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.

Very mild flavors. Touch of citrus in the front and some bitterness but overall pretty boring.

Bottle. Overall a nice, well-balanced beer, small (enough) hints of citrus, not too much hoppiness. Had this to lobster.

Rcvd in trade. The appearance has a clear golden color; is very transparent, has a very foamy white head that dies within thirty seconds leaving a messy foamy lacing sticking to the sides of the glass. The smell has some sweet corn in the front and shows a somewhat grasy aspect to it The taste is mainly sweet through the sweet corn. The grassiness helps to balance. There is a clean dry sweet aftertaste with a dry finish. On the palate, she sits light on the body, comes across pretty sessionable as this would go pretty well with its respected food. Carbonation is pretty smooth - good for the style and good for me. Overall, this is a pretty good American Blonde Ale that I would have again with its respected food or as the weather gets warmer if I lived in its distro.
