3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle in Minneapolis. Very, very light yellow, transparent appearance with a good amount of carbonation. Sweet honey nose with light hops. Sweet, light fruity, light apricot vinous flavor with light hops. Quite tasty and the hops are interesting but don’t add all that much to it.

A nice mead, hoppy, light yellow colour. Citrus and nice drinkability. Worth it for mead fans.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour out of bottle is clear yellow-orange, aroma brings notes of floral and slight grapefruit hops, touch of sweet honey and vanilla as well. Taste is a mix of honey, floral and citrus hops, finishing fairly dry but the honey sweetens a bit. Nice stuff actually.

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.

Tap @ Old Chicago, Denver. Pours waterlike, just a slight yellow tone, no head. Aroma of honey, flowers, peach, garden. Taste is garden flowers, honey, peach, apricot, light citrus, light acidic notes. Very light bodied for a mead, light carbonation. Light and easy drinking mead, not bad. 030312
