4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This mead is one of the best i have ever tasted, served "on tap" at my local german pub. Mead with obviously no head as it is a mead, golden bronze in colour with plenty of flavour. Smoky taste with a noticeable 19%. Reccomend you to NOT fill a normal beer glass and use a scotch glass to save you from a DUI. Well representing honey in the aste and consistency.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Belmont Station, pours a clear golden, no head. Aroma brings out lots of mulled wine, nectar and alcohol. Flavour is intensely sweet, with intense honey, nectar and alcohol. Both the sweetness and alcohol are intensely high, and bordering cloying, but it’s a pleasure to drink such luxury.
