The aroma is not good, it is strong in sulfites however the flavor and body is not bad. The vanilla comes through with some apple, and it’s hard to tell if there is any honey in there. Sadly this is the only drinkable product this company makes.

Lots of honey and apple. Nearly clear. Carbonated which I haven’t had too many of sparkling.

This looks okay. This starts out okay in that it isn’t too sweet and has some fruitiness. Unfortunately, by the end of this, it starts to get a heavy feeling, which is weird and shocking for a drink of so low alcohol. Not that good.

Can. Pale golden with a low, fizzy head. Fresh leafy hop and lemon nose. Hoppy, grassy flavor, some honey, a bit medicinal. Thin and fizzy. Strange stuff. Not my cup of tea.

Very pale yellow with a thin skim of white head. Aroma and taste have a cheesy tart chardonnay quality with sparkling cider components

Bottle shared at Chriso’s mid-week lasting 03/07/14. Sparking mead in a can, well i never. Thanks to Craig for this one i think. Green petrol coloured pour with a no head and some big bubbles. Aroma is honey, sweet, musty and a hint of lemon zing. Some staling. Flavour is thin, honey, sugary. No depth to the flavour. Palate is thin, watery, lightly carbonation.

12 ounce can. Pours a pale gold with a very small white head. Aroma of fruit and honey. Taste is apple, honey, floral, and vanilla. Interesting take.

12 ounce can. Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. A light apple and honey nose. The flavor is pepper, apples, sweet honey, a bit harsh at times. Not bad, Super cheap.

Theydon_Bois (9915) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Can at Chriso going Dutch tasting, 03/07/14. Clear washed out yellow, not far of translucent with moderate off white spotting. Nose is light floral, parma violets, piss stained. Taste comprises sweet sugary things, light citric, honey wash, more piss, Germaline. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet and floral curtain call. I’m no mead man but this is pretty medi-fukcing-ocre, sweet mess!

Frank (3015) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2014
This is kind of interesting stuff. It is a light, carbonated mead that seems to be being marketed as a gluten-free beer alternative. It is not anything spectacular but I suppose it serves it’s purpose reasonably well. It is clear w/ a slight ring of head. It’s nose is of red apples w/ a light floral note. It is a bit honey sweet and there is a good amount of vanilla that comes out when you taste it. It is actually better than I expected but that is a different thing than being good.

Can at Craig on heat tasting. Clear pale gold few white bubbles. Terrible aroma. Artificial. Rubbish.
