Waller St. Bootleg Blonde
Clean and refreshing with a fine balance between malt and hops. This blonde ale lets the delicate complexities of beer shine through. Blonde Ales are in a way the "Hello World" of Craft Beers, and this one will keep the conversation going. Brewer’s Notes Producing a Blonde Ale is a challenge because there are countless good examples and the subtle character of the style leaves little room for imperfections. We chose to show-case local products in our Blonde Ale by using local hops including a mystery hop historically grown in the region early last century.
Golden Ale/Blond Ale
There are a few different types of blond ale. The first is the traditional "Canadian Ale", an adjunct-laden, macrobrewed, top-fermented equivalent of the American Standard. The second is common in US brewpubs - a light starter ale, with marginally more hop and body than a macrobrew, fewer adjuncts, but still not a flavourful beer by any means. The British interpretation is easily the boldest, hoppiest blond ale rendition. Some of these can almost be considered American Pales they are so hopped up - very crisp, refreshing, with relatively low alcohol compared with their North American counterparts.
