Draft to half-pint at Cumberland. Looks good; a still, foggy orange. Smells and tastes of mellow, balanced honey. Average on the palate. A solid no-frills mead.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Half pint pour at the brewery. Hazy golden-tan. Pretty mild and sugary. apple honey flavor. Pretty one dimensional, easy to drink. Some alcohol depth, but very cidery too. Sweet and enjoyable, but not so memorable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub in Louisville, KY. Pours a cloudy, brighter golden-orange colored body with a thin, creamy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing. Aroma is sweet honey with a few florals with a touch of lemon. Flavor is similar. Sweeter honey up front with a slight honey pale malt, a few lemon florals, and a slight cider tartness in the middle. Finishes sweet with a slight dryness and a light lemon floral. Medium-length aftertaste following a medium-full body and a light, spritzy carbonation. Overall, a decent mead. Sweet with lots of honey, some pale malts, and a light lemony floral. Not bad.

Cloudy straw gold pour with no carbonation. Sweet honey aroma and a hint of abv. Honey, light sweet, with an earthy finish. A bit thin and watery but very nice.

I really liked this one. very light and sweet honey flavor, a touch more alcohol flavor than i’d have liked, but overall a very pleasant refreshing experience.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was a very cool little treat. Nose was obviously of some light honey and taste was very much of honey and fusel alcohol, though there was also some nice beer-esque taste. The more I drank it, the more it grew on me, as I"m not a huge honey fan. Pale yellow, no head, a bit sparkling. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Cumberland brew pub. Yellow with a medium white head. Aroma of honey, taste of honey and mild lemon. Very smooth and easy to drink. A malty consistency that had a semi-puckery finish. This was the first time I’ve ever tried meade so I have no basis for comparison, but I thought this one was pretty solid. I wish the honey beers that hardly taste like honey would taste a bit more like this one.
