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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
