Has been collected by our bees in the lush meadows of beautiful Prince Edward Island.

HogTownHarry (6379) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2012
February 11, 2012 - with JoeMcPhee, blankboy, jercraigs & mabel. Clear 750ml bottle c/o j&m. Very pale gold, no head, pretty much no legs either - uhmmm ... okay? - damned if I know what a good mead looks like. Smells of alcohol, honey and actual floral bitterness - not bad! Taste is ... mild; more like a light white wine with some honey and grassiness added. Light body, not very syrupy, weak carbonation, some tartness in the quick finish - ehhh.
