Bottle from pechams, drank on byres road with jacob and the crew. Aroma is very floural, perfumy, hints at the white grapes and the honey character is subtle, id guss thios a sweet desert wine. Taste has far more honey character, however vry similar to the aroma has a bite off the grapes, which keeps it intresting. Chin Chin!

BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2007
[50 ml bottle] Pours perfectly clear, light straw colored. Boozy, white wine aroma- musty and slightly acidic. Sugary grape flavors with some good fruits-- pear, melon and plenty of grape juice. Alcohol warmth is pretty strong and balances the sweetness very well.

harrisoni (19165) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2005
Bottle from Lindisfarne Tourist shop bought for me by my mother as a gift. Golden liquid with sweet notes on the aroma. bit herby on flavour with sweetish finish. Can’t say I got a lot of honey from it, but this was my first proper mead and I have to say I really enjoyed it. Well chilled it was refreshing, crisp and made me feel extremely chipper

MiP (15960) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2005
Golden colour. Mild, sweet aroma. Sweet flavour, not much honey, but a little unpleasant bitterness. Watery finish.

leaparsons (10698) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2005
Bottle from "The Offie", Leicester. The great drinke of olde inglude. Bright yellow gold in colour and still. Aromas are sweet and honeyed with vanilla and as boozy as a spirit - well it is 14.5%. Flavours are similar to sweet German white wine with hints of honey and some spices. Quite syrupy on the palate yet comforting and warming. £8.95 for 1 litre but a worthwhile experience.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - JUN 10, 2004
Yellow colored. Sweet and alcoholic aroma with vanilla tones. Flavor is very sweet at first with some lemon sourness in the end. Some honey also. Quite thin. Not as good as most Danish meads in my opinion.

Ungstrup (38242) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2004
A pale yellow mead with no head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol and vanilla. The flavor has strong notes of cream, citrus, and honey. It is very sweet - too sweet for me - it feels sticky in the mouth. Thanks to Jez (Rauchbier) for bringing this one over the Northsea.

2.9
Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2004
Much more alcoholic and watery aroma than Danish mead. Less sweet than most Danish mead. Fruity and dry finish.
