Crystalline amber color, still. Faintly sweet honey aromatics. Sweet honey and clover/floral flavors at first, somewhat dry in the finish. Simple and not especially complex. It was pretty good, an everyday sort of light drinker to share with a meal.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, pours a dark caramel colour with a tiny white bubbly head. Aroma brings out dark honey, toasted caramel, and bready notes. Flavour brings out toasted caramel, dark honey, and some earthiness. Fairly watery given the high ABV, but it works well. Not the deepest mead, but the flavours are very pleasant. Enjoyable stuff.
