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

Bright, shiny golden color, actively bubbly with a head to show for it. A mild spicy, fruity, minty edge of hop aroma meets a light biscuity grain for a pleasing nose. It might have a lighter body, which is fine for the style, but the malt goes above and beyond, at least up front. Dry with a big biscuity tone. Hops jump in the balance with a spicy herbal flavor and slightly sharp bitterness. A hint of shortbread and herbal hop in the dry finish.

Style-wise, Mayflower amped it up enough to bring it from potentially mundane to a killer session ale.

Thanx Johnnnniiee.

Light black stamp mid to right corner reads "PKG 11/14/13"

Into a pint glass.

A: Clear golden color; very transparent, very foamy white head that dies within thirty seconds leaving a messy foamy lacing sticking to the sides of the glass

S: sweet corn, somewhat grasy

T: mainly sweet through the sweet corn, grassiness helps to balance; clean dry sweet aftertaste, dry finish

M: light on the body, pretty sessionable as this would go pretty well with its respected food, carbonation is pretty smooth - good for the style and good for me

O: pretty good American Blonde Ale that I would have again with its respected food or as the weather gets warmer if I lived in its distro

3.98/5  rDev +9.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: bright, clear golden color; serious carbonation; a one finger frothy head that slowly settled and kept about 1/4 of it's body; good lacing

Smell: grassy or hay-like

Taste: Again, grassy and hay-like; slight lemon; quite mild

Mouthfeel: light, clean, and crisp; nice carbonation, but not too ticklish; very enjoyable; almost no stringency

Overall: Exactly what I would expect from a golden ale. I typically like a more robust beer, but sometimes I want something light and crisp. This is what I'm looking for at those times. This would be perfect on a warm summer day after mowing the lawn or just hanging out on the porch with friends.
