Whenever I see a beer with a clever cultural reference it's hard not to stop and look. Between the name and the reputation of B. Nektar I decided this deserved to be added to my cart. Thankfully it didn't disappoint. Its only "weakness" might be that to buy it too frequently would certainly make a dent in the wallet.
Aroma / Appearance - A bronze base soaks up nearly 80% of ambient light. Honey cough syrup with a splash of lemon juice first confuses then excites the senses. The stickiness makes it feel far heavier than a mere 6% ABV.
Flavor / Palate - Fresh honey poured over a slice of lemon cake clings to the nooks and crannies of the mouth. The long lasting sticking finish then glues itself into the back of the throat. Taking up long term residence, it does not begin to fade until forced out by generous sips of water. More than a one trick novelty this fun mead shows that you don't need 10+% ABV to leave an impression.
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2017 Honey and some lemon like curing a cold. Golden pour with ok head. Light tea. Sweet finish with a hint of bitter. Tap. jake65 (3983) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - AUG 5, 2017
Bottle. Clear golden color with a few bubbles. Aroma is lemon and honey, a fair bit of tea. Tastes sweet up front with the honey before finishing with a lemon citrus taste and lots of tea. Dry lingering herbal tea finish. I was hoping for more of an Arnold Palmer type drink, but still pretty tasty. Msdrbeat (780) - East Lansing, USA - JUN 23, 2017
Bottled. Really good. Tea comes through accented by honey with a hint of lemon.

B-. Pours a clear golden color with white head. One of the many flavors doesn’t work SinH4 (6114) - Garching b. M?nchen, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2017
Bottle. Hazy orange color with white head that goes down quickly. Aroma is flower honey, tea,. Taste is tea, peppery, lemon juice, honey sweetness. Ticklish carbonation. The aroma is a bit too "breakfast honey" like for me, but the flavour is excellent. Interesting stuff! Beer5000 (6674) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2017
On tap @ Burger Bordello. Slightly unclear golden body with a very small head that totally disappears. Oily consistence without any carbonation. Aroma is mild honey in a very pleasant way as I’m not too keen on the sticky honey stuff. Flavor is sweet with something fruity and berry kinda flavor. There seems to also be some kind of fruity bitterness present together with a little hint of alcohol. Quite full bodied and sweet with a little bitter touch in the aftertaste. Long lasting aftertaste by the way. Has some interesting subtitle flavors besides the obvious honey flavor. Becomes too sweet after a while. esp0r (2928) - NORWAY - MAR 13, 2017

Copper clear, thin white head. Smell of honey, anise, hints of tea. Moderate sweet, nice honey flavor, a touch of tea, some citrus and spicy elements. All in all quite tasty
Bottle at home. Pours a crystal clear golden pour with a small white ring. Aroma is flowery honey, herbal tea, lemon, green apples, overripe fruits, light floral hops. Quite a dry almost oaky finish, from the tea? Over medium sweet, medium bitter, light sour. Medium body, under medium carbonation.
