MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2005
Golden colour. Mild, sweet aroma. Sweet flavour, not much honey, but a little unpleasant bitterness. Watery finish.

leaparsons (8070) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2005
Bottle from "The Offie", Leicester. The great drinke of olde inglude. Bright yellow gold in colour and still. Aromas are sweet and honeyed with vanilla and as boozy as a spirit - well it is 14.5%. Flavours are similar to sweet German white wine with hints of honey and some spices. Quite syrupy on the palate yet comforting and warming. £8.95 for 1 litre but a worthwhile experience.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2004
Yellow colored. Sweet and alcoholic aroma with vanilla tones. Flavor is very sweet at first with some lemon sourness in the end. Some honey also. Quite thin. Not as good as most Danish meads in my opinion.

Ungstrup (29286) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2004
A pale yellow mead with no head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol and vanilla. The flavor has strong notes of cream, citrus, and honey. It is very sweet - too sweet for me - it feels sticky in the mouth. Thanks to Jez (Rauchbier) for bringing this one over the Northsea.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2004
Much more alcoholic and watery aroma than Danish mead. Less sweet than most Danish mead. Fruity and dry finish.

rauchbier (3607) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2004
Bottle, Melton Ross Farm Shop. Gold, no head or condition. Strange spicy sweet aroma that reminded me first of cheap Indian whiskey, with spirit quite obvious, then a hint of Rhineland wines. Manages to convince you it is full bodied and thin at the same time, with obvious honey notes, a slight fruitiness and spicy like a diluted drambuie. Finishes with a spirity spicy tingle of alcohol. Closer to wine than beer but worth trying. My first, but not last, mead.

rodgar (14) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JAN 2, 2004
This is not a beer, this is mead, an alcoholic wine made out of honey. I don't know what is doing here but I'll rate it anyway since I had taste it and is a very good honeywine. Actually it's one of the best mead on the market right now. Smooth and pleasent aroma but a strong flavor with a hint of spices and at the very end a little hint of honey. Real Ambrosia from Asgard!
