Benzai (7302) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2011
Sampled @ Southampton Arms, London. First mead ever. Appearence?? Hmm, quite hard to descri-be. Something like clear but slightly odd-colored water I would say. Weird anyway. Smells like some spirit or liquor. Pretty sweet, decent taste, soft as well. Little bit like white martini. Soft mouthfeel, soft carbo, medium body. Pretty nice.

AshtonMcCobb (2367) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 27, 2011
75cl bottle. Pours a pale yellow colour. The nose is obviously honey. The taste is a bit more complex - honey, something earthy and maybe something pear-droppy. The palate is quite rich but since I’ve never had any other mead, I’m not sure what I’m measuring against. There is also good texture and it is fairly refreshing on the end. Overall, I enjoyed this but I don’t know how to compare it. Therefore, marks are mid-range to good

shrubber85 (7341) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Bottle. Honey, barnyard/hay, and alcohol aroma. Very pale yellow color. Sweet honey flavor with a barnyard/hay finish, Mild alcohol burn in the aftertaste. Nice body. Very nice mead.
