Very, very shocked at the high ratings. What was poured for me at my local pub could have easily been confused with nail polish remover. No notes of honey at all though there were an almost "perfumey" aroma to the pour.

Clear deep golden with no head. Yeah surprise surprise. Fruity, flowery, honey and alcohol in both aroma and flavor. Decent mead if you ask me.
[Bottle at Grosvold beer party 2014]

Picked it up for an evening with friends who are wine and beer drinkers - one who is closing in on a Ph.D. in history. The packaging (including the notation it came from a recipe dating back to around 1700) made it a fun an appealing treat to be passed around for tasting and discussion. I loved it - as did they.

Tasted at Gregs honey-themed beer gathering, thanks for sharing Vyvvy. It poured a slightly hazy amber colour, still, no foam nor lace. Strong aroma and flavour of honey, floral and earthy with smooth alcoholic heat, some black pepper spice presumably from hops. Medium body, well-rounded mouthfeel, no carbonation, with a sweet aftertaste. Seemed boozier than their Klapjster despite the slightly lower abv percentage. Definitely well-crafted and tasty, an awesome historical learning experience, but I still prefer a good beer.

ClubGonzo (4121) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle from duty free shop @ Billund Airport. Pours a clear deep amber body with no head. Nose is hibiscus, grass, pine and hints of honey, cellar mold and booze. Taste is alcohol, hibiscus, cellar mold and hints of pine and grass. Burning alcohol with slight smokiness in the finish. Slick body. Interesting stuff, though not quite tasty enough for a real high score.

Past bottles I would have rated WAY higher however this last bottle has a very nasty taste and I dont know if the batch was bad but it isnt close to previous versions. Hopefully it is a fluke and I will change my rating.

Draft at The Alchemist. Im new to meads, so bear with me. This was funky. Aroma was flat ginger ale, slightly floral. Taste was sweet...sticky, slightly carbonated, nice floral notes to the honey. I kept coming back to "flat ginger ale". Some spiciness I couldnt identify. I did get some citrusy notes from the hops but it was mostly a floral component.
