3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with Simon, Keith, Tom, Joe and Brie. Clearish pour, notes of floral peppermint, candy cigarettes, honey. Too boozey for 14% and too much perfume in this mead. Mouthfeel was very spicy and astringent. Not a fan of this one from B Nektar.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample from a 750ml bottle. Totally clear, nearly colorless body. Maybe the palest of yellows. No head or lace, but decent legs visible. Orange, honey, and prominent oak wood nose. Floral smells too. Sweet taste. Alcohol warmth, but no burn, but a light bite. Floral and oak flavor, with an orange blossom finish. Just had the B. Nektar Wildberry Pyment before this, much preferred that.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a still, transparent (almost perfectly clear) light gold. Smells of honey and light oranges. Tastes like it smells, only better, with great orange balance and a creamy finish. Tastes much richer than it smells.

Bottle sample. Poured clear golden color with good legs. Medium to heavy sweet citrus floral and alcohol aroma that lasted even after the liquid was gone. Medium to full body with a smooth texture. Medium to heavy balanced sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet alcohol warming finish of moderate to long duration. Complex solid mead.
