COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The ancient warriors of Scandinavia drank mead to fight better. Mead is brewed of honey, herbs and spices. The taste is very sweet and alcoholic and not like normal beer. When you brew it at home it normally gets an alcohol percentage of 13-15%. Today there are no commercial mead brewers, only some micro brewers in Denmark, Sweden and Norway.

Echon (62) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2015
Very pale straw colour. Sweet aroma with a bit of honey. Sweet honey taste with no notes of interest. Dull. Tastes like it was made with too much water. Medium body with a bit of alcohol in the finish. This is one of the most boring meads I have had. Very cheap but not worth it. May be useful to spike a simple lager.

Vighals (2040) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2015
Lys brun klar med minimalt hvitt skum. Lukter epler og fisken. Mye sødme i smak, honning, brunt sukker, epler og alkohol. Ingen kullsyre. Syrlig. Vinøs. Søt klissete.

NosirIwont (2152) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - APR 15, 2014
Ceramic bottle. 15%. Only my second mead, and the first in 6 years. No too sure what to look for, but here goes: Pours a clear, pale golden. No head. Aroma has apple in the vicinity of the glass. In the glass, it’s honey, so sweet obviously, but also with a slight tart note, which feels like apple (juice) as well. Feels a bit dusty. Flavour is honey, and a bit tart as well. Sweet finish with a lingering mild alcohol burn. Slightly ’thick’ palate. Overall okay. 11.04.14.

Defreni (2860) - Husum, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2014
Flaske: Det kan godt være jeg ikke er en regulær mjød drikker og dette er en dårlig udgave, men jeg syntes godt nok at denne helt lysegule drik med flydende honingduft og smag er lækker. Skulle måske til at udvide bekendtskabet med mjød.

Meilby (9728) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle 500ml
Pours clear deep golden with no head. Aroma has notes of honey, raisin, plums and alcohol. Taste is medium to heavy sweet with a long dried fruity and honey finish. Body is full, texture is sticky, no carbonation.
