3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Eigentlich nicht schlecht, wenn auch recht klassisch mit einem süßsauren Abgang und nur wenig Honig im Hintergrund. Wenig Aroma, wenig Frische, dafür eine leichte Schärfe zum Schluss. Ganz nett.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ First Official Randers Tasting. Pours clear, oily amber with no head at all. Clear aroma of honey, with notes of flowers. Sweetish flavour, with some winey notes. Tastes like a regular German honey wine. Not a disgrace to the grand Polish tradition of mead production, but not light years away from it, either.
