COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mead is considered to be the first alcoholic federate produced by mankind. Mead was so common in the year 1015 a fire in the German city of Meisen was extinguished with honey wine because of o shortage of water. Mead making underwent a decline in the 1700s but today is regaining popularity. Wildflower honey for the production of our authentic Golden Drop Mead. Has been collected by our bees in the lush meadows of beautiful Prince Edward Island.

Kinz (3362) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2014

HogTownHarry (6129) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2012
February 11, 2012 - with JoeMcPhee, blankboy, jercraigs & mabel. Clear 750ml bottle c/o j&m. Very pale gold, no head, pretty much no legs either - uhmmm ... okay? - damned if I know what a good mead looks like. Smells of alcohol, honey and actual floral bitterness - not bad! Taste is ... mild; more like a light white wine with some honey and grassiness added. Light body, not very syrupy, weak carbonation, some tartness in the quick finish - ehhh.

Bottle [750ml] shared with HogTownHarry, JoeMcPhee, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. Feb. 11. Pours a clear, very pale yellow with no head. Aroma of honey, alcohol and flowers. Somewhat watery flavour of honey and floral notes. Light to average bodied. Just O.K., too watery.

[4299-20120211] 750mL bottle. Floral honeyed petrol aroma reminds me of bees throwing up. Clear, pale yellow body with no head. Honey sweet floral flavour. Light-medium body is fairly boozy. Not pleasant. (3/2/5/3/10-) 2.3

jercraigs (8060) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 29, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2012 2012-02-11. Pale yellow body, headless. 2+ Sweet aroma, very floral honey character. Flavour is similar, sweet, very floral honey character. 6+ Smooth average to light bodied palate, no carbonation. Decent, but the floral character is not to my taste. 2010 Vintage bottle purchased from PEI Liquor Store August 2011
