Cool cans of Mead. The Green Collar is made with apple, honey, and vanilla, and has a lot of carbonation. Smells great, and tastes good too. Color is a combination of neon green and metallic yellow. Very clear.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quite a complex mead, or cyser, rather. Light yellow blonde color with no head or carbonation. Mellifluous, ambrosia bouquet with bursts of honey and a spring full of blossoming nectar-laden flowers, kissed by a vanilla breeze. The body is characterized by an interesting cream-soda like mouthfeel. Honeyed soda water with vanilla spritzes. Am I imagining a hint of barley. Interesting, satisfying, and seemingly nutrient-rich.

Can scores major points with me. Color is very pale and it has a wonderful fizz to it. Sparkling indeed. Aromas are wildflower honey and waxy comb. Hints of flowers as well.. Flavor is very nice yet mild. Comb honey with a nice light botanical flavor. Subtle cider notes and a touch of wood. Light and it drys out in the finish. Could slay this by the pool or at the beach on a sunny Florida afternoon.

Aroma is honey and mild/medium mustiness. The flavor is honey, cider characteristics, syrupy body and a warming alcohol and tart finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very pale straw coloured pour with a light carbonation. A little bit of soft honeyed flavour and a touch of light vanilla and some appley character. A little bit of soft sweetness and a touch of light custardy flavour. Moderately tart with a bit of light honeyed sweetness. It’s light but pretty nice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can. Clear, pale honey color with a soda pop head that sizzles away immediately. Smell is earthy honeycomb and light resin. Taste is honey , vanilla, apple cider and a light dry finish of resin and honeycomb. Light body is sweetish but the dry finish balances fairly well. Has medium carbonation that is almost too much and is more like a cider than mead, but still fairly drinkable.
