Me being a fan of ginger, I found this one to be one of my favourites. The ginger is very evident, while the spices were subdued. But a big, flavourful mead.

Sampled at the Meadery...very spice forward mead with huge ginger and honey. This is a sipper and would be good after you lit your head on fire with spicy Thai food.

Sampled at Clockwork’s 4K/5K/10K gathering 2013. Bottle pours a clear body with no lacing. Aroma is is light honey, ginger and tea. Mouthfeel is medium - pretty drinkable and somewhat pleasant overall despite the strange burnt rubber character - nothing incredible though.

Bottle at James’s 4k/5k/10k tasting. Pours a mostly clear gold with no head. Big ginger and a good hint of spices, a strange new shoe smell, fresh rubber. Spicy with more rubbery notes, weird. Spicy on the finish, more rubbery tires and ginger. Strange.
