3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear and very pale yellow coloured. A strong and syrupy example that manages to reach a minimal balance through a weird herbal quality. Tart and flowery and obviously very alcoholic, it never deploys the grace of top meads.
