12 oz. bottle, bottled on date 02/17/16 printed on the label. Nice to see Begyle bottle dating their stuff. My second twelve ounce bottle from these guys; acquired a single bottle as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's.

Poured into a Duvel tulip snifter.

A - Pours a tawny golden body, not quite copper-colored, but a bit darker than the usual blonde ale. Semi-transparent. Carbonation appears apt. Minor thin bubbly lacing that doesn't really stick.

S - Aroma is pretty bland and uninteresting. As promised, slightly estery, with some faint notes of sweetened bready malts. Slight mustiness. Not offensive or off-putting, but there isn't enough going on here to call it pleasant either.

T - Taste is the same: bready, grainy, yeast, again, slightly estery with notes of grapes. A simple brew, with perhaps very slight trace of a fruity hop presence.

M - Feel is smooth, crisp, & creamy. Light-bodied and easy-drinking stuff, with a dry finish.

Overall, a pretty average blonde ale offering from Begyle. Not a whole lot going on here at all, and nothing that makes it stand out. Worth a try, but i wouldn't have it again.

The Begyle Blonde is good and a solid blonde. It poured a golden clear with no head and no lace. The scent is biscuit. The taste is evenly balanced and easy to drink....very sessionable. There is nice bread notes and a touch of sweetness. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. overall it is decent.
