2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sample (from bag in box?) at Reading Beer Festival on 28 April 2011. Big honey and nougat throughout. Described as "slightly drier" but it seemed pretty sickly sweet to me. Which, I guess, highlights my problem with most of the sweet meads - just not my thing. Slight "plastic" edge to the aroma too.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from wine stand next to the Utobeer stand in Borough Market, London. Pours a clear golden body. Nose is sweet syrupy tones, alcohol, dark honey, floral perfumy notes and hints of caramel sauce, rose water and beeswax. Taste is sweet syrup up front, then caramel, alcohol, forest honey, beeswax and floral hints of rose water, perfume and nuts. Sweet and strong with loads of boozy floral tones, this is a traditional mead all right, but a bit too flowery and sharp around the edges for what I’m usually looking for in such versions. Decent enough though.

750ml ; This juice has a high boost @ 14 % going for it and is pretty good ; The nose on this jet-fuel is honeycomb , sugar , flowers , spice ,syrup perfume ; Flat and golden liquid but shit it looks gloopy and fat ; Dranks way, way rich , cloying , waxy and sickly but its pretty pleasant - soothingly creamy . Honey and floral syrup . ! I was skeptical about this for some reason and that is my nature but this Mead is a pretty smooth thang !

Deep amber gold colour. Very floral perfumed aroma, violet and hyacinth, and soapy. Full and rich mouthfeel. Rich honeyed flavour. Again the floral element comes through with Parma violets, plus a touch of aniseed spice. Full flavoured finish. Bottle from Beers of Europe, Setchey, Norfolk.

375ml bottle. Pours a flat gold with no head. Aroma is honey, spice and white wine-esque alcohol notes. Taste is sweet honey to start. Honey and white wine in the finish. A bit sticky and spicy. Warming alcohol in the aftertaste. Not a fan of the white wine similarities.

Blond color. The aroma is quite pungent; there is honey, very floral, lightly soapy, and with plastic too. Sweet honey flavor, even if the body is quite lean, with a citrus acidity that balances the sweetness well; the alcohol warmth is clearly perceived (maybe too much); the final is citrusy and a bit dry. Good but not complex.
