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 don’t really get the pepper. It’s good for a mead, but I don’t think I’m gonna come back to it.

Süßlicher Antrunk, milde Honignoten, in dem hintergründig leichte Pfeffernoten erkennbar sind. Stärker ist aber die konstante Süße, süffig, Noten vom Apfel. Gut! 7/11/9/10/11/9

2014.08.08 - B. Nektar Necromangocon - from bottle. Not going to do a breakdown review but does what it says on the bottle. It’s mango-y and pepper-y. It’s an interesting flavor combo and works pretty well. A tad too heavy on the pepper for my palate but not bad.

Pale golden pour. Aromas of mango, honey. And a touch of white pepper. Flavor is mango and honey all the way. Finish is sweet with just a pinch of white pepper. Slight pepper spice lingers on the palate after you take a sip. Very interesting. Another solid mead from B. Nektar.

On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014. Crystal clear looks on this, almost like a pale cider in the glass. No head what so ever. Smells like sugar syrup added some honey and lots of wood juiced from birch wood. Quite summery aroma and there’s also some apples. Nice enough really. Strange tasting. As good as flat with a thin oily mouthfeel. Like drinking wood juices also. Some floral spices, green grass, lemons and apple juice. Strange but interesting. 02.05.2014

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.
