Mayflower Brewing Company - Mayflower Spring Hop, poured into a DFH Spiegelau IPA glass.

Look - Pours a beautiful filtered deep ruby amber with a terrific soapy head that dissipates at a moderate pace and leaves behind tons of sticky lacing. Perfect appearance.

Smell - Aroma is rich red malts with a nice pine/floral hop overlay. Some malty breadiness.

Taste - Clean and crisp, the malts sit back for a blast of resiny hops.

Mouthfeel - Rests quite bitter with a little bit of malt stickiness. Some malt heat booziness which is only slightly off-putting for the ABV. Light-medium bodied with low-medium carbonation.

Overall - Good hoppy amber/red. Big hops, of the piney, not juicy variety. A solid take on the style with some oomph for hop heads.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A - Arrived a copper color with an inch or so of head. Darker than I expected. Bubbly head lasted longer than I expected, but didn't really leave any lacing. Nice looking beer.

S - Nothing significant, but a nice mix of citrus hops and light malt.

T - Follows the nose. Basic, but really nice. The cask absolutely imparted a woody character to the beer. Lots of subtleties.

M- Medium bodied and soft. Not flat like I expected from a cask.

O - Great experience. Hard to judge based on the cask preparation. It's nice to have a beer at a bar that has carbonation and isn't freezing cold. Would buy again!

Inch tall off white dense-bubbled head. Body is a red/mahogany color. Sticky spiderweb lacing, good head retention.

Piney/woody aromas.

Rich toasted caramel flavors with a biting hop profile. Would guess more than the stated 5.3%abv just because it packs the flavor so well.

Medium carbonation, medium-full mouthfeel.

Enjoying the prickly hop bite on this one. Thanks mj0126 for this great local beer!
