COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Many years ago, a mysterious book was discovered by a group of friends in a Ferndale, MI basement. A translation of its contents revealed the recipe for an ancient beverage using mango juice, honey, and black pepper. What they didnít realize was that creating the beverage had dire consequences. Stricken by fear after its compleation, the friends tried to contain the terrifying forces into this very bottle. Once opened, however, no one can say for sure if it can be conquered. Defend your soul or join us...

Pours a clear yellow, no head or carbonation really, looks like white wine. Aroma of floral fruity perfumes. Taste follows, not too sweet, a hint of mango, but I donít really get the pepper. Itís good for a mead, but I donít think Iím gonna come back to it.

Pale gold pour. The aroma and flavor are very nice. I get some strong mango and white pepper notes, as well as some honey and a hint of alcohol. Nice mead.

Scopey (6140) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Keg at CASK. It pours very pale gold. The nose is sweetish, peppery, dried mango, light florals, melon, honeysuckle and honey. The taste is sweet, light fruity tang, apple, melon, pear, mango and honey with a dry finish. Light-medium body, light carbonation and slightly oily mouth-feel. Quite subtle and quaffable. Pretty tasty.

jjsint (627) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Cask at CASK Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico. Very light yellow. Aroma is overwhelmingly black pepper, with a bit of slightly overripe papaya. Taste is a simple sweet/sour, with pepper spiciness dominating the finish and aftertaste. Incredibly odd. But tasty.

Keg at Cask P&K. Totally still and clear, just a touch of yellow / green colour under the dim lights here, no head. Aroma is lime, plughole. Body is medium, pretty spritzy. Taste is very sweet. Bubblegum, cherry cola bottle sweets, cheap white wine or Lambrini. Not getting much mango. A sugar loverís dream.

Keg at cask pub and kitchen 5th birthday. Aroma is big black peppercorn. Rustic honey. Flavour is sweet lightly spicy peppercorn, and slight green apple. Palate is light sweet with moderate carbonation. Lingering spices and fruit. These mini meads are a bit lacking.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Bottled. Poured clear, straw golden with just a small amount of rising carbonation. The aroma picked up lots of mango upfront, and that paired well with semi-sweet honey.. floral notes and a fresh hit of black pepper on the back of the nose.. very nice. The flavor found sweet mango and clover honey at the core with more acidic mango, black pepper, and dry oak around.. moderately tart on the finish, mostly carrying through mango and oak. Light-medium bodied with very low carbonation.. dry, well-balanced, and engaging.
