Pours a flat golden. Aromas of nice sweet apple, honey, and notes of cinnamon. Flavors are boozy bourbon, sweet sweet sweet honey and apple.. Definitely get the apple pie thing.. Vanilla gets lost in all the sweetness. Still a solid flavorful mead.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Churchkey. Poured a very light, translucent, almost white-colored yellow with no head at all - I saw a few soapy bubbles, but they were almost instantly gone. Aroma is not entirely apple pie, but apples, some residual pie notes. Flavor is some light apple, cinnamon, booze, sweetness. Even with all that booze, it’s still pretty mellow.

Super still dry hay pour. Aroma is pie dough, cinnamon, tart Granny Smith’s, bourbon, oak, and vanilla. Flavor is similar but something just isn’t as inviting. Alcohol warmth. Wishing there was some brown sugar, caramel, or toffee coming through...still a decent mead.

Bottle at Chriso’s Christmas tasting, London. Many thanks to Leighton for this one! It pours a slightly hazy very pale straw color with no head to speak of. Aroma is very sweet with loads of cooked apples a tiny bit of plastic and light booze. Taste is similarly very sweet with baked apples, candy sugar and caramel. Medium palate, sticky, flat. Overall, very good
