3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Clear golden mead with minimal legwork, because the super-thick coating simply refuses to weep (insert Chuck Norris joke here). The aroma is a blend of honey and methanol with hints of pear and green apple. Medium to full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and only a rumor of carbonation. Finishes very vinous and sweet with an unexpected kiss of acidity. Bottle courtesy of KickInChalice!

Bottle from BenC...thanks Ben! - Pours clear yellow with no head. Nose is sweet white grape, peanut butter (?!), and sugary honey. Taste is the same, sans peanut butter, with a real sugary white grape and a lightly boozy finish. Slick and thin bodied.
