3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma has honey and a little apple. Flavor is mild and smooth. A little drying alcohol in the finish, and a surprisingly creamy mouthfeel. Not bad, but not great either.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a pale gold with no head. This is a still mead. The aroma is lovely with nice clean sweet honey and perhaps a few floral notes. The flavor is much more watered down and the flavor is short-lived on the palate. Lightly sweet as the name suggests.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden a shade lighter than the dry mead. Aromas of honey and wax. Flavor is very watery. Honey and water that is about it. Mildly sweet but overall fairly tasteless.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taste from a 750 ml bottle at the meadery. Looks just like the Dry Mead, with a pale golden hue and legs, no head. Aroma of honey, white wine, and oak. Flavor of honey, white wine, apples, oak, and faint floral notes. Medium-bodied, with a smooth, sweet mouthfeel and no carbonation. Adds a little complexity and balance to the Dry Mead base.
