Date: 10/21/14
Location: Cambridge Whole Foods
Draught/Bottle: Bottle
Glassware: Red Wine Glass

Appearance: Extremely pale on the yellow to pale gold side. Allows a ton of light in and very easy to see through. Bone white carbonation that quickly dissipates. No cling.
Aroma: Very clean aroma, pale malts with a very Bready aroma. Crusts and water crackers. Some bitter scents from the hops as well as a very lemony aroma. Very clean yeast.
Taste: There is a very nice light flavor of bread and butter from the wheats and maybe the yeast. It finishes with a lemony dryness and pucker from the hop and hop bitterings. All the flavors are very clean and nothing is overpowering.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied and very lightly carbonated. A drying mouthfeel from the lemon hop acidity is really the only thing to mention as none of the flavors or even the weight of the beer doesn't last long.

When summer comes, cases of Golden Ale are the way to go. Great year round but perfect in the summer. When I have friends looking to start drinking beer this is often one of the brews I suggest to start with. Light malt, light hops, great refreshing taste. Wonderful

A - Pours a vivid golden yellow into a pilsner flute. The foamy head springs up quickly and retains well given the lightness of the beer and leaves fairly thick, even lacing on the sides of the glass. There is steady visible carbonation streaming up the center of the beer. The beer sparkles when held up to the light.

S - Great aroma, and stronger than I expected. Grassy hops with a touch of spice overlays a firm bready sweetness.

T - Light but vibrant flavors are almost similar to a farmhouse ale. I get a mild spiciness with hints of lemongrass. The flavors are toned down, but excellent. Very light malt balances the hops quite well. Something like cracker or light breadiness. Light noble hop character on the finish.

M - Light bodied and quite refreshing. Perfect timing drinking this on a warm day after getting out of work early. The carbonation is quite active on the tongue and gives almost a prickly sensation. There is also a mild dryness the comes in on the finish, which is clean.

O - Good work from Mayflower here. I know this is a year-rounder, but I think the brewery would be better served putting this guy in 12-packs and marketing it for a summer release.
