On tap @ Redstone. Pale yellow pour. Aromas of lemon, orange, and honey. Fairly dry, a bit floral, maybe some grass. Flavor is quite dry. Lemon, orange, and some honey. Floral honey and hop aromas. Grassy finish. Lightly fruity.

On tap at the Stone 17th anniversary festival. Clear, pale golden. Tooth paste and some flower honey in the aroma, not much else. Some tooth paste in the flavor too. Some warmth in the mouth, flat. Well, not impressive in any way, but drinkable. 130817

iggynelix (71) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Light pale in appearance and thin. Feels like a white wine spritzer with the sharpness of a pinot grigio with only over tones of honey. Very distinct. A nice summer session with some sharp cheeses

kaser (2791) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Had this on draft at breckenridge brewery in Denver. Clear orange pour with no head. This is awful. Can’t even finish it. Tastes like rotten apple cider. About spit this out

Dogbrick (8237) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Sample at GABF 10/11/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. This Mead is a clear pale yellow-orange color and decent legs. Aroma of citrus and honey. Medium body with flavors of fruit, sweet honey and subtle hops. The finish is fruity and sweet. Slightly above average overall.

dwyerpg (4579) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Wow. The first mead I’ve ever had that smells of hops. Also the lightest alcohol mead for me as well. A very thin finish. Don’t get much hops or any really in the flavor.

gnoff (7933) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2012
Draught at Redstone in Boulder, on October 8, 2012
Clear pear color, small white head. Sweet, hoppy, citrus scent. Sweet, sugary, wood taste. Spritzy mouthfeel, tart finish.

Not sure about the whole carbonated mead thing, it almost tastes like soda. That being said, it’s pretty good. Thinner and lighter on the palate than I’m used to for mead, but certainly drinkable nonetheless.
