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.

Has a nice golden color. Has a slightly bitter taste at first but finishes dry. I found it to be very refreshing and grew on me with every mouthful. I sense a hint of fruitiness but otherwise I found it be a well balanced brew. I’ll look for this one again in the future.

I was pretty exited to try this because I really like Mayflower’s IPA and Pale ale but it didn’t quite live up to the hype. I poured it into a glass and it does have a nice golden color, but it’s pretty average from that point on. It smells like any basic macro brew beer while having a very bland taste, almost kind of watered down. Probably would be pretty refreshing on a hot day to go with a light snack, but other than that I wouldn’t really recommend it. I’d stick with one of Mayflower’s other brews.

Tasted almost the same as the pale ale to me, maybe a little on the lighter side but pretty similar overall. Well carbonated and refreshing, just nothing out of the ordinary. Solid.

j12601 (6743) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 30, 2010
Bottle leftover from camping up at Hill Farmstead. Pours a clear gold with a medium sized creamy white head. Soft hay, a bit of green apple and yeast over some candy sugar. Medium bodied, creamy, a bit of cream ale flavor and some off flavors as well. A bit bitter on the finish. Not bad, not great.

This poured a straw to golden yellow color with a white head. Aroma was grainy pale malt, some yeastyness and nothing else really. Flavor was light, pale malt, a little grain, bread and some biscut. Nothing offensive but extremely boring.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2010 At $4 a pint, this is by far the best value right now at The Dive Bar in Worcester, MA. Refreshing, with taste.... After another tasting, not as big a fan. Maybe it was the electricity of a spring storm coming in last time, or the aftertaste of red chili flakes from my pasta now, but either way I probably won’t get this again

Pours a four finger white head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Crystal clear pale yellow color. Nose is green apples. Flavor is green apples, hints of caramel and some hops. Unusual golden. $1.85 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, MA.

Pale light yellow golden color. Aroma is basically of malts, hops, and a little bit of caramel. Taste is pretty much the same. The malts really come out in front with a slight citrus flavor in the back end. It has a smooth aftertaste in the finish. Overall not too bad of a brew. A good session beer.
