2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at Bell's Eccentric Cafe, Kalamazoo, MI. 10.3%.
Clear watery color with some yellowish notes and tiny white head.
Sweetness... melon? and sugar in the aroma. Mild lemony tartness, sugary and fruity sweetness and some alcohol in the flavor. Not my cup of tea.

Tap at bells. Pale golden with small head. Light mouthfeel for a mead, and quite a bit of carbonation. Slightly warm booziness. Dry honey and not much else. Just eh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Bells. This is interesting. The pour is a crystal clear light good color with no head and no lace to be found. The aroma is sweet, but itís light. There is a dryness there and a bit of what seems like apple skins. Itís not too bad, but itís just so plain. The flavor is where this one falls apart. There is a ton of dry honey that just isnít good. Itís got a little tartness from some kind of fruit skin, and it finishes strange. There seems to be a lot of apple in this one. The mouth feel is syrupy and heavy with no carbonation and a lingeringly dry, sweet honey to go with the apple thing. Not good

Overall, light bodied and more carbonation than Iím used to it a Mead...still pretty tasty.
