4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rcvd in trade.
The appearance was an amber/copper colored body with a one finger white foamy head that lasted about a good minute before dieing into the body. There was some nice adequate somewhat ringy lacing that clung all around.
The smell had citrusy hops up front with a nice light caramel malts ever so delicately in the background.
The taste had a super nice citrus sweet to caramel sweet that eloquently manages to lead to the same aftertaste and adds in a dry sort of caramel finish.
The palate sits about a medium on the body with a decent carbonation that is good for an American Amber/Red ale and for me.
Overall, gee weez, I wasn’t expecting this one to be as good, but it sure got a big wow from me. Way to go Mayflower. I’d trade for this again.

I Have generally found beers from this brewery a little ho hum, but not this one. To me, it falls somewhere between a hoppy pale ale and an understated ipa. Resiny and earthy and very refreshing.

Overall, a really good take on a hoppy amber ale with a nice spicy, malty backbone finish. These guys may have something going for them.

Bottled in Plymouth. Somewhat dark amber pour. Malty and choppy. Pretty decent brew...

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle that appears to be stamped 1/3013. It might just be smudged. The pour is a decent looking medium amber with a thin head and stagnant carbonation. The aroma is like the flowers of spring with floral hops and biscuit malts. The body is light to medium with a slight acidity. The taste has a solid hop character all around with a moderate bitterness that does not linger long.
