2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear, translucent yellow with no head. In fact, even a vigorous pour could only summon big ugly bubbles and no head. Aroma is sweet honey and... not much else really. Where are the hops? Digging deeper. There is a few fruity notes too now, no hops. Taste is raw honey, not picking up any malt or hops again... at least it is not cloying. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but I can forgive that, it is still drinkable at least. I wasn’t expecting much and I am not getting much either... Never had any other products from Trafalgar but this wouldn’t push me to look further.

2013-02-22. Hazy dark orange amber, small off-white head. Odd aroma of honey with alcohol and phenols. lightly fruity. flavour is a bit odd, sort of tangy Honey character. Odd finish has an almost mineral undertone. Floral perfumey honey. Good enough that Greg decide to bathe his phone with it. Bottle shared by Hogtownharry.

4.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
I have been a beer drinker for as long as I have known. I predominantly drink Guinness and Kilkenny with a favourite domestic thrown in. I have now discovered "Trafalgar’s Baggott Mead". The best word to describe it is "amazing", maybe even "outstanding". I feel this could be my beverage of choice for the rest of my life, except for one humongous problem.
For one 500ml stoneware bottle you have to pay 9.99!!!!!!! it is bottled in a different type of bottle, with a not so ridiculuious price tag, I feel this brew will explode in sales and consumption. There is a big difference in production consistency. I have had to return a few bottles to the LCBO, but when it is good it is spectacular. I am only giiving this brew a 4.8 out of 5 only because they can occasionally, "hit the nail on the head"! Once the brewery gets it’s consistency right, the world will be a better place.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle [500ml] shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours copper-gold with a spare diminishing white head. Aroma is garbage, with stale honey, some leafiness and something off-putting I can’t place. Flavour: How to describe this? Vegetal with floral notes, perfumy honey and something bad. Light bodied. Like I said, garbage.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 mL ceramic bottle from the LCBO, served in a snifter. Pours clear golden with a small, off-white head that fades rapidly to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has big honey notes, along with flowers, apple, and hints of tropical fruit and delicate hops. The flavour is a bit sweet with above mentioned notes of honey, apple, banana and subtle hops. The finish is short and clean with just a touch of honey. On the palate, it is light, with a slightly syrupy texture and very light carbonation. Overall, this is a fairly simple mead with fruity and subtle hop notes. It is tasty enough, but lacks the complexity I had hoped for. 2012-10-17

Hazy golden pour with no head. Super rich cider nose with lots of floral and honey notes. Tastes a lot like an iced cider, pretty sweet, concentrated apples. Pretty full, mouth coating body.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml growler. Mead pours flatly into glass producing no head or lace. Fizzy though. Looks like ginger ale. Sweet honey scent. Tastes unlike honey though and similar to commercial ginger ale or 7up. Very flat. Somewhat disappointed there's no real honey taste.
