On tap at Rogue, San Francisco. A lightly unclear one, with some white bubbles on top. Lots of flowers in the aroma, citrusy notes too. Not much else, but what’s there is pleasant. Thin on the palate, dry and still. Flowers dominates the flavor too. Nice, but maybe a bit too much. Anyway, I like it. 130805

Just okay, for a Mead. It’s Rogue though, so I know they will get the recipe perfect very soon.

No. No. No. No. No. Not even a "nice try. Tastes like that old God-awful candy called "Fizzies". If you want a honey-based beverage, try Fullers Honey Dew. Poured outside, as I didn’t want to insult the drain.

On Draught
Pours a very pale color, lightly hazy, with a well retains small white head.

The aroma is like wax lips, those wax lips you would get back in the day, then you could chew them like gum, I believe vampire teeth were another option, but the lips was where the wax candy makers hung there hat, This smells like those wax lips, with some soap and a little spice, but mostly wax lips.

The flavor is like wax lips, it’s got some cooking spice, some soap, some booziness... It’s a little sweet up front but it’s drying in the finish. Mostly it just tastes like boozy wax lips.

A bottle of mead that gushes? Okay... Hazy golden pour with a pronounced fizz. Smells of white grape, sugar, alcohol, and grape Otter Pops. Quite medicinal, too. The flavor is terribly medicinal and syrupy. Sugar, white grape juice, and alcohol. Some tea, straw, and cardboard. Fizzy, watery, and tart.

651mL thanks to womencantsail. Pours a clear white peach to straw with light, weaker foam, which is bizarre as I would expect zero. Nose is really thick artificial peach, heavy grape flavored otter pop and children’s white grape juice box. Taste is extremely medicinal- white grape flavored cough syrup. Not really drinkable.

Sampled on tap at the Ale House in SF. A fine mead, however the flavor is not sweet or refreshing. There is a combination of flavors however not something that sits nicely on the tounge.
