MicroGrog (303) - FT: Stale Polotmavř in Queens, New York, USA - DEC 4, 2012
3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cobalt blue 375ml bottle from Astor Wines. Baby Duvel tulip.
Gold, light amber color. Clear, with considerable bits of sediment floating about.
Smell is sweet, sharp, nutty, maple-y, & bitter. Mild all-spice & cinnamon heat.
Taste is very sweet, with a back splash of lime acidity. A touch of caramelization. No real obvious hints at anything very squash-like. Mellow zest of powdered spice. I feel a bit of a sulfite headache coming on.
A bit slick, but an otherwise average body for an American mead.
