Tasted at Gregs honey-themed beer gathering, thanks for sharing Vyvvy. It poured a slightly hazy amber colour, still, no foam nor lace. Strong aroma and flavour of honey, floral and earthy with smooth alcoholic heat, some black pepper spice presumably from hops. Medium body, well-rounded mouthfeel, no carbonation, with a sweet aftertaste. Seemed boozier than their Klapjster despite the slightly lower abv percentage. Definitely well-crafted and tasty, an awesome historical learning experience, but I still prefer a good beer.

ClubGonzo (3936) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2014
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 dont know if the batch was bad but it isnt close to previous versions. Hopefully it is a fluke and I will change my rating.

Draft at The Alchemist. Im 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 couldnt identify. I did get some citrusy notes from the hops but it was mostly a floral component.

Draft at crunchy's. Amber with no head. Lots of sweet cinnamon. Really sweet and booze is well hidden.

dj (521) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2014
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 its too sweet for regular drinking!

yngwie (13198) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2014
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. Its 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. Wouldnt mind this one with the alcohol subdued. As it is now its way, way to warming. 140331

I am obviously not a viking. This made me want to scrape my tongue with a razor blade. Id 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. Ill keep the bottle though. It looks like stone. Advertising got me again!
