My first Mayflower brew, an in-state brand I had overlooked out of ignorance. Attracted by the name and by the fact I had read somewhere it is a good brewery.
Bottled on Feb. 16(?) 2014. Hard to read the numbers printed over text on the label. Self-served at 48 degrees.
Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Tree House snifter.
a: Clear copper with an inch tall white head which receded to considerable surface foam and dense lacing.
s: Bready malt
t: Mild biscuity malt under a moderate hop bite. Some dark fruit notes appear later.
m: Light to moderate, good body.
o: A pretty good dinner drink, just not an awful lot of flavor, especially at first, leaving the hop bite prominent. Looks like it will be full of flavor, but comes up a bit short.

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.

4.29/5 rDev +6.2%

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!
