3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
First "plain" mead I’ve 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.

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.
