On tap. Terrible. Worst thing I’ve ever drank. Pours like dirty water. Translucent and just slightly more yellow/brown than tap water. Aroma is non-existent. Taste is just awful. Toothpaste, medicinal, throat spray, chewing tobacco, and vomit. Please never make this again.

So this is my very first experience with Mead. Yeah, I’m sure I could have selected a sexier mead to have for my first, but I’ve known Rogue for a really long time now, and I’d say we are comfortable with each other, and it felt right. 22 ounce bottle purchased at the Rogue Issaquah brew house. Very inexpensive, which sold me, because when it comes to mead, that makes this unique right from the start. Pours a cloudy peach color with a sweet herbal tea aroma. Flavor is rich honey, and big floral. Very interesting drink here, and not really what I expected, even though I’m not sure what I was expecting in the first place. Very easy drinking, floral, fruit juice. Not bad.

Koelschtrinker (13631) - 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
