3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by brew3crew. Labeled "Sweet Golden Honey Mead"; 11.5%. Clear golden color. No head or lace. Awesome, kind of woody straight-up honey aroma. Lightly floral. Hint of spice. Nice big body, good thick almost honey-like consistency and thickness. Nice big sweet taste, light spice and wood, not cloying. Great still meads, no gimmicks.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle shared by Jason- thanks again! "Honey Mead" - redundant, but they say it cuts down on questions because most visitors are clueless about mead. Pours a clear gold with decent legs and no head. Aroma of honey and sweet apples, a little sweaty. Flavor of honey and not much else. Medium-bodied (bigger than it looks), with no carbonation and a sweet, coating mouthfeel. Solid mead.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at the Annual Wine & Beer Festival. This is a super sweet mead and is pretty much dominated by the honey from start to finish. If you like sweet meads, this is for you. If not, bring your own spices. Thicker, silky mouthfeel that honestly reminded me of honey.
Side Note: their wines were honestly surprisingly nice (the sweets were a little better than the drys to me) and an excellent deal for the money.

My first mead, pours golden, aroma is not too great, strong booze apple and honey. Taste is waaaay better, sweet honey flavors and also sweet apple and pear with beautiful smooth and thick palate. Love it and can’t wait to try more mead.
