COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first dessert mead from Medovina, and indeed Medovina's first commercial mead. It predates Sweet Melissa and was made at 3% residual honey instead of Sweet Melissa's 9%.

Clear light gold. Aroma of warm alcohol esters, sweet honey tones, and some cough medicine. Taste is a little too boozy and medicinal, but there is some honey tones to bring an eccentric flavor to it all. Just too alcoholic.

Ernest (6260) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 22, 2006
July 2003 bottling. No head (still). Body is hazy light yellow. Aroma is notes of honey, flowers, alcohol (some isopropyl). Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, flat carbonation, lightly astringent, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Higher alcohol is a little problematic for the aroma, but then this bottling is one of the first of Marks bottled meads, so its understandable. The flowery honey aroma is quite strong, and the taste is quite clean, so its still quite enjoyable...its just that the isopropyl-ish note in the nose gives one caution about drinking too much. That his first mead is better than most meaderys products is quite telling on just how far above the bar Marks current products are.
