2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very sweet! First time trying mead. Thought the taste would be closer to beer but rather it’s closer to port wine. Not bad but a bit too sweet for me. Bought it in Warszawa airport.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Deep amber mead with no head. Alcohol and honey aroma. Sweet, honey flavour, feels almost like drinking sugar and honey. I think this one would be nice if you heat it up and drink in a cold winter day :-)
