3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ar: Pungent lavender, very floral; toasty honey, with a bit of a malty edge; hints of butterscotch and pale caramel, with a touch of beeswax. Ap: Yellow and clear; no head. T: Pale honey, orange, lime, and very pronounced lavender; medium-low sweetness; beeswax and caramel, with hints of pineapple; clean alcohol; toasted oak, crackers, and lavender on the finish. P: Medium body with a very, very light carbonation; finish is medium-dry. O: A tasty semi-sweet mead with very pronounced lavender, quite appropriately; some of the caramel and fruit flavor do seem to get a bit muddled, but overall there is a fairly good level of complexity and most of the flavors complement one another.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 from Leighton. A straw yellow color. very faint though. The aroma is like a fresh honey comb, not cloying but you get a orange blossom honey right from the comb aroma with rose and flowers. Flavor is less, sweet and more floral. Light, a little chewy at the end with traces of honey that linger on.

Bottle at home in NH. Pours clear, fairly pale. The nose has floral honey, white bread, faint ginger, vanilla, alcohol. Medium to big sweet flavour with creamy honey, some buttered dough, vanilla, hints of toffee, faint lemon, abstract spicing. Medium to full bodied, lightly oily, not too thick. Warming finish, with some doughy wheat, some cereal, hay, understated honey, background floral tones. Enjoyable mead.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ Maine Mead Works. Clear yellow colored mead. Very, very strong lavender aroma. Highly floral overall. I guess that should be expected... Has some grass, dried herbs, and maybe a touch of booze. Not terribly sweet. Finishes a bit hot, herbal, and perhaps almost savory.
