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

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with three inch cap of foam; excellent retention and a curtain of lacing is left behind

Smell: Caramel, tea and tobacco, with hints of pine

Taste: The malt has an earthy aspect, with bready and caramel tones adding complexity; in the mid-palate, the hops take over, bringing piney bitterness that is supplemented by tea and tobacco; nicely balanced, into the finish, with a lingering bitter tone

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: There is a lot going on in this beer that doesn't necessarily come through on the first few sips; while this is not my favorite style, this is quite a good beer

Thanks, mj0126, for the opportunity

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.
