3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Capitol Cider, pours a clear blonde with no head. Nose is big on the treacle toffee-like honey. Flavour is big and decadent, with treacle toffee, alcohol and lots of honey. Fairly alcoholic but really well-balanced, with not too much sweetness. Excellent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Light pour, honey aroma, nothing special. Taste is, to me, pretty basic, but also on the sweet side, and more than I really prefer. Easy to drink, but just too sweet. I would opt for others this meadowy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle poured into a belgian tulip glass. Pours a clear, pale yellow. No carbonation. The aroma is dry, floral honey. I pick up a lot on the alcohol while it’s cold. As it warms though, it starts to become more honey like in character. It gets fairly sweet and that sweetness lingers on the tongue. I found myself enjoying this mead more toward the end of my glass than at the beginning. I’m not sure if that was the alcohol speaking, or if it is just better served closer to room temperature. Either way, i want to try some of their other meads despite my friend telling me that this one was the best of the one’s distributed in the area.
