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.

Theydon_Bois (7904) - 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 (2729) - 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.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2014
12 oz. can shared by caterwaul - thanks again, Alden! Pours a clear white wine color with no head. Aroma of rubber, honey, apple, grape, vanilla, and florals. The flavor is cleaner and simpler, keeping it to apple, vanilla, and honey. Light-bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth, vinous mouthfeel. I don’t believe I’ve had a canned mead before this. Interesting.

DrSilverworm (5899) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2014
12oz can, thanks to caterwaul for sharing. Clear kind of pale yellow color. No head or lace. Nice vanilla in the nose. It’s the dominant flavor here. Then some apple and honey. Moderate sweet taste. Medium body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Kind of a lightly creamy texture. More dry finish. Pretty refreshing and easy drinking, just not much to it (aside from vanilla + honey/apple). Very solid for what it is, though, and $8 for a 4pk is an awesome price.

BrettTaylor (451) - Radford, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Had from can camping, so no real idea of appearance. Aroma is some honey, very pils-like. Taste is almost champagne-like, without so much bready yeast notes.
