Sample at The Eccentric Cafe. Poured clear pale color with good legs and virtually no head. Moderate dark honey aroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture. Light to medium honey sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft drinkable mead.

Clear yellow pour with no head. Clover honey with hints of lavender, and apple cider. Not my favorite mean by a long shot.

This bottled brew from rbsg #42 poured a head of bubbles that were fully diminished and left behind a typically carbonated transparent yellow white colored body. The aroma was hot and sweet. . The mild flavor contained notes of sweetness and honey. An OK brew just nothing special.

Thanks to rayl101 for this one. Clear yellow pour with some rising bubbles and not much else. Honey and grain.... woot? Pretty mediocre. So many better meads out there than this one.

So excited to see the bottle listed on the list for the BF ’11 tasting. Sorely disappointed after tasting it. Aroma got my hopes up...abundant honey, spicy notes, floral qualities, and candied citrus. Inviting, actually. Flavor just didn’t match and was, in fact, quite chardonnay-forward. Winey character and very cider-like. Thin and uninviting. Pass.

pours a clear pale yellow color with a bit of fizz. small white cap. smell is of pilsner esters mixed with honey. some waxiness and champagne esters. flavor has a lot of yeast pilsner like esters. very weird it smells more like a beer than mead. though there is a noticeable waxy honey taste overall dry with an oily finish. mouthfeel is light with a touch of fizz. overall i don’t enjoy this very much. Bell’s, give kuhnhenn a call and find out how to make mead.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2011 Bottle thanks to Steve. Pours clear gold with a white fizzy head. Nose/taste of honey wax and pilsner malt. Medium body. Odd.

Bradbalk (9) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 16, 2012 does not count
Poured a very light sparkly white color, looks like a glass of Sprite. The smell is lightly sweet with a hint of honey and citrus. The flavors are odd, more wine than honey, with light sweet citrus flavors. Taste like a semi sweet riesling. Very carbonated mouthfeel. Didn’t really care for this, just isn’t very mead like.
