Sample from a 75 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu.
Pours clear golden color with no head. Very herbal aroma, honey, sweet sugary notes as well as some lemon. Sweet fruits and honey on the flavor, toffee, not as herbal as the aroma is. Alcohol is fairly well hidden, mild burn on the finish. A good mead but not as intense as I hoped.
