From the 12 fl. oz. bottle that appears to be stamped 1/30/13. Sampled on June 18, 2013.

The pour is a very attractive medium amber but there's little to no head and the carbonation seems a little slow and stagnant.

The aroma has a fine floral character like the blossoms of a New England spring. Also a moderate caramel malt character but it it still overpowered by the hops.

The body is medium with a vague acidic texture.

Wonderful hoppy taste with additional flavors of biscuit malts and sweetness. But even though the hops are predominant they still do not result in a biting bitterness.

Beautiful copper red color with a tan head. Good lace. Sweet malt and fruity hops in both the nose and taste. Sugary, sweet liquid. Great balance of malt and hop and definitely not as hop forward as I expected but its awesome for the style. Smooth and easy drinking. I had high expectations for this beer and they were met. Delicious brew. Still good in May when I think it was released in March.

Bottled 3/17/13 Bought at Quality Liquors in Salem.

A - Dark amber color, was not expecting it to be so dark and my fears were later confirmed that this was a much more malt balanced beer than the title indicated. Nice bubbly head but it didn't last very long at all.

S - Best part of the beer. Fresh hop aroma, citrus-grapefruit and malt together great combination.

T - Has a nice hop taste up front, but there was a whole lot of malt taste in this beer considering how fresh I bought it, and because the beer didn't have much carbonation which lead to a light english style flavor.

M - Although the head was well formed, the beer was sort of flat and didn't carry the malt over as well. This could be a potentially delicious cask ale.

O - Nice ale to warm up with while the spring is coming on. Darker than most other spring style or session ales. Quality choice for the value in a six pack, especially if you're a fan of mayflowers other beers.
