First "plain" mead Iíve had, (no fruit). Honey, slight mead boozyness. Slight citrus and orange peel. Very smooth. Decent, and probably as good as a traditional mead can be, but for me these work so much better with some fruit added.

Great amount of sweetness that is not in the last cloying... Way too crushable to be safe

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle acquired via trade with punkrkr27! Soft, mild, and semi-sweet. Faint citrus, juicy tangerine, perhaps a little peach. Somewhat floral...again subtle. A little watery for the style but it is kind of nice to not have something that is terribly sticky and syrupy. Quite drinkable, although the 13% is sneaky. Not a favorite but interesting.
