Sampled as part of a costco 22oz four-pack. A nice beer. Not your typical mead, more of a flavored beer, but quite enjoyable. Smooth and carbonated.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Battleship. Pours a cloudy golden color. Aroma is of malts, honey, some fruit, and some floral scents. Flavor is on the sweeter side. I can taste honey, malts, a little grass, and earthiness. Palate is medium bodied. Leaves a sweeter malt and honey finish. Honestly this is nothing special. I’ve had plenty of other Meads that are much better. Sam Adams should just stick to beers, because those have become commercialized and is need of flavor.

A: Very sweet. Honey aroma. earthy.
A: Looks amazing. Thick. Golden. Great lacing.
T: Intense on the taste but as you work into it it’s not too bad.
P: Pretty rough on the palate. Some good notes but very aggressive carbonation.
Overall not a terrible beer/mead thing but not great. Some interesting notes but not a super tasty brew.

Pours clear oily golden with a small white head. Smells of honey and hops. Taste is sweet and has a little bitter balance. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Samuel Adams Honey Queen finishes with a subtle floral kiss.

Interesting brew. Nice aroma of honey and hop and flower. Taste pretty much matched the aroma, but with a mild spice and sweet finish.

(bottle) Lightly cloudy orange body, small white head. Sweet, strong honey aroma, wheat, fruit, tea, light lemon. Medium body, a bit chewy, lots of soft carbonation. Strong floral honey flavor. I like the honey flavor, but its a bit cloying.

This pours a clear gold with a good sized white head. Good lacing. Nose of ripe fruit and honey. Fairly full in body. The flavor is a nice honey sweet but not overly so like most meads. This is really easy drinking and quite refreshing.
