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.

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

MeadMe (1332) - Riverview, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Pours a pale yellow. Aromas of nice sweet honey and floral hops. The flavor is very sweet like unfermented honey. Light apple and flowers. The hops come through in the finish. For some reason the flavors just don’t meld here.

Clear dark yellow. Carbonated. Not terribly sweet. Deep flavor. Very delicious. Hint of spices.

Danyel (1087) - Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours light crisp yellow with little to no white head. Looks like a Chardonnay. Smells like flowers , honey, sweet. Has a very crisp backbone, very champagne-like, fruity, honey, very floral. Really very good- not too sweet, not too dry. I really like this mead!

7 oz goblet on tap. Pale yellow in color, slight happy aroma, sweet honey notes. Somewhat dry quality. Good stuff.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Light-bodied mead with bubbly carbonation. The flavor is a lighter honey than Redstone’s Traditional Mead. Hops add a twist - grape on top of a lttle tangerine.

GandGKevin (920) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Kinda surprised by the low score. This is actually quite nice and refreshing. Not overly honey on the aromas and flavors. Nice sweet citrusy smell and light on the palate. The carbonation is a good touch. Overall I found it very good.

HIGHB4LL (656) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Sampler at Scrumpy’s. Appearance: honey yellow, clear. Aroma: nice hops scent, citrus, floral, honey background. Palate: same sticky honey, but with light bitter finish that lasts a couple seconds. Taste: sweet honey, falling into mild bitterness. Overall, I really enjoyed this one, more so likely because I am more of a hoppy beer person than a sweet mead person.

bikesandbeers (547) - san diego, California, USA - FEB 6, 2008
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.
