3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap at the Publick House brookline 07/08/11. Good aroma, tart, little yeast funk about it, rye give it a nice grabbing scent. Hazed golden yellow color, Minor lace. Light Sour flavor. Light body, thin smooth mouthfeel, dry finish, nice take on a summer beer. certainly would be nice as a lawnmower beer. always nice to have another Mayflower offering.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Deep Ellum - Allston, MA. In many ways, this was pushing what "session" beer is, because what came in the glass was almost "low alcohol" or a just a whisper of a beer. Faint spicy hop or rye aroma. Flavor was gently sweet and very light, but clean in flavor and at least somewhat expressive of a spicy malt bill. You can beat the flavored drinkability on a beer like this, though.

Draft @ Sunset Grill and Tap. Alston, MA. Hazy gold / yellow color. Smell of wheat and rye bread. Taste is much the same with some spice and light hop in the finish. Light bitterness. Pretty good flavor for a low ABV brew. Worth a try if you can find on draft.

I tried this the same time I had the Wachusett Rye. This one was not quite as good. On the hoppy side, which makes it not all that refreshing.
