3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample at J.U.G.S. Light, bubbly gold, with a minimal, white head. The aroma is light wheat, honey, lavender, and light caramel. The flavor is very sweet. Surprisingly light body, high carbonation, and lightly acidic. Overall, this is a delicious, champagne-like beer.

Lightly hazy golden yellow color with almost no lacing. Honey and apricot in the aroma. Crisp up front but a creamy mid palette. Lingering honey finish with just a slight burn.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a luscious clear golden - no head, but this is mead. Honey aroma has subtle spice hints. Flavor is - oooooooooh, very sweet and yet not cloying, downright scrumptious! Not complex, but very tasty and accompanied by a nip of alcohol. Smooth texture is syrupy and firm. Of all the mead I’ve tried, this is the best.

On tap. Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head that starts and remains at the edges. Aroma has sweet honey with a hint of apple/sweet light fruit backed by a bit of champagne dryness. Flavor begins sweet with honey and a hint of light sweet fruit but the finish adds a dry champagne note.

32oz Growler from Crafty Draught, $15. Golden yellow hue. Light fizz. Aroma of honey and alcohol, some herbal notes. Taste of sweet honey, even some pale malts. A good amount of burn, as the ABV is kinda high. Impressive local honey wine, proud to have a Georgia Meadry. Finishes like a mead, smooth, notes of fermented honey. Overall, tastes of a Braggot.
