COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Traditional English pale ales have mild malt character and aroma offset by pronounced hop bitterness. Mayflower Pale Ale offers a New World take on this Old World favorite. It combines a slightly sweet and toasted malt quality from caramel malt with floral and citrusy aromas from the finest quality English and American grown hops. The result is a well-balanced, highly drinkable ale.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2013 Seems out of style. Itís not terrible but the malt is very assertive. Taste almost more like a lager. A bit watery too.

Lukaduke (1998) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Pours a medium golden color with good clarity and a finger of eggshell foam. Nose is grainy, oatmeal, toast and a hint of citrus. Palate follows with a heavy graininess, stale grass profile and a spicy almost rye like bitterness that comes through midpalate and lingers in the finish. Uneventful.

Scrapersnbeer (1465) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Some caramel frosted crackers and hay, not a lot of fruit. Clear orange, moderate carbonation, or so it appears. Sweet malty flavor with some mineral presence. Some bitterness, maybe 20 BUs. Undermined by itís softness, the plush body gives it a watery feel. On the other hand this makes it very drinkable with an okay flavor.

Bottle. Pours clear orange gold with white head. Nose and taste of toasted grain, caramel, old citrus peel and hay. Medium body.

blklab2007 (1939) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle poured an orange amber color with a one finger white head that retained very well. Aroma has mild pale malts, light hops, and some dusty citrus. Mouth feel is average for the style and there is plenty of carbonation. Flavor is mostly malts with a touch of bitterness and dusty aged hops.

viddi (2) - ICELAND - SEP 19, 2013 does not count
A bit too watery and bland. Nothing sticks out. The color is on the dark side for a pale ale.

Slimwit (2) - New Hampshire, USA - AUG 5, 2013 does not count
Poured bottle with nice white head. Decent malt aroma but darker than expected color. Taste was thin, with no discernable impact. Beer finished bitterly without giving a sense of hops. Disappointing.

Reynolds314 (2228) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 27, 2013
I hate when pale ales arent pale. This is a flavorless english amber with not much going on at all. Very watery and lightly hopped with slightly spicy hops. Mediocre at best.
