1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Thanks to Degarth for this one. Medium tan with almost no head....just like a Jewish housewife in Florida lol! Aroma of honey, model glue, slight caramel malt. The taste was astringent, very tart, with slight fruit, hopcitrus, and some tangy yeasty notes. It stayed tart and sour and never really resonated with my palate.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2006 New in town. Bottle from Beer World of Largo.
<!-- P -->
Aroma is very faint and comprises of a mostly sweet, but mainly indiscernible, smell. Looks a little meadish with its still golden body, but works up a very un-mead like head that gets a full pinky thick before fading away quickly. Plain and watery fore is followed by some chemically tart sweetness. Finish is sour and dry. Tastes like a still, cheaply made, champagne. Really not up my alley.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 This is the first product I have had from this brewer. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a pale straw color with a huge sizzling white head that quickly fades. The aroma is sweet and tangy with a hint of citrus. Very champagne like. The flavor is dry and spicy on the front. The middle is lightly sweet. The finish is again dry and spicy. Tastes a lot like dry champagne.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours like fizzy apple juice, leaving no head after fizz dies back. This matches the aroma, which is like a cross betwen apple juice and honey with a bit of a malt liquor like backdrop. Taste is sweet and cider-like but with a bit of a sour bite at the end... a little bit of a vinegar character. I won’t be back here any time soon.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
I was hoping to like this beer so that I could get more free bottles of this beer from JB who did not want to finish his 6 pack of this. Sorry JB, you are stuck with those. This was my 1st mead I tried and hopefully the last if they all taste like this. It looked flat when I poured it. I tasted flat. I never waste beer, but this is the 1st drain-pour I’ve ever had.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nice golden honey hued body with a thin patchy film of bubbles and a small ring of bubbles. Nose-herbal tea with honey. Taste-honey, clover, CO2, alcohol, menthol, apple juice, grass, grapefruit, graham crackers. Much better than I had anticipated. With a little more body, this could be a winner. The label states that there are hops in here, but I don’t detect a single hint of hops.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very low carbonation, nearly still. The aroma is honey; real honey. Nothing about it seems articficial. Flavor is a litlte sweet, and more honey again. No hops are present in the aroma or flavor.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Botttle. A golden color with a laced white head. A strong honey aroma. A horibly sweet flavor. A bad mix of cider, beer, and sweet sugars.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The name sounded good, and after 3 hours of lawn work it sounded like it would hit the spot. It is a summer beer I’d say, very pale, very carbonated and a fast fader of a head. Taste and smell of apples. Interesting and different, but a bit to get used to it.

Small to moderate head on a plain golden body with some carbonation apparent in the body. It’s a thin syrup of a beer, with notes of honey, mint, and a chlorinated swimming pool. It wasn’t terrible but it had an artificial quality that didn’t endear it to me.
