COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A “very sweet brook” welcomed the cold and thirsty Pilgrims to Plymouth. Today, it provides us with the soft water that is perfectly suited for brewing lighter-colored and milder beers. Mayflower Golden Ale is crisp and dry with a slight malt flavor and a subtle hop spice. This straw-colored ale provides easy drinkability for the novice yet plenty of flavor for the most discriminating connoisseur.

Bottle from the Mayflower Compact Signature Variety pack. Clear and pale yellow. The aroma is of sweet grain, fresh and clean. Light bodied with good carbonation. Nearly flavorless, maybe some hints of corn, grass, and lightly hopped. One dimensional but very light and drinkable.

puboflyons (3054) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 18, 2012
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with a marking of IKG-G5731712. The pour is straw yellow with a huge, puffy white head that lingers on. The aroma is grainy, crisp, and clean. The body is light. The taste is pretty straight forward for the style with a grainy character at first followed by a low but lingering hop bitterness. Not bad.

annunz123 (948) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Malt and flowery hops in the aroma, with some lemon/citrus. Flavor starts sweet and finishes with some hop bitterness. Nothing special, but a good, easy-drinking beer.

kassner (1536) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Very nice if a little on the thin side for what I think of as a Golden Ale. this is more of a miller in Ale’s clothing. It is nice and drinkable, with modest clean hops and some fruits

Bottle, Pours clear dark yellow with a thin and fading white head. Aroma of old grass, nuts, spice. Light body, medium carbonation. Slightly sweet, with a little bread and nuts. Lightly spicy finish with a lingering hint of pine... pretty much light from start to finish. No real flaws, easy drinker.
