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.

ohhh the buttery goodness, and so easy to drink, nice that they made it a mild ale instead of going gonzo on it. light brown/red color, taste is of buttered bread with some hop spice and floral notes. yum.

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.

Clean light brew that comes on easy and ends with a desire for more. Golden color with a short head. Flavor alludes to the bite of rye. An uncommon delight.

Une bouteille de 12 onces. La bière blanche développe une célèbre mousse qui génère une longue dentelle. Le nez est pils et poivré, fait de blé, de paille, de gazon, de notes citronnées et de levure allemande. Le goût est satisfaisant, plein de seigle et de cultivars, épicé, jaune et fruité, sec et bienvenue. La bouche est bien gonflée par les céréales. Le pétillement est fortement estival. La finale est houblonnée et aigrelette avec une durabilité qui m’étonne. Sans être un coup de cœur, cette concoction est complètement facile à boire.

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.

Light golden color, almost like a witbier.. Grassy hops, citrus, and spice in the aroma. Flavor is mild but clean and crisp, with more citrus and spice. Nothing overwhelming, but more flavor than you get in most summer beers while still nice and drinkable.

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.
