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.

Good drinkability though a malt story. Deep golden body with foaming offwhite head. The aromas are a little distracting. Good malts, with a mild hop finish, nicely carbonated. Refreshing on the first warm day of spring.Thanks Jay.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 31, 2009
Pale golden colour with a sticky white head. Aroma is softly fruity. Light apricot and a bit of soft spicy hoppiness. Lean pale malt and a bit of grassy/herbal hops over the light crackery malts. Nice soft aroma with a little bit of fruitiness. This sort of reminds me of Coopers Sparkling Ale, with the mix of soft apple and apricot fruitiness and light spicy hoppiness. Soft palate... really quite tasty.

j12601 (6584) - 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.

Thanks to Frumpty for the 12 oz bottle. Pours a clear bright golden with low to med carbonation adn a modest white head which fades. Aroma is nice doughy bready pils malt which was a nice surprise with very light herbal hops- clean yeast makes it smell almost like a pilsner. Flavor is more ale-like with some fruity doughy yeastiness, light crackery malts, light herbal hops and a clean light finish- not much else going on but is to be expected for a golden ale. pretty good for the style- reminds me a bit of blue pt summer ale.

decaturstevo (4979) - 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.
