BeardedAvenger (1264) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2017
From a saucepan, RHS Wisley Autumn Food Festival. Ascot hadn't turned up to run their stall so had to settle for a £3 shot of this. To be fair it was a cold windy day so this went down very well. Aroma of honey, spices and booze. Bright orange. A few suddy white bubble. Heavy sweetness, as per the aroma it'd also spicy and boozey. Mesium bodied. Sticky. Flat carbonation. Long warming finish. Enjoyable in the right circumstances, even though it's only October.

Bottled, 750ml, obtained somewhere along the line, drunk at home. Orange gold with no head. Quite heavily spiced sweet alcoholic beverage. Quite heavy on the palate too. Cloves and nutmeg to the fore. Different.

jjsint (3599) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2016
125ml glass at the 2016 Cambridge Beer Festival. Golden and clear. Sticky, sweet buttery scent. Not getting the promised spices, maybe a bit of clove but the scent is strong, honeyed and inviting. Sweet and slightly spiced without being sickly. Thick, sticky, gooey body. Long sexy finish. As mead should be.

75 cl bottle @ Sankt Hans Tasting, Ulfborg.
Aroma has very sweet honey tones and hints of root beer. Flavour is quite spicy with honey, mild menthol tones and hints of sweet apples. Balanced and pleasantly spiced.

Koelschtrinker (22056) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 28, 2015
Starker Honig Antrunk, der durch die erkennbaren Gewürze eher noch verstärkt wird. Rund süffig, langer Nachgeschmack, in dem der Honig erheblich länger als die Gewürze hält. Gut! 9/12/12/12/9/12

harrisoni (19531) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle at Reading BF 2014. Clear gold no head. Spicy hazelnut nougat aroma. Haven’t had a mead in ages. It’s lovely. Love the cinnamon mixed with the hazelnut praline. Delicious. God I love mead. It’s sweet and decent. Slightly sour from the spice too. Wow
