COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One hundred years after the Mayflower landed at Plymouth, a new beer style emerged in England. Taking its cues from “Three Threads”, a bartender’s blend of three distinct ales, Porter became the beer of choice for 18th-century Londoners. Mayflower Porter embraces this history. This complex brew is smooth and full-flavored with notes of roasted coffee beans and bittersweet chocolate that will warm the palate all year long.

Nice roasted malt flavor. Definitely has some flavors of a classic British pub ale. Sweet, some caramel malt, nut brown ale notes, and some bread. Not too bitter. Solid, but I still prefer the more robustly-flavored porters from Smuttynose and Ipswich.

PhillyCraft (3219) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Tap at Reservoir, pours black with small ring of head. Body is light and refreshing for a porter. No stickiness but it is low in alcohol so makes sense. Notes of dark malt, roast, milk chocolate, and light licorice. Not bad
