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.

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 (1901) - 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.

GBBF. Hazy pale gold beer, suddy white head. Light palate - clean and slightly dry. Nice light floral hops with a touch of citrus well buried. Mild fresh hop sting. Mild minerals. Not sure about rye spice - maybe but the hop string is disguising it. Semi dry finish. Light and refreshing.

On tap at Portsmouth Brewery. Pour is straw yellow with some slight brown tinting around the side. Very light for a rye ale. Little to no head in the glass when it arrived. Aroma is of straw, lemon citrus, and yeast. Flavor is similar but with some slight rye bread in the background. Light bodied and easy drinking, calling it a rye ale is a bit strange because Iíd expect more of a body.
