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

[Bottle] Pours a clear yellow color with no head and fizzy carbonation. Nose is mostly sweet floral honey notes with some hops mixed in. Light fruits, honey, grassy hops and citrus zest in the taste. There is some amount of a sweet/bitter clash in this mead because of the hops. The one upside is that the bitterness cut down on the honey sweetness a bit. Average mouthfeel with light alcoholic notes coming out as it warms. It’s OK.

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 17, 2007
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.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 14, 2010
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.

That1Guy (1892) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - MAR 1, 2009
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.

Dixonian (1561) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2012
On tap @ Strangeways. Clear and pale yellow pour - smells and tastes honey sweet with tangerine and a touch of floral hops.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 18, 2009
Pours a clear yellow with a small fizzy white head. Aroma is hops, honey, touch of spices, a little floral and earthy. Flavor is honey, a quite distinct hop flavor, and citrus. Nice mead.

Bacterial (1505) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Pour from a 500 mL can. Light yellow in color, sparkling in a nice way. Sweet, lots of honey and a nice bit of hops at the end. Not bad, but I don’t want to drink a ton of this.

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
