2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
350ml bottle given as a gift from the island - Amber body, no head. I think it is supposed to be like this. Nose is a strong mix of grape juice and honey, with a large hit of alcohol. Taste is syrupy, like a sweet wine, with a warm finish. First time I’ve had mead, and probably my last. A very average drink that no doubt has its fan-base.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, still...almost colorless...just slightly yellowed.
Alcohol and light honey and lemon aroma....comes across a little nail-polishy.
Taste is sweet with a slight alcohol warmth....
Mild honey, ginger flavor.
Surprisingly gentle considering the ABV and the initial whiff of alcohol.
Mild, very good.

Pale blond color. The aroma is a bit plastic. Sweet, without excess; some honey flavor. Drinkable, but simple.

I had this on the Holy Island, and while walking around the village I took a peek or two around the back. Small operation. The problem is, it’s not really mead--they don’t use their own honey, and they’re not really fermenting honey anyway. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that it isn’t very good. Sharp, sickly, artificial and really unpleasant. Too bad, because otherwise it’s a nice story (and the Holy Island remains a magical place).

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Snifter at St Aidens Winery, Holy Island, Northumberland. Very pale yellow, no head. More like a sweet wine, honeyed, quite rich, sharp alcohol note and a salty, calcium hint. Not for me.
