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.

Thanks to jayli for the hookup on this one. Pours clear yellow gold with a bone white head. Nose is malt, bread, herbs, bitterness and slight dryness. Flavor is similar with a medium body and a bitter finish.

halfonit (1227) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 20, 2009
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.

Jblauvs (1357) - Chester, Vermont, USA - OCT 27, 2009
Light Golden pour. Light, clean, slightly hoppy aroma. Flavor light and slightly sweet. crisp and slightly bitter at the end. Simple and clean, decent Blonde.

lakamoso (4) - Dartmouth, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 9, 2009 does not count
Drinkable, but very forgetable. Average at best. Reminded me of Coors Light, that I used to drink as a newbie beer drinker,and used to think that was great, a bit older and wiser now, this beer is nothing special.

drmachata (7) - Rhode Island, USA - JUL 10, 2009 does not count
Pleasant gold color with a quick white head and light lace. Excellent example of golden ale. Clean bodied with sweet start and gentle bite at the end. Hints of spice. A solid pour.

decaturstevo (5433) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 24, 2009
Golden pour with a fluffy white head and lace. Aroma of light malt and not much more. Flavor of semi sweet malt with a bit of a cloying sweet finish. Medium bodied with excellent carbonation. I think this may be one of the best golden ales I’ve had. It didn’t have much on the aroma but pretty flavorful for a golden.

Pours light gold into a shaker. Bright white head with very good retention leaves spotted sheets as it recedes to coat surface. Light malt aromas. Crisp and light with a dry cracker finish.

green (186) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 1, 2009
No head whatsoever; Light apple aroma, no hops presence; medium body, flavors more apple, rather dry, grainy, light metallic bitterness, light residual grain. Drinkable but entierly lacking in character.
