We brew our beer in small batches to ensure that freshness and quality are never compromised. Our focus is to offer our customers a balanced complexity of aroma and flavour. Natural Blonde uses 3 different Malts and distinct hops in order to achieve this goal. The result is a refreshing Blonde beer with 26 IBUs and 4.9% alcohol. Style Our Kichesippi Natural Blonde is an all malt Pale Ale. Aroma A noble hop presence offers hints of spice, citrus and caramel. Palate The hop presence introduces the palate to a subtle fruitiness and light malt flavours. A medium bitterness at the end makes this a food friendly brew.

Cimbasso (886) - - MAY 14, 2016
Sampled on draught. A light golden brew with a thin white head. Pleasantly malty taste with hints of lemon and lime. Rather thin mouthfeel. Curiously salty, bitter finish. Not bad.

Spab (3726) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2014
355 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear golden colour with modest-sized white head. Aroma is citric fruit, sort of orangey, biscuit and light grass. Flavour is biscuity grains, interesting orange note and a mellow grassiness. Astringent finish. Not bad.

On tap at Chez Lucien. Clear yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is cereals, corn, a bit of sweetness. Taste is fresh malts, caramel with spicy notes. Light body, moderate carbonation, watery. Weird salty and earthy finish.

BreWedge (530) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - AUG 3, 2013
On tap @ Elmdale Osterhouse Ottawa. Pours a clear, pale blond with a modest creamy white head. Aromas are very much like Steamwhistle, corn and grain dominant. Tastes are grain and corn with a metallic tinge. Slight bitterness present as well. Thin, light body, a bit of bite from the carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2013
Bottle, from the brewery (6 pack - also sampled it on tap there). Pretty distinct hop aroma which I am learning is a house trait it would seem - I like it . Light bread notes as well. Pours a clear medium yellow with a creamy white head. Taste - not just another flagship blonde here folks, there is way more hops in here than expected. Spicy with some citrus, this one has a lot of bite - the 1855 is the crowd pleasing option from this brewery - this blonde is pushing the limits in terms of flavour. I guess I just find it pretty interesting. Fresh counts obviously. I had a couple of these on the weekend while bbqing from the bottle and one tonight a little more refined from the glass but have enjoyed them equally. This is a good beer that I will buy again, likely in quantity as the weather warms (does the weather warm in Russell, ON btw?).
