Honey nose, with hints of pear and tea. Sparkling amber. Light body, tangy, astringent. Apple is dominant, little honey character actually. Finishes with tea. Drinks like a cider.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pour. Clear slightly dark amber in color with no head. Tea, citrus and honey in the nose. Slightly sweet taste rapidly gives way to a complex earthy, slightly tannic tea then lemon and a dry finish. Really well done.
Sandy: I want you to kill every gopher on the course!
Carl Spackler: Check me if I’m wrong Sandy, but if I kill all the golfers, they’re gonna lock me up and throw away the key...
Sandy: Gophers, ya great git! The gophers! The little brown furry rodents!
Carl Spackler: We can do that; we don’t even have to have a reason.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, pours clearish gold with super thin ring of head, no lacing. Typical for the style. Smells and tastes like an Arnold Palmer with some herbal black tea and honey notes. Extremely easy drinking mead at the 6% alcohol. If you like iced tea or especially iced tea and lemonade mixed than this mead is for you. Cheers.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours slightly cloudy and gold with no head. Aroma is different, almost like a lemon cookie with honey - something I can’t put my finger on. Taste is sweet lemony tea with honey really coming in for the mid and the finish. Interesting and good.

Tastes like strong black tea, lemon, and honey. Not bad, but nothing exceptional. Moderately sweet, but not overly so.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a yellow golden color with a trace of gaseous bubbles rising to the top. Aromas are earthy tea, sweet honey, straw and some lemon zest. The palate is round and flavorful with great integration of tea and lemon flavors that are heightened by a nice sweet mead backbone. Really well balanced and extremely chuggable ! Gonna put a few of these away for some warm days of summer.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Half liter bottle from Beer Run. I’m opening this in honor of Harold Ramis, who passed away this morning. R.I.P. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thin ring of head. Aroma of honey, tea, lemon. The taste is sharp lemon, honey and bitter tea in the finish. Thin-medium bodied, a little harsh in the taste.
