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

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.
