@RLRL with Orlando group-thanks to redlight and TheCheeseMan-750ml bottle-pours a white ring for a head and pale yellow color with effervescence. Aroma is mild sweet herbal, hop-perfumy. Taset is sweet herbal, hop-perfumy. Good effervescence. Best of everything I’ve had from Redstone. brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 9, 2013
On tap @ Redstone. Pale yellow pour. Aromas of lemon, orange, and honey. Fairly dry, a bit floral, maybe some grass. Flavor is quite dry. Lemon, orange, and some honey. Floral honey and hop aromas. Grassy finish. Lightly fruity. JK (6342) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Autumn Brew Review, 2013. Clear color. Fairly dry, just a little sweetness. Mild hops in the aroma and more in the flavor. Bacterial (3074) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Pour from a 500 mL can. Light yellow in color, sparkling in a nice way. Sweet, lots of honey and a nice bit of hops at the end. Not bad, but I don’t want to drink a ton of this. deyholla (12589) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2014
On tap at the 2014 OCBF. Pours a clear pale gold with no head whatsoever. Aroma has lots of honey that is slightly dry, a bit of sweetness and a touch of backing pine. Flavor has a combination of sweet and dry honey with a hint pine backing.

clear golden color, aroma sweet honey, mild hops, grassy and earthly with thistle like nose. flavors, mild bitetrness, with a honey sweetness that is a little on the light side, floral mouthfeel with some thistle flower. Light fruits with lingering medicinal finish. GandGKevin (934) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Kinda surprised by the low score. This is actually quite nice and refreshing. Not overly honey on the aromas and flavors. Nice sweet citrusy smell and light on the palate. The carbonation is a good touch. Overall I found it very good. nickd717 (4999) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 7, 2009
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. fiulijn (21516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2009

Blond color; rare small foam crown. The aroma is interesting, flowery (orange blossom) and nutty (almonds). It’s lightly carbonated, not much sweet, with some apple flavor and not much honey. Also the bitterness and hopping are difficult to perceive. And the final reminds me carbonated apple juice. Not totally bad, but strange; it confirms that Redstone is not a top meadery.
Not sure about the whole carbonated mead thing, it almost tastes like soda. That being said, it’s pretty good. Thinner and lighter on the palate than I’m used to for mead, but certainly drinkable nonetheless.
