COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mead is an alcoholic beverage made by fermenting honey. We use 360 pounds clover honey, a small amount of pale malt and our strong ale yeast to make Brother Adam's. It's bright gold, with a wonderful floral aroma and a fruity (apple & banana) honey flavor.

I am not sure how to rate mead, as I don’t have much of a control to compare against. So I suppose that this is as good/bad as any. I enjoyed it enough but did not want another one. You can taste the honey though.

Light orange color. Small white head. Spiced honey, wheat, cinnamon. Light body but alcoholic, with some wine-like floral flavors... grapes, soapy roses... oranges and some honey in there as well, as it should be. Interesting, but weird.

Solid yellow color, small head. Faint sour aroma. Taste is sweet, with pronounced alcohol that really creeps in later in the finish. Honey taste is still evident. Strange stuff.

Wow - my first Mead - finally. This had a glowing golden color, very small ocassional bubbles rising; no head and clear lacing. Aroma was fantastic - honey, clove, herbal, floral. I was expecting a thick palate, but this was more like a wine viscosity - smooth and even a little oily. Very fruity tasting - honey sweetness and summer fruits with a lingering light fruity ending. Makes me anxious to try more mead!
