Have had a couple of beers from this company before, but this is the first official review.

A: Beer pours a deep, dark amber color with not much of a head on it, thins out pretty fast but leaves some bubbles on the top.

S: Initial aroma is of grassy, floral notes and hops. Not too much else but the hops definitely dominate the smell.

T: Not much bite, do get more of a pine flavor as opposed to citrus or grapefruit. Hop flavor is sweet and satisfying and finishes with a dry yeast.

M: Very light and drinkable, not over powering in any aspect. Carbonation definitely brings out the hop flavor.

O: Very delicious, but also very tame hop type beer. Have had their IPA and that was pretty strong, dont think thats what they were going for here. Kind of reminds me of what Samuel Adams did with their Alpine Spring.

Pleasant tangerine amber color.
Half finger of off white head, quick to fade.

Pleasant ripe pine nose with some floral hoppiness.

Taste is also lots of pine, dry hop with subtle floral notes. Maybe a hint of orange citrus. Bigger malt than I would have expected. Really rich and full flavored.

Feel is dry but robust. Medium bodied. Lingering dry hop on the finish.

Overall, seems to fit the bill well, but not a spectacular option. Well balanced, but nothing super complex. Just very likeable and straightforward. Makes a good pairing for the spring thaw while the sun goes down. Was hoping for a bit more hop though given the name. Great to have Mayflower available in CT now though.

Having been unimpressed with some of Mayflower's other beers, I was taken aback by this fresh springtime treat. Great little body and light, refreshing texture and finish. Beautiful blend of grassy and floral aromas and flavors. Soft-spoken medium roasted/amber malt makes way for the hops to herald the season. I'll be drinking this for a few weeks. :)
