I rated this brew thinking it was a beer, not a mead, and thought it definitely lacked "beeriness." Now I understand why. IMHO, it was way too fizzy and was heavy on the honey, yet was still watery. I think Ramapo could stand to put less water and more honey in this brew, making it more like a mead, because it didnít taste much like one. It was more like a honeyish glass of water.

Wow - this is some thick stuff - syrupy sweet clover tasting honey, carbonation and a woody hop bitterness at the finish. OK - now I see that itís a mead and it makes sense. It was interesting, but I donít need any more of it.

12 oz. bottle. This beer had a horrible bitterness to it, not hops, which I love. The honey flavor came through, but was masked by this awful, sour, bitterness. I wouldnít drink this again.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2004 OK, this was a strange one to rate, because it was not like any other mead iíve head, yet did not have the characteristics I usually find in beer. It poured a bright golden color with a mildly sticky, white, bubbly head and no lacing on the glass. Sweet aroma of honey and molasses, but an alcoholic presence was also there. Too much water and too little honey in the taste. Initially this tasted just like sparkling water, then a light fruitiness (grapes and apples), and the aftertaste was very sweet and mead like. Medium carbonation. However, this was slightly more flavorful than the other gluten-free beer I had.

I had to try this considering it is a 100% gluten-free "beer" made with no barley (how itís a lager, then, Iíll never know, but thatís what it says on their website) - very pale golden in color, with no head at all - light, almost mead-like aroma, with honey and some tartness - this is very delicate stuff, with a touch of clover honey, herbs and a mild tartness - this is not nearly as sweet as I feared it would be - finish of dried herbs and something that can only be described as "malt substitute" - this lends a kind of artificial quality to the finish that didnít sit right with me, and eventually made the whole experience of this beer seem like some sort of lab-manufactured, chemical recreation of a beer - good to a point, and worth the experience I suppose, but Iíll never touch this stuff again.

Crystal clear golden yellow color, barely a lacing around the side of the glass. A mellow honey flavor, very smooth. It does seem like it’s missing something, but maybe that is just an expectation I had. Mild, smooth finish and fresh lavender finish. Delicate and light. Somewhat sweet, but not overly so. Too many mineral salts, and the finish becomes a little too "chemical" after a few sips. Yet this is an interesting summer brew!
