3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this on tap a few different times at Bells. Really crisp mead, not super sticky like you would think. Very little alcohol, and thin on the tongue. Straight forward flavor, but a really solid beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the eccentric cafe. First mead. a little odd as the aroma is almost nonexistent. Theres a mildly detectable honey and malt combo there with a cloudy coppery/red pour. Flavor is that of honey, bread and a funky metallic touch in there but the 9% is well hidden. Rather dry, with good carbonation.
Different. Not sure what the Vikings saw in this.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My girlfriend ordered this at the cafe and I ended up finishing it. Golden pour, looks and smells like honey. Very sweet flavor with a bit of dryness. Finish is herbal. Too sweet for my taste, but also the first mead Ive ever had.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
draft at the brewpub - Pours clear yellow and has a mild honey aroma. It has a very sweet honey flavor that easily buries the alcohol. There’s a slight flowery accent. Enjoyable though more complexity and somewhat toned down sweetness might be better.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ the Eccentric Cafe. Their first mead, and they still haven’t given it a formal naming. Pours a touch hazy, golden color; headless. Loads of honey and sweetness, floral notes, and minerals in the aroma; hidden alcohol, and a touch of mintiness. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: lightly oily, dense honey notes, floral and light herbal / mineral (often minty) notes; very soft edges on this, well-handled; solid, generous, enjoyable mead from Bells. Lengthy finish: honeyed sweetness, sugar, and herbal notes; nicely restrained sweetness at the far end.
