2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml can - $2.99 at Bullock’s Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a clear, very lightly hued, pale yellow body. No head formation.
Smell: A big splash of white wine garnished with a pair of wax lips and housing a hint of modeling putty. Very faint undercurrent of honey water. A hint of citrus, a nibble of orchard fruit.
Taste: A very light, spectral touch of honey. Slightly sweet. Mild citrus, floral hints. Modestly bitter, aided, in part, by the carbonation. Feels a bit, at times, like a fairly dry white wine. Finishes with some warmth, fairly dry and, again, a bit white wine-like.
Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium-light carbonation.
Overall: Drinkable, yes, but not overly enjoyable. Didn’t hate it, though!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This bottled Mead from a beer bar poured a head of bubbles that were and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent weak yellow colored body and no lacing. The mild aroma was cinnamon vanilla and honey. The off-tasting crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering spicy aftertaste. The odd tasting flavor contained notes of mild spice and honey. Not one that I would likely drink again.

Sampled at the Manitou Wine Festival. The nose is brilliant clover honey, with good hop character of orange peels and pine. Very sweet, with a fairly significant hop bitterness that gives it a good dry finish. This is a surprisingly balanced, aromatic, and delicious mead.

Cannery Row Beer Club tastes Meads tonight. This one was $11 per bottle. We have mixed feelings about the carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasting at Savannah Bee at their Broughton St. location in Savannah. The most expensive mead of the group I tasted and the one I liked the least. Pours a clear yellow gold with a fizzy white head. The aroma is sweet honey, citrusy hops, and a bit of apple. The flavor is similar. For me the hops and honey never really mesh together. On the lighter side of medium bodied.

Tap. Pale golden with minimal head. Medium honey sweetness. Hops don’t mesh particularly well with the honey. Smells better than it tastes.

Pours a pale straw color. Aroma of light fruit. Taste of light fruit and not much else. Light body, a bit watery. Reminded me of a wine spritzer. Expected a whole lot more.
