Free Bird is a solid Pale Ale from Begyle. It poured a copper clear with no head and no lace. The scent had orange peel. The taste was evenly balanced and had nice citrus peel and came off the pallet clean. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. overall it was better than I expected. It is a very sessionable pale ale.

12 oz. bottle, bottled on 02/22/16 printed on the label. Awesome to see Begyle dating bottles now, and in twelve ounce bottles nonetheless. Acquired a single bottle of this stuff as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's.

Poured into a Duvel tulip snifter.

A - Pours a burnt copper golden orange body with some chill haze. One finger of frothy soapy white head that leaves good strands of lacing.

S - The aroma is fairly subtle, but what's here is nice: soft bready malt undertones with hints of citrus rinds & lemon.

T - Big spicy hop profile on this one: big earthy, herbal Falconers Flight hops. Notes of citrus, lemon, orange, grass, with a bready / biscuity malt backing. Good piney / resinous hop bitterness on the finish.

M - Feel is smooth, crisp, creamy, & easy-drinking. Light-bodied stuff.

Overall, a decent APA ; bordering on IPA status here, however. A nice drinking offering from Begyle; look forward to seeing more twelve ounces from these guys!

Begyle Brewing Free Bird -----4/5.

On draft in tulip. Straw colored appearance. Ff Hop bitterness, some lacing, leaving some bite in aftertaste. A decent session apa, but reminds me of a watery domestic of my youth
