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.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This bottled Mead from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of frothy medium sized clear colored bubbles that were very quickly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated transparent dark orange colored body and a oily lacing. The mild aroma was vinous mild fruit and honey. The vinous mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a strong vinous aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of vinous honey and fruity. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
