3.8/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appears hazy and pale about the color of a berliner weiss. Head is minimal which goes to small skim and ring.

On the smell I get spice, yeast light maltiness and some citrus.

The taste is really light with a definite spiciness. Aftertaste is a little bitter and maybe even a hint of sourness. Taste also seems a bit watery.

Mouthfeel is quite nice. Light body, active carbonation. Nice refreshing summer brew.

Overall though it's a really easy drinking brew. 3.8%....it's something.

3.35/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped PKG 6/11/13. Sampled on October 16, 2013.

It pours hazy pale yellow to olive with lively carbonation going up to a fizzy white head.

The aroma is of grains, toasted biscuit, lemon, and maybe some floral hops.

The body is light to medium and reasonably refreshing. Good for a summer weight.

The taste brings out the rye grains at first with a notable lemon and floral hop character on the backside. Slightly tart ending. Not high on my list of Mayflower brews but it would be good in the summer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Pours an extremely pale straw color. I was actually shocked by how almost-white this beer is. It has nice, lively carbonation that maintains a thin head and leaves better-than-expected lacing on the glass.

S - The dominant smell in this beer is fresh hops (the beer is just over a month old). There is also some spiciness backing up the hops.

T - Nice citrusy hop profile with a subtle malt sweetness. The finish produces a building rye flavor that rushes in like the tide.

M - On the light side of medium, but more than I would expect given the alcohol content. It's definitely another element that I like about this beer.

O - I bought a 6-pack as an impulse buy and I'm glad I did. I've now had three of these beers with the third coming straight from the bottle. This third was my favorite thus far, as I honestly am not a big fan of the color of the beer, and somehow the hop character shines through better directly from the bottle. It's relatively expensive, so I wouldn't buy it for myself, but I might bring it to the next BBQ I attend. It really is a nice summer beer.
