English: The oldest known recipe for mead to be written down in the Nordic countries was in 1520 by the Archbishop Olaus Magnus. The recipe comprised of water, honey, hops and brewers yeast, and concludes, that "on the eight day - or earlier in emergencies - the mead may be drunk, but the longer it is left, the purer, better and healthier it will be." Our products are brewed based on a recipe from about year 1700, and the ingredients are pure and 100 pct. natural - guaranteed free from additives of any kind. Honey is the major and most important item in the recipe.

degbert (1222) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold-yellow. Nose is honey, herbs, hops, and a touch of baking ginger. Sweet and spicy on the tongue, with an overtone of herbaceous hops. Finish is long and sweet with a bitter edge. Very nice; the hops cuts the sweetness and the ginger adds a contrasting heat.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - APR 19, 2014
Aromas of honey and ginger combine with floral and herbal notes comprise the nose. Pours a pale, slightly hazy straw hue. The taste is pleasingly sweet, but is balanced with the ginger and hop flavors. Medium-full body and smooth carbonation. Smooth, round mouthfeel. Overall, an extremely well crafted and enjoyable mead.

Brief write-up. I dont have much experience on meads, but this one was damn good. Theres a slight burn, but nothing to suggest its 19%. Having said that, its insanely sweet, with tons of honey flavor. A touch of palate burn makes itself known, as well.
