Tap at Bull and Bush. Clear brilliant golden with no head. Nice sticky nose with caramel covered Apple and sugary slightly-citric honey. Smooth yet full body with a nice hidden booze note that’s quiet until the lingering finish. Lovely honey sweetness and a little citrus tones with a pleasant caramel apple flavor and a touch of cinnamon and maybe clove. Really nice.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This mead pours a very clear light golden color with no head, and its aroma is heavy on the alcohol and light on the honey. The taste is very sweet and a bit boozy on the front end, but the alcohol flavor comes out more in the aftertaste. The palate fuses an oily texture, medium-light body, and a flat carbonation.

Hot vodka nose, only hints of honey. Clear amber, legs. Very sweet honey, very hot. Some walnut notes appear as it breathes. Some pear on the back end. Medium body, smooth. Cloying and alcohol presence is ridiculous.
