3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pale clear golden body, nice clarity and color.
Aroma: The aroma is faint, but smells sweet of hints of oranges and honey. Nice aroma, I’m glad it’s not overly pungent.
Taste: The flavor is sweet with honey and hints of citrus. After reading the description and seeing it’s aged on oak, I guess I can sort of pick of hints of caramel and vanilla, but I’m not sure I would have found it without knowing. I do get a hint of spice and oak, but it’s very subtle. The finish has some heat and lingering sweetness that sort of reminds me of PlayDoh.
Palate: Full-bodied, sort of juice like.
Overall: I enjoy this mead a lot, it’s what I’d give to someone if they’d never had mead. I find it pleasant, soft and easy to enjoy. Well done.
