look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: Clear; almost the color of honey. Thin head; dissipated quickly, leaving a thin ring; no lacing.

S: Grassy; not over powering. A little earthy as it warmed.

T: Slight caramel up front. Got a little grass and earthiness ; medium bitter dry finish with a little malt sweetness in the background.

M: Medium-light body. Carbonation is a little high.

Drinkable, but not something I'd go out of my way for.

Mayflower Brewing Company - Mayflower Pale Ale, poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Look - Pours a clear amber with a small foamy head that retains some. Decent lacing.

Smell - Aroma is decidedly English hops with malt back behind, somewhat subdued.

Taste - Taste is akin to an American pilsner or lager like Bud, but the hops are more noticeable.

Mouthfeel - Light-bodied with moderate carbonation. Crisp and drinkable. Dry earthy bitter hops linger faintly.

Overall - This isn't my favorite pale ale, but I would recommend it as a hoppier alternative to a light American lager.
