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.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2012 À la pompe au pub: Difficile de juger. C’est clairement un hydromel puissant avec une emprise alcoolisé à ne pas sous-estimé. Liquide clair et moyennement sucré très chaud et croustillant.

Faint honey notes on the nose. Pale yellow with minimal head. Sweet honey with hidden notes of some citrus. Some alcohol burn on the finish and faint bitterness to somewhat balance. First mead experience....o.k.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap: The aroma consists of light-moderate honey, apple, and faint white wine. It’s a dull white-gold with no head but some rising bubbles. The flavor starts with a which dose of honey and light apple. The finish has some white wine and champagne notes. It’s medium bodied with lightly spritzy carbonation. Overall, light bodied and more carbonation than I’m used to it a Mead...still pretty tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Eccentric. Body is gold and aromas are faint and sweet. A little bit of honey, pear and white grape juice. Flavor is similar, but the fruit really pops and takes over the plot. Finish is sweet and fruity.
