Bottle. Clear gold pour, no head. Lots of honey sweetness, floral, vanilla flavoring, and a bit of spice. The body feels light, and the alcohol is well hidden. Ok.

375 ml clear glass bottle. Pours a clear brilliant gold with no head. This is a still mead. Pleasant aroma of honey, floral perfume, yeast, and vanilla. The flavor is more complicated. The honey has a strong floral component with a bit of earthiness that seems a bit sharp and just doesn’t mesh well with the vanilla. As the honey flavor subsides, the aftertaste is vanilla and caramel and is quite nice. I chilled the bottle initially, but I found I like this mead much better at room temperature; I enjoyed the last half of my glass more than the first half. This rating is at room temperature, not chilled.
