125ml glass at the 2016 Cambridge Beer Festival. Golden and clear. Sticky, sweet buttery scent. Not getting the promised spices, maybe a bit of clove but the scent is strong, honeyed and inviting. Sweet and slightly spiced without being sickly. Thick, sticky, gooey body. Long sexy finish. As mead should be.

Koelschtrinker (17292) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 28, 2015
Starker Honig Antrunk, der durch die erkennbaren Gewürze eher noch verstärkt wird. Rund süffig, langer Nachgeschmack, in dem der Honig erheblich länger als die Gewürze hält. Gut! 9/12/12/12/9/12

Bottle at Reading BF 2014. Clear gold no head. Spicy hazelnut nougat aroma. Haven’t had a mead in ages. It’s lovely. Love the cinnamon mixed with the hazelnut praline. Delicious. God I love mead. It’s sweet and decent. Slightly sour from the spice too. Wow
