fiulijn (15360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2010
Bottle, in Warsaw
Golden color. Honey aroma, deep, lightly floreal. Sweet flavor, sugary, not too much honey presence. It only has a medium body strength, the alcohol has a moderate bite. Pleasant, but not special.

FatPhil (9618) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 3, 2009
250ml bottle (fancy drink ship in Warsaw)
A pale gold nectar. Very mellow, but spicily woody, honey aroma. Smooth and silky in the mouth. Some light fruity retronasals - maybe apple and a touch of cinnamon. Alas a tiny hint of plastic too, but I think that’s some heavy organics from the barrels. Almost a slight burntness to some of the sips. A touch sweet, but utterly delicious, and with no hint of the alcohol apart from a pleasant warming.

zvikar (3624) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - MAY 30, 2009
25cl bottle, thanks Naam, nice bronze color with no head, aroma is very alcoholic with honey sweetness, apples and wild odor like barnyard, spices like mint and jasmine overall it is nice, flavor of honey and barnyard some nice acidity, as some qualities of wine. Body is medium and complexity of flavors is medium as well. As my first mead I would say this one is OK.

Clear oily golden color, no head. Sweet, fruity, honey scent. Sweet, raissin taste. Rather short aftertaste, sweet at first, not for long. Smooth mouthfeel, low bitterness.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2008
(Bottled) Clear honey-golden with no head. Neutral, honeyish aroma with hint of oak and alcohol. Sweet, not very honeyish, wineous flavor. Not very complex. Medium to full body, quite sugary, no carbonation. Reasonably drinkable, but quite straightforward and still too sweet.
