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.

Sample at GABF 10/11/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. This Mead is a clear pale yellow-orange color and decent legs. Aroma of citrus and honey. Medium body with flavors of fruit, sweet honey and subtle hops. The finish is fruity and sweet. Slightly above average overall.

phaleslu (7041) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Guest tap at Perennial, served in a wine glass. Pours the color of white wine - clear, with no head. Notes of honey, florals, tea, lemon, and wet paint. Light-bodied, with low carbonation and a vinous mouthfeel. Not much to say about this one. Very basic mead.

redlight (2317) - 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.

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.

[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. Itís OK.

Bottle at Rattle n Hum shared by Alex of SKI: I was drinking different beers and rated this from memory. Light golden pour. Sweet and herbal aroma, a bit buttery and biscuity- mild chamomile notes peak through. Light spritzy body. Softly sweet flavor. Honeyish, and herbal but quite buttery, especially on the back. Sub par and macro-ish.
