First "plain" mead I’ve had, (no fruit). Honey, slight mead boozyness. Slight citrus and orange peel. Very smooth. Decent, and probably as good as a traditional mead can be, but for me these work so much better with some fruit added.

Pour is pale yellow / slight orange. Aroma and flavor of sweet honey, sweet citrus, and semi-sweet lime. Finish is sweet sugar/honey with a touch of citrus. Very sweet, but good.

Great amount of sweetness that is not in the last cloying... Way too crushable to be safe

BOLTZ7555 (2999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle acquired via trade with punkrkr27! Soft, mild, and semi-sweet. Faint citrus, juicy tangerine, perhaps a little peach. Somewhat floral...again subtle. A little watery for the style but it is kind of nice to not have something that is terribly sticky and syrupy. Quite drinkable, although the 13% is sneaky. Not a favorite but interesting.

Bottle. Chardonnay color pour. Nose is honey, orange, grapes, and citrus zest. Taste is sweet with honey, faint cloves, orange, grapes, and maybe a very subtle hint of lemon. Light on the palate. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at James’ mead tasting. Pours a clear yellow. Sweet orange and honey, supple and smooth. Smooth and velvety, subtle orange and very nice honey. Tastes a good amount like orange blossom honey, very nice and delicate. Warm alcohol and soft orange.
