Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #36 (Jan 2010):

Mayflower's flagship beer. No, that was not a pun. It's their take on the English style.

An impressive head tops the crystal-clear golden boldness. Aroma skirts from a fresh fig note to citric minty hoppiness, to mild caramel confections. Big on smoothness, with a good level of carbonation to pass on some crispness as well. Earthy, woody, fruity and bitter with most of the flavor coming from the hops. Between each layer of hop is a layer of malt, which is big on toasted, caramel and rustic bready flavors. Nutty yeast with some fruitiness in the back takes that long walk with the slowly fading hops and malt. Bittersweet.

This is one very complex English Pale Ale. If it was a blind tasting, it would be hard to tell that it was American brewed. Set us up in front of a dart board with some pork scratchings and pickled eggs, and we'll be good for the night.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: Clear; almost the color of honey. Thin head; dissipated quickly, leaving a thin ring; no lacing.

S: Grassy; not over powering. A little earthy as it warmed.

T: Slight caramel up front. Got a little grass and earthiness ; medium bitter dry finish with a little malt sweetness in the background.

M: Medium-light body. Carbonation is a little high.

Drinkable, but not something I'd go out of my way for.

Mayflower Brewing Company - Mayflower Pale Ale, poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Look - Pours a clear amber with a small foamy head that retains some. Decent lacing.

Smell - Aroma is decidedly English hops with malt back behind, somewhat subdued.

Taste - Taste is akin to an American pilsner or lager like Bud, but the hops are more noticeable.

Mouthfeel - Light-bodied with moderate carbonation. Crisp and drinkable. Dry earthy bitter hops linger faintly.

Overall - This isn't my favorite pale ale, but I would recommend it as a hoppier alternative to a light American lager.
