Mayflower Pale Ale, Mayflower Brewing Co., Plymouth, MA

You snooze, you lose, Knight of Saint Arnold, I am taking the vaunted 100th review spot. And the Mayflower Pale Ale is well deserving of this honor, because it epitomizes the essence of this crusade, which was to try and find as many good beers that are out there. Sure I can go into most liquor stores, pick up a six pack of Beer Crusade's lone Hall of Fame Beer, Dale's Pale Ale, but where is the fun in that? I want to find the next Hall of Fame beer.

Mayflower Pale Ale is good pale ale. It has light bitterness, good malt flavoring, solid citrusy tones and a decent 4.9% ABV. It's a good beer for pretty much anytime, not too heavy, not too light. It's a safe choice and safe choices like this get a 3.0.

I am sure you expected a Hall of Famer or a Zero for number 100, but honestly you just can't pick Hall of Famers by looking at them, if you could I am sure there'd be a lot less 2.0s on the blog.
