3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, courtesy of a kindly gentleman in a location remote of my library.
Pours a pale golden color, perfectly still.
The aroma is sweet and indeed has a good bit of honey therein but it also has a light bit of stone fruit and mango with a light bit of white grape and mustiness.
The flavor just pops with a huge honey and melon character that gives way to a mild waxiness, a bit of earthiness, and a lovely white grape and light alcohol spiciness.
a very good example of an unadulterated honey mead.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from The Beer Junction, Seattle; synthetic cork
Measured Final Gravity: 1016
Hazy dark blond color. To be frank, I had German supermarket meads at 3€ for 750ml that were as good as this one; too much honey and wax. Moderate sweetness, warming alcohol but no booze kick.
