3fourths (7977) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Smells more dusty and mushroom-y than the other two. Still has hair spray and schnapps herbal notes. Thin body with a watery texture. Fruity peach and earthy apricot accents on a basic honey foundation. Crisp and acidic and cider-like and simple.

KyotoLefty (6318) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 1, 2013
Little bottle from the Vilnius airport. Tangy citrus honey nose, lemon and orange. Sweet flavor of orange honey, dry earthy finish. Pale yellow color. Dry, light, grassy. Nice.

Ernest (6196) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Bottle. No head. Body is clear medium to dark yellow. Aroma is notes of honey and alcohol. Flavor is harshly sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic. Full body, syrupy texture, flat carbonation, heavily alcoholic. The worst of the three...it has the simplest aroma and is also the most syrupy-sweet and boozy. Probably the only notable thing about the Midus products is that they aren’t fusel...it’s all too common for meads to stink of gasoline or insecticide, but these smell like clean, straight vodka with honey added.

yngwie (13350) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle, at RBNAG-11. A clear, flat and light golden colored mead with aromas of heather, some roses, but as expected, most of all honey. Quite tasteful, with honey sweetness, as well as heather and roses. Full-bodied and warming, with a lasting honey and alcohol finish. Almost like a dessert wine this one. Nice. 111015

Excellent one, I had tried this years ago but was not on my list I don’t know why, but it was sweet alcoholic and very enjoyable all at the same time..

OleR (4801) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 26, 2011
Shared bottle at RBNAG-11. Bright pale gold. No head. Sweet and gentle honey aroma. Notes of flowers and mild spices. The honey flavor is delicate sweet with a cetain acidity to balance. Thick in the mouth, sparesly carbonated. A true sweetheart.

Shared bottle at RBNAG 11. Clear golden body with just a faint hint of a head. Aroma feels sweet and vinous with honey. Flavor is sweet, fruity, honey and alcohol. A bit boozy but still a really nice mead without too much raw honey flavor, feels somehow smooth.
