I had this on the Holy Island, and while walking around the village I took a peek or two around the back. Small operation. The problem is, it’s not really mead--they don’t use their own honey, and they’re not really fermenting honey anyway. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that it isn’t very good. Sharp, sickly, artificial and really unpleasant. Too bad, because otherwise it’s a nice story (and the Holy Island remains a magical place). imdownthepub (14546) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2012
Snifter at St Aidens Winery, Holy Island, Northumberland. Very pale yellow, no head. More like a sweet wine, honeyed, quite rich, sharp alcohol note and a salty, calcium hint. Not for me. onystrom (1333) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2012
Clear no color color... like water, no head. Aroma is odd. Flavor is sweet and marzipan with some sour bitterness. HenrikSoegaard (14166) - Randers, DENMARK - APR 17, 2012

old barnyard, pale, clear, light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, soft carbonation, dry finish. saxo (18299) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 14, 2012
Bottle. No head. Color is close to water. Aroma and taste are herbs, honey and alcohol. A bit odd. Benzai (15585) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2011
Sampled @ Southampton Arms, London. First mead ever. Appearence?? Hmm, quite hard to descri-be. Something like clear but slightly odd-colored water I would say. Weird anyway. Smells like some spirit or liquor. Pretty sweet, decent taste, soft as well. Little bit like white martini. Soft mouthfeel, soft carbo, medium body. Pretty nice.
