danlo (897) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2013
75cl bottle. Clear orange amber colour, some initial bubbles that quickly disappear leaving no head and deep honey aroma, herby, with liquorice & earthy alcohol. Honey flavour, some sweetness, plus flowery, spice & grassy notes. Syrupy mouthfeel, medium to full bodied, low carbonation, warming finish. Very drinkable.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 5, 2012
75cl bottle from Drink Monger. Pours a dark golden colour with an aroma of honey, alcohol and yeast. Similar flavours and just a little sweet. A lovely slick, oily mouth-feel with lingering sweet honey and alcohol. Certainly one of the better meads I’ve had.

weaselkenievil (1094) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2012
Bottle shared at 4:20, Rome, cheers Alex! Being the first mead I’ve ever had, I have little to compare this against and no real idea whether this is a good one or not. Anyway, who cares what anyone says about it but me? I’m the guy drinking it. Strong and sweet dusty aroma dominated by honey. Sweet honey flavour, some heather, touch of sourness. Surprisingly easy to drink once you work your way down the bottle. Nobody else seems to be drinking this so me being the graveyard of unwanted drinks,best finish this.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2011
Bottle at 4:20. Clear, light and bright gold. Light booze aroma, some fruits and honey. Sweet, but not the sweetest mead I’ve had - which is nice. Full bodied and warming. Sugar, honey and mild alcohol on the finish. Nice.

Bottle 75 cl. RBESG Rome 2010. Clear deep golden. Very sweet honey in the nose. Very full body, sticky sweet honey with only a whiff of spices. A very sweet and solid Mead if a little unrefined and one-dimensional. 060610
