fiulijn (16644) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
Draught at REAL A Gastropub, Honolulu, HI
as Chatoe Rogue 19 Colonies Mead With Jasmine

Blond color with compact and persistent head. Some aroma of honey. Light mouthfeel, dry, with some ordinary honey flavor, and a mild flowery touch from the jasmine; it also has a moderate bitterness.
As pleasant as a wheat beer, in other words not interesting as mead.

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

Yellow color, small white head, Whitewineous honey and tea aroma. Light-bodied. Very carbonated. Champagne like palate. White wine, green apple, yeast, tea and honey in the flavor. Interesting Champagne beer, flavorwise not so.

brokensail (13757) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 15, 2013
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.

Koelschtrinker (13628) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 29, 2015
Laffer Honigantrunk, was durch die Karbonisierung noch einmal geschmälert wird. Möglicherweise vorhandene Kräuternoten fallen hinten über, minimal herb, auch eher unpassend. 9/7/7/7/11/7

Bomber from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours like a cider - lightly gold and a very transient white head. Aroma is sort of honey flower. Light body. Flavor is fairly thin - not your typical syrupy mead. It’s mildly honey with touches of jasmin. For me it’s not sweet - bitter in a way rather different from most beers. Maybe it’s the tea. Quite different.
