This is a bad version of a honey beer, not even worth trying. It barely has any taste of honey but there is sweetness in the aroma. Pours with no head, very thin beer, and very little taste. Pass on it. Terminus (3683) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 14, 2005
bottle-This thing has to be the worst beverage i have ever had. To think that this beer sells for 10 bucks a 6pk is repulsive. Pours very bright neon yellow with a small fizzy white head. The aroma is awful-smells like a chlorine pool and paint thinner, alka seltzer and glue. AWFUL! This is #$%&*!@ AWFUL!!! flavors taste very chlorine laden and taste like a freshly scrubed toilet smells like. 2 sips and i dumped this bitch! iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 30, 2005
12 oz bottle: clear sparkling white grape juice appearance with tiny bubbles streaming into a creamy white head. Floral & perfumy hop aromas. Very mild and almost indistinct flavour that dances around green apples and flower petals before winding up on a strange bitterness. It didn’t taste horrible, but it just wasn’t interesting… Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2005
Clear yellow body with a thin, light white head. Big bubbles. Sweet, light aroma of honey, apple cider, perfume, old bread and a touch of floral hop character. Thin body exaggerated by the big bubbled carbonation. In the mouth, it shows off a unique tartness that accompanies the sweet flavors and fizzy body. A light, quick finish. This didn’t do much for me. OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2005
12oz bottle via trade with Lou18 - Thanks Lou! Pours pale golden with a short white head that fades fast and lively carbonation rises to the top. Aroma of light honey and a little soap. Sweet flavor you can find the honey quick. Behind that though it seems a little sour to me. Light well carbonated palate. I think I prefer gluten...

"Enjoy this unique creation made with water, molasses, hops, honey and Passover yeast." Actually, I did, but not all that much. I think the honey should’ve been moved up on the ingredient list, but that would have bolstered the ABV more than was apparently intended. You can almost hear the bubbles popping as the initially large head rapidly vanishes. Nice gold color with a continual stream of carbonation. The aroma is honey sweetness with a whiff of a cleansing product. Nice and alive in the mouth. Basically it tasted like a cheap sparkling white wine with a dash of honey tossed in. It does have a nice dry finish.SpringsLicker (3640) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 6, 2005

Not really a mead to me.
This looks like a glass of ginger ale. The head fell as fast as it formed. Clear, light yellow with big gassy bubbles on the sides of the glass.
Some honey aroma with drying paint.
The ginger ale reference was fortelling.
Sweet but light with a very light body. Refreshing but not much there really. ehhdayton (1188) - USA - AUG 17, 2005
A golden color with no head. A honey aroma and taste to the beer. Very light body and aftertaste. biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2005
Clear, yellow and lightly carbonated. Floral honey aroma. Still on the palate. Nutty mead flavor with some white wine notes. Really a nice light mead. richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2005
thanks to lou18 for this, pours a (surprise surprise) honey color, with no head at all (honestly, not sure if mead should have a head). there was little or no aroma...what there was was (surpirse again) honey toned. flavor was very nice, with the hops and honey blending very nicely. the bottle was over carbonated, to the point that it was actually fizzy like a soda when i poured it out. after some of the carbonation came out, it settled down into a very nice, crisp mouthfeel. i enjoyed this as a nice change up from all the thick heavy beers i have been drinking lately.
