3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Surprised at the low scores. I found this really nice and refreshing. The dry hopping gave it a really nice finish and solid flavor.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Clear pear yellow colored body, effervescent and bubbly, small white layer of carbonation on top. Overly sweet nose of pears, a little acetone, mostly just a general honey smell... flavor is no different. Has a slight bitterness, the dry-hopping imparts a minor flavor and aroma of dried grass... nothing remarkable about this mead at all. Couldn’t drink much of it.

shared with thickfreakness at the Flying Saucer 8th anniversary party .. .Lots of odd aromas; light honey, english tea and nail polish dominate .. . pours a very clear yellow .. . very low bubbles .. funny enough, enjoyable, but you have to get over the smell .. .

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2009 Crushed with Jakebra at BSAF. Honey and nectar on the nose and in the flavor. Not much in the way of hops, however. Incredibly sweet still.
Re-rate: Nice nose with lots of sweetness. Very sweet flavor but not overly. Just pleasant. Pretty awesome.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours flat with no head. Looks like Chardonnay. Smell is huge fusel alcohol, nail polish, honey, and slight grassiness. Flavor is a lot better with oaky(?) honey, grassy hops and booze. Smooth and a little bit of spritzy carbonation. Worth a try buy just ok.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at 6th Boulder Strong Ale Festival. Pours clear light yellow with a spare, fizzy, white head, diminishing with no lacing. Aroma is average malt (hay, straw), average hops (flowers, grass), light yeast (sweat) with notes of honey and green olives. Medium bodied, gritty texture, average carbonation, and an astringent finish. Average duration, moderate sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2014 A really interesting twist to the typical sweet meads that Redstone makes. The mead was a nice golden color and was medium to dry in sweetness. A little hop aroma but not to much to overpower the honey. From what I understand the mead will not be made again for some time because of the hop shortage.Get it while you can.---added now available in cans. Great idea.

sampled on tap at the San Diego Strong Ale Festival Nov 2008, an event shared with what seemed liked hundreds of ratebeerians and enjoyed mostly through a straw, since my face was a bloody mess of scabs and stitches. very light in color with a honey sweet nose. taste is very sweet citrus with some hops, but only a little. after a day of imperial stouts, BW and IIPA this was quite refreshing, but not spectactular.

sampled @ GABF 07. I really liked this actually. Sweet honey aroma with citrus hops. Pours very light blonde. The flavor is mildly sweet the hops balance out the sweetness nicely and give it a good hop flavor.
