Derived from the simple mixture of fermented honey, water, and yeast, the art of mead-making reaches back thousands of years, peaking in the Middle Ages. The spiritual and cultural significance of mead has been celebrated throughout the ages. Trafalgar’s Mead Braggot adds premium hops and malt to the ancient recipe, creating a delicious, refreshing drink unlike any other!

neuromatt (1169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
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

Bottle, pours a bright yellow, aroma is sweet and flavour is so a well, overall it is fairly light in honey flavours, but it was quite drinkable

Atheist_Peace (977) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
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.

Digital_Aura (227) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2013
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.

aroma is sweet and beerlike with noticeable hops and barley. clear, golden body without head and decent carbonation. Flavor is sweet, tart with a short lasting aftertaste. mouthfeel is warming with the higher alcohol content.

The braggot pours a clear medium gold colour with a short-lived white head. Aroma is tart fruit, grains,and weak honey notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, and highly carbonated. Flavour is tart fruit, and furniture polish. Hopefully meads and braggots made by other brewers taste better.

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 4, 2012
Ceramic bottle from the LCBO: Poured a bubbly golden color mead with a large white bubbly head with minimal retention. Aroma of stale honey notes with weird dry hops is not really pleasant. Taste is dryer then expected with weird dry hops notes and light stale honey notes. I should learn to stop buying beers for Trafalgar and no their mead is also quite awful.

Bottle @ Papsø. Pours a clear golden color with no head. has a fruity malty grainy weak honey aroma. Sweetish malty grainy flavor with weak hints of honey. has a sweetish malty weak spicy honey finish.

I was really surprised after my first mouthful. Very refreshing with a light honey after taste.
