Served in the commemorative shaker pint glass at Mundelein Craft Beer Fest 2013.
Makin' my way over to the Begyle table with the Cheers theme strangely beginning in my head... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sunrise brass topped by a finger of cream-white foam. The nose comprises mild wet wheat, very light grass, and a kiss of sweet biscuit. The taste leads with a strong note of dark greenery, which is then backed up by grass, wheat, and biscuit. The hops really don't meld all that well with the grains, leading to an almost astringent bitterness in the finish, despite the relative weakness of the hops on an absolute scale. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, this is my least favorite Begyle beer thus far, one that shows promise but doesn't execute all that well at the moment.

The bottle is marked Batch 1
A- it poured a lovely golden straw color with a hint of orange. A 1 & 1/2 finger white foamy head formed and settled in nicely for the entire drink. Good lacing crept up the sides of my pint glass. It was a very pretty pint.
S- I could smell the grains & wheat notes right away. A bit of biscuit and a smudge of sweetness rounded the aroma out. I didn't really get any hop profile on the nose.
T- there are the hops! A herbal flavor hit me right upfront. It's heavy on the grains with the biscuit note and a mild sort of sweetness helping to balance the taste. A resin quality appeared in the tail end. It wasn't a hop bomb by any means, but it was rather hop forward. Tasty, but not really memorable. Personally, I thought that it could have used a bit of citrus to brighten it, but that could be just me.
M- the mouthfeel was medium. There was an abundance of carbonation, which made it very easy to drink. The finish was short to medium.
O- I would drink it again (especially on a warm summer day). But I'm rather excited to see if this new brewery tweaks this beer just a bit. I think as they refine the recipe, it could become something really wonderful.

First batch of bottled beer from Begyle.
Pale straw color with a saturated orange tone in the center. Billowing head of creamy foam that sticks around, leaving behind concentric lace rings and a steady head that never retreats. Slow but steady carb trails visible. Looks pretty nice.
Husky grain aroma, wheat... mild sweetness, fairly subdued in general.
Flavor shows a little bit more hop character, slightly green and herbal bitterness comes through in the aftertaste. Mellow wheaty feel, smooth though not much oomph. Light and grainy, light hops in the finish. A bit bland, not much to set it apart really. Hope this improves in the future.
