2013.03.30 - Orchid Cellar Knight mead - 375ml bottle in mini goblet glass.
Pours a light copper, almost the raisiny color of a barley wine but much clearer of course. Aroma is nice but not spectacular, matches taste pretty well though. Basically honey sweetness. Taste: I’m not a mead expert but I know what I like and I like this. Very nice sweetness, prominent honey tones. Label says lemon as well, but I don’t really get that unless it’s lost but making the sweetness pop by contrast. Nice stuff, sorta vaguely like a clearer North Coast Old Stock Ale with less starchy tones and more sweetness. Surprised and pleased.

375 ML Bottle-Autunm Wine Festival, Salisbury Md-Little bit of a redish pour, sweet, floral aroma. Flavors of honey w/floral overtones, maybe some dark fruit. Aged in traditional wine barrels maybe? Solid, not spectacular. probably somewhat spoiled it by having their Archer 1st, as that one was so enjoyable!
