COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer could be Chicago’s replacement for Spotted Cow. It’s light, creamy, fruity on the finish, golden, refreshing and easy drinking with clear attention to detail and totally sessionable.

Single bottle from Binny’s, 1/14. I get to give this one its "ranking." Malty, sweet beer smell under the cap. In the glass, there’s short fizzy head, and kind of a cheap lager smell. Taste is a little thick in the mouthfeel, which does notch it up a bit. It’s okay; not the Spotted Cow killer they’re claiming to be, just a little too sweet. After their many wilder brews on tap and in limited bombers, I guess they want to zero in on some basic beers to go to stores every day.

Pour on tap, clear yellow pour with white head, aroma brought biscuit, bread, some yeasty notes with a hint of spicy and earthy hops. Taste had a mix of grass, bread, biscuit, some hints of wheat into a bit of earth, spice, finishing bitter, dry.

nuplastikk (4905) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 10, 2014
12oz bottle. Macro-ish tastes, funky garbage tinged off aroma. Someone who drinks macro beer would probably enjoy this a lot, but it is a pretty shabby beer for most on this site. A pinch better ingredients, but significant less quality control. Definitely one I won;t buy again.

Average at best. Not close to spotted cow. Likely wouldn't drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KansaiBeerLvrs (2719) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 4, 2014
Sample at the brewery. Begyle blond has a bit of a buttery and fruity ale aroma. Clean gold color with an earthy grassy light malt and mild crisp bitter finish. Tasted better than it smelled.

Barnoloid (277) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Draft pour at Girl and the Goat. A very decent blonde ale. Does not deviate from this classic style. Refreshing, drinkable with a smooth mouthfeel. Reasonable amount of carbonation. Soft hops against a slightly citric backdrop.

Slightly wheaty and bitter. Draft is yellow in color with a white head. Had this one at begyle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yellow color, light beer with a good finish. Had a bit of a bitter taste but it doesn’t last.

Draft at Grafton. Slightlyhazed blonde. Easy drinking, zippy, refreshing. Really enjoyed it.
