3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from duty free shop @ Billund Airport. Pours a clear deep amber body with no head. Nose is hibiscus, grass, pine and hints of honey, cellar mold and booze. Taste is alcohol, hibiscus, cellar mold and hints of pine and grass. Burning alcohol with slight smokiness in the finish. Slick body. Interesting stuff, though not quite tasty enough for a real high score.

Past bottles I would have rated WAY higher however this last bottle has a very nasty taste and I don’t know if the batch was bad but it isn’t close to previous versions. Hopefully it is a fluke and I will change my rating.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at The Alchemist. I’m new to meads, so bear with me.
This was funky. Aroma was flat ginger ale, slightly floral. Taste was sweet...sticky, slightly carbonated, nice floral notes to the honey. I kept coming back to "flat ginger ale". Some spiciness I couldn’t identify. I did get some citrusy notes from the hops but it was mostly a floral component.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 200ml, from the National Museum in Copenhagen. A slightly cloudy golden colour with no head. Aroma is fragrant and floral. An intensely sweet flavour with notes of elderflower and apple. Super-sweet honey evident in the finish. Alcohol is fairly evident with a little burn. Almost syrupy texture. Rather enjoyed this but it’s too sweet for regular drinking!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 70cl stoneware. A more or less clear one, amber in color, quite oily. No carbonation or head. The aroma is quite flowery, with heather honey and alcohol. Some earthy and citrusy hints. It’s sweet and honey tasting with some flower and berries. Way too warming I think, full bodied and velvety on the palate. Lasting finish with some berries and herbs and quite a lot of honey and sweetness, and of course alcohol. Wouldn’t mind this one with the alcohol subdued. As it is now it’s way, way to warming. 140331

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
I am obviously not a viking. This made me want to scrape my tongue with a razor blade. I’d be a very angry woman if I had to drink this all the time. The best part of this drink...the color. It is a beautiful golden color that tricks you into thinking this is the best thing that will ever touch your tongue. It fooled me. I’ll keep the bottle though. It looks like stone. Advertising got me again!

Oh my god. I really hoped for this to be good. Pours a clear amber with zero head. Aroma is all alcohol. I smell maybe a bit of honey, but not much. It burns in your mouth thanks to the 19% ABV. I’m not impressed. It’s a little oily on the tongue, but not my thing.
