3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from State Line Liqours - pours orangy clear with no head, still. Aroma is floral with some sweet spiciness. Not sure what the hops are doing for it. Taste is sweet, hide its alcohol well, though there is a burn. Palate is syrupy. Overall, I like it, but it’s a bit expensive for what you get.

The mead part of this drink is excellent but the addition of hops really killed for me. As soon as I saw this and the fact that is the oldest surviving mead recipe I had such high hopes. Unfortunately these hopes were dashed away.
