AshtonMcCobb (5933) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 27, 2011
75cl bottle. Pours a pale yellow colour. The nose is obviously honey. The taste is a bit more complex - honey, something earthy and maybe something pear-droppy. The palate is quite rich but since Ive never had any other mead, Im not sure what Im measuring against. There is also good texture and it is fairly refreshing on the end. Overall, I enjoyed this but I dont know how to compare it. Therefore, marks are mid-range to good

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2007
Clear and very pale yellow coloured. A strong and syrupy example that manages to reach a minimal balance through a weird herbal quality. Tart and flowery and obviously very alcoholic, it never deploys the grace of top meads.

rickgordon (3858) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2007
Bottled. RBESG. Very pale, see through hue. Sweet, boozy white wine aroma. ONe-dimensional, not as developed flavour profile as the meads Ive tried. This is of course very young still. Very much white wine here. Bit of sourness that prevents it from being from sticky.

omhper (24097) - Tyres, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2007
Bottled at RBESG 07. Very pale yellow. Boozy warming honey aroma. Sweet, powerful and liqueur-like. Potent. Stays away from becoming sticky.

rlgk (18834) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2007
(RBESG 2007, Glasgow. Bottle) Very pale, no head. Honry and wine aroma, some grapes and sourish notes. Sweet honey flavor, a bit too sugary.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2007
A Mes rate: Bottle during the quick RBESG pre rate session. Perfumed wine aroma. Lemony and sweet aroma. With plenty of alcohol showing. A little too sweet for me.
