Tap at Rattle N Hum. Very clear, transparent pale straw pour. The nose is loaded with honeyish sweetness. The hop aroma is barely there - just a simple sweet clover honey mead with a little bit of light mintiness. Simple, but pretty good.

Bottle at Oldsmar Tap House. Looks like white grape juice. Aroma is white grapes, hops, and citrus fruits. Flavor is white grapes, other fruits, and honey. Medium bodied with good amount of carbonation. Not bad at all.

This was really interesting and I think I kind of liked it. Looks like off-colored water from a place where you "don’t drink the tap water." Not incredibly appealing, but at least its mead and not beer. Tastes like a lighter mead with some fresh hops. Diane Byrne noted: lychee and Big League Chew. Fo real.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Boulder Strong Fest. Draught. Very light yellow...I saw someone else drinking it and I thought they were drinking water. Aroma is light resin, lemon, and obviously honey. Flavor is sweet and acidic. Watery and weird

ben4321 (3916) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2010
Location: Tap at Rattle ’N Hum, 4/17/10

Aroma: The aroma is sweet, with some fruity, some honey, and some resiny hop notes
Appearance: Pours a clear apple juice body with minimal head
Flavor: The taste is pretty sweet as well, with a slight hop presence for some balance
Palate: The carbonation is fizzy, and the body is light and refreshing
Overall Impression: This stuff was pretty interesting. Certainly a crisp and refreshing drink, though not my favorite style in the world, I do enjoy one of these every now and again.

On tap at Pap. Golden pour with no head. Honey, alcohol and piney hops in the aroma and flavor. There are elements in this that were never meant to be put together. Kinda not good.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2010
Pours a yellowish color. Aroma of some hop, light honey as well as grapefruit. Flavor is the same as aroma and kinda nasty. Mouth feel is watery and lightly carbonated. Overall, I’m thinking hop’s do not belong in a mead. Just my opinion.
