Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Very hoppy floral aroma. Sweet as opposed to bitter scent. Copper color, just a little haze. A little bitterness, lots of sweet maltiness, then finishes bitter again. Nice light IPA for gradually warming weather.

tfontana (559) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 11, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from One Stop Market. Aroma is malty base with resin, fruit, citrus and mild pine hops. Appearance is beautifully clear amber with nice sparkle, finger width off white foamy head with fair retention and nice leggy lacing. Taste is as aroma but the elements are in conflict with one another and produce a disharmonious mix with no clear flavor direction and just a bitter feel. Palate is medium bodied with frothy texture, average to soft carbonation, dry bitter finish. Overall, a beautiful look and wonderful smell--it really is all about the aroma--because it does not carry through to the taste. Much promise that falls short.

YigSvartka (274) - Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 12, 2015
Transparent crimson brown with a mid sized beige head. Robust aroma containing notes of dried cherry and raisin, caramel, hops, and brown sugar. Mid bodied. Unexpectedly quite good. Notes of dried berries, caramel candied sugar, grapefruit, and spruce with a mildly bitter finish.

johnnnniee (3601) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - APR 24, 2015
Bottle from the Lazy dog Lightly hazy red amber color with a huge frothy off white head. Big pine and resin with some citrus on the nose. Plenty of bread and caramel and just a touch of chocolate to round things out. Drinkable with an old school feel to it.

malrubius (2482) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - APR 7, 2015
Bottle from Brew Topia. Clear amber with lasting head. Medium roasted nutty fruity sweetness with assertive, almost overly aggressive, citrus and woody hop. Medium light body and lively carbo accentuates hop. This is a pretty blatant pound you over the head hoppy amber. It’s pretty good but not very complex of subtle. Good.

Deep copper red. Pine, fruit, citrus, lemon peel, fruit, toasted malt, flavor of toasted malt, caramel, lemon, resin

Pours an amber from the tap. Good hoppy aroma but rather falls flat in the mouth, not much going on. Okay beer.

Bulk_Carrier (3468) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - MAR 27, 2014
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.

Fruity bitter aftertaste. Brown clear. Really disappointing. Hoppy bitterness

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.
