This is not a beer, this is mead, an alcoholic wine made out of honey. I don't know what is doing here but I'll rate it anyway since I had taste it and is a very good honeywine. Actually it's one of the best mead on the market right now. Smooth and pleasent aroma but a strong flavor with a hint of spices and at the very end a little hint of honey.

Bottle. Honey, barnyard/hay, and alcohol aroma. Very pale yellow color. Sweet honey flavor with a barnyard/hay finish, Mild alcohol burn in the aftertaste. Nice body. Very nice mead. Cuso (8950) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 8, 2015
Bottle kindly donated by my daughter, who brought this from Holy Island. Clear very pale golden color, no head. Light aroma of honey, vine. Sweet honey taste with grape. hints of vanilla, sharp alcohol. Unusual but enjoyable. Benzai (16924) - 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.

Clear, still...almost colorless...just slightly yellowed.
Alcohol and light honey and lemon aroma....comes across a little nail-polishy.
Taste is sweet with a slight alcohol warmth....
Mild honey, ginger flavor.
Surprisingly gentle considering the ABV and the initial whiff of alcohol.
Mild, very good.

Bottle at the inlaws. Clear light yellow body with no head. Light honey, vanilla notes, grapes. Smooth alcohol warmth. Nice. harrisoni (19548) - 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 AshtonMcCobb (7029) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 27, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2018 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 I’ve never had any other mead, I’m not sure what I’m measuring against. There is also good texture and it is fairly refreshing on the end. Overall, I enjoyed this but I don’t know how to compare it. Therefore, marks are mid-range to good jjsint (3606) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2016
175ml glass from St Peter’s Ale House, Bedford. Light yellow, the colour of white wine. Flat. Slightly sour spicy smell. Hint of potpourri. Full sweet taste; it has a nice boozy kick. Thick mouthfeel. Sour orange peel, nutmeg and honey aftertaste. Grows on me. Quite nice.
