COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mayflower Summer Rye Ale is our first take on a summer beer. Low in alcohol, this beer combines rye spiciness with mild and fruity bitterness to provide a well-balanced and refreshing beverage for those hot summer days.

Bottle. Pours a clear pale straw body with a foamy white head that slowly faded. The nose is The nose is pretty light, just a bit of pale malt with a light rye spiciness and a touch of hops. The flavor is pretty spicy and heavy on the rye despite being so delicate and low on the malt bill. Quite refreshing and thirst quenching session beer. Light bodied and refreshingly crisp with a lively fizzy carbonation level. Very nice summer beer, I could throw down quite a few of these on a hot summer day.

Pours a hazy very light yellow with a durable snow white head. The aroma was fainter than I was anticipating, and consisted of some sour yeasty notes. Bitter hops and rye spice are the main flavors here, no alcohol presence at 3.7% abv. Small floral and pepper notes as it warms, but isnít that against the point of a summer beer? Pleasant, very drinkable. Very light aftertaste, it disappears to a slight bitterness a second after swallowing. Very active carbonation that bites back a bit, medium body.

Tap at Willimantic. Hazy gold pour with a clingy white head. Nice rye bit to the nose and taste. Easy drinker and full flavored.

12oz bottle in a tumbler. Pours hazy, light golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of light malts, some light rye and wheat notes, and a decent amount of floral hops. Flavor the same. Average to lighter texture. A good summer beer.

Itís hard for me to find a light-bodied session beer that can hold my interest. This one does just that - joining a short list that also includes Pilsner Urquell and All Day IPA. Anyway, this one is very smooth with a hint of floral hops and some nice spice notes from the rye. Quenching & flavorful.

crazyvin (1934) - New York, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Pale yellow body with a white head that had no retention or lace. Aroma had some toasted cereal malts and a touch of mild hops. No rye character. Flavor was balanced toward the malt flavors. Some cereal and some corn flavors. Mildly spicy and at times it seemed astringent. Carbonation seemed appropriate. Somewhat. disappointing.

Very mild and dry. The rye flavor against the hops is present yet unremarkable, which could be a good thing if one was looking for something sessionable with a touch more flavor than usual. The yeast character is whatís tripping me up on this one. This is made for someone else.
