3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft - Woody, vanilla and some booze. Pale straw. Light Woody sweetness with a Woody finish. The wood takes away from the delicacy of the mead here.

Very pale yellow color out of the bottle and still. Big honey nose with lots of wood. Rich honey flavor with raw oak and earthy tones. Thick, syrupy mouthfeel. Nice straight up mead.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster on tap at the meadery. Totally clear, pale slightly yellow color. More of a tart nose on this one, slight green apple skin. Some caramel. Moderate sweet, light bit of tart, little bit of alcohol but it works well at 13% for sipping on. Some light floral notes. Medium to bigger body. Smooth texture. Little to no carbonation. Good, lightly dry finish. Nice stuff, like the rest of the Brothers Drake meads, very well-done... Though this seems to have a little bit more noticeable sweet ones than the others I’ve tried so far

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster at the meadery. Looks decent; a still very light gold. Smells of mild honey and buttery oak. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Not bad; could be a bit more robust though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On nitro at 1808 in Columbus. Pours a clear mostly still yellow. Nose is some light sweet honey with big wood, vanilla, and whiskey notes. There is a nice whiskey presence that does not overpower yet does not resign itself to wallflowerdom. Flavor hits with sweet honey first then some whiskey, oak, vanilla, and mild booze. Light in body and very nice overall.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Boyle sample at the meadery. Pours a pale still yellow. Aroma has a burnt caramel and charred oak thing going on. Definitely dry. I get a lot of oak throughout the aroma and taste and lingers on the tongue for a long time.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the tasting room. This Mead pours a crystal clear yellow color with no head and decent legs. Aroma of honey and oak. Full-bodied with flavors of oak, molasses and hints of fruit. The finish is sweet honey with an oaky aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
