Wow. The first mead Ive ever had that smells of hops. Also the lightest alcohol mead for me as well. A very thin finish. Dont get much hops or any really in the flavor.

Clear light yellow with no head. Sweet honey and rose aroma and taste with a lightly vegetal finish. Pretty good.

Tap at the bottle shop. Pale yellow pour, nose is honey, sweet, hops, and florals. Smooth on the palate, honey, light hops, and a sweet finish.

Tap. Pale golden with minimal head. Medium honey sweetness. Hops dont mesh particularly well with the honey. Smells better than it tastes.

ChainGangGuy (4874) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 27, 2016
500ml can - $2.99 at Bullocks Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia. Appearance: Pours a clear, very lightly hued, pale yellow body. No head formation. Smell: A big splash of white wine garnished with a pair of wax lips and housing a hint of modeling putty. Very faint undercurrent of honey water. A hint of citrus, a nibble of orchard fruit. Taste: A very light, spectral touch of honey. Slightly sweet. Mild citrus, floral hints. Modestly bitter, aided, in part, by the carbonation. Feels a bit, at times, like a fairly dry white wine. Finishes with some warmth, fairly dry and, again, a bit white wine-like. Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium-light carbonation. Overall: Drinkable, yes, but not overly enjoyable. Didnt hate it, though!

GABF 2009. Very interesting - a hopped mead. Clear golden yellow color with a fairly fizzy white head. Aroma is honey, spice, and citrusy hops. Flavor is more of the same with citrusy hops and some light fruits. Palate is medium-light and carbonation is fairly high. Pretty good overall.

robinvboyer (4404) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2012
Obvious loads of floral honey, and a touch of apples with. Pleasant citrus hit from the hops. No bitterness, but you get a nice shot of citrus from the hops. Quite pleasant, but you cant drink very much at once.

nick76 (4387) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2010
The aroma is sweet and a tiny bit plasticky and fruity with the requisite amount of honey. The appearance is pale gold with plenty of bubbles. The taste is like the aroma and quite sweet. The palate is thin but right for a carbonated mead. Overall this is a little disappointing.

TURDFERGUSON (4055) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 11, 2010
This was really interesting and I think I kind of liked it. Looks like off-colored water from a place where you "dont drink the tap water." Not incredibly appealing, but at least its mead and not beer. Tastes like a lighter mead with some fresh hops. Diane Byrne noted: lychee and Big League Chew. Fo real.

16oz can 2/12/15 (Courtesy of TerryR)-40 in Snifter-Pours a clear golden with no head. Aroma of hops, honey, caramel, and apple. Taste of apple, honey, hops, and sweetness. This light bodied mead is different but still tasty.
