Poured an attractive light lemon color in a tulip with a 2F head.

Aroma: lemon, some funk.

Mouth feel: Very carbonated. This enhances of the drinkability of the beer.

Taste: lemon and and a hint of rye.

Finish: excellent hoppy bitterness.

Overall: an refreshing summer ale. The carbonation and hoppy finish bolster the overall taste. It's a low ABV beer, but it has a lot of character.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip.

Appearance: Pours a really pale straw with heavy carbonation and a half inch white head that sticks around a bit. Lacing minimal. Awfully pale but still attractive.

Aroma: Smells of rye bread, hops, wheatiness, spice, lemon and citrus. Nice combination of aromas.

Taste: Tasty stuff. Taste follows the nose, with rye and lemon leading the way. Very drinkable and quaffable.

Mouthfeel: Sessionable and light of body. Great spring/summer type beer.

Overall: This is great stuff in my opinion. Definitely stands out from the deluge of goldens and wheat ales that hit the market for summer. Refreshing and delicious.

3.35/5  rDev -5.1%

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.
