3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours a slightly hazey gold with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet and floral with a slight citric note to it. flavor is sweet but not as floral as the nose with a little lemongrass at the end. Body is a bit thinner than I expected. sweet finish that lacks almost any bitterness. Unique but not pleasingly so.

Golden pour fine white head. Nose is honey and floral. Tastes of honey, floral, light herbs, and some raw dough. Touch of sweetness but remains refreshing. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden coloured body with a nice, rich, four centimetre tall, almost pure-white head. Aroma of honey, flowers, grapes, light perfume and a touch of yeast noticeable. Medium-bodied; Strong honey and malt flavours up front with a airy and grassy flavour that comes through with a bready and yeast flavour near the end. Aftertaste has a very mild sour kick, but the honey and sweetness is evident at the tail end, with a touch too much carbonation and effervescence to battle through. Overall, not a horrible beer, and slightly assertive and aggressive, but worth trying you want to sample a braggot/mead and still stay relatively mainstream. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Costco in Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia on 28-June-2015 for US$5,59 sampled at home after staying up all night on 15-September-2015.

Aroma is honey, grass...very light. Look is golden yellow. Medium white head. Taste is equal barley/hops, with a sweet honey finish. Sweetnes leaves the palate a little sticky, but Very refreshing. Would recommend fall instead of summer. Good beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours two fingers of head on a hazy golden body.
The aroma is mild grain.
The taste has a teasing sweetness but finishes with a lemon bitter note. Nicely balanced.
The texture is smooth but fizzy.
Nice to drink.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 650 ml. bottle. The color of the pour is olive-yellow with a moderate white foamy head.The honey is extraordinarily strong in every aspect of this beer. Any spice or herbal quality seemed subdued because of the honey. Slick, honey-like medium texture. Very, very sweet honey taste that is a bit too much.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 15/20
Honey, caramel, lemon, and dandelion nose. Hazy amber, thick head, good lacing. Sweet honey, not super strong, and little hop character. Light and watery. Obvious honey presence, but more beer than mead.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice mead that had a great honey color and flavor. The chamomile was a little but of a putoff for me but overall it was enjoyable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at UNOs. Pours clear golden with a small white head. The aroma is basically a pile of honey. The taste has a honey flavor but is not nearly as sweet as expected. There is almost a watery mess of jelly.
