@RLRL with Orlando group-thanks to redlight and TheCheeseMan-750ml bottle-pours a white ring for a head and pale yellow color with effervescence. Aroma is mild sweet herbal, hop-perfumy. Taset is sweet herbal, hop-perfumy. Good effervescence. Best of everything Iíve had from Redstone.

ben4321 (4094) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2010
Location: Tap at Rattle íN 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.

Autumn Brew Review, 2013. Clear color. Fairly dry, just a little sweetness. Mild hops in the aroma and more in the flavor.

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 donít want to drink a ton of this.

On tap at the 2014 OCBF. Pours a clear pale gold with no head whatsoever. Aroma has lots of honey that is slightly dry, a bit of sweetness and a touch of backing pine. Flavor has a combination of sweet and dry honey with a hint pine backing.

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.

GABF 2009. Very interesting - a hopped mead. Clear golden yellow color with a fairly fizzy white head. Aroma is honey, spice, and citrusy hops. Flavor is more of the same with citrusy hops and some light fruits. Palate is medium-light and carbonation is fairly high. Pretty good overall.

Bottle at Spuyten Duyvil, New York
Blond color; rare small foam crown. The aroma is interesting, flowery (orange blossom) and nutty (almonds). Itís lightly carbonated, not much sweet, with some apple flavor and not much honey. Also the bitterness and hopping are difficult to perceive. And the final reminds me carbonated apple juice. Not totally bad, but strange; it confirms that Redstone is not a top meadery.

Not sure about the whole carbonated mead thing, it almost tastes like soda. That being said, itís pretty good. Thinner and lighter on the palate than Iím used to for mead, but certainly drinkable nonetheless.
