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 dont want to drink a ton of this.

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.

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.

Bottle at Spuyten Duyvil, New York
Blond color; rare small foam crown. The aroma is interesting, flowery (orange blossom) and nutty (almonds). Its 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, its pretty good. Thinner and lighter on the palate than Im used to for mead, but certainly drinkable nonetheless.

Sample at GABF 10/11/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. This Mead is a clear pale yellow-orange color and decent legs. Aroma of citrus and honey. Medium body with flavors of fruit, sweet honey and subtle hops. The finish is fruity and sweet. Slightly above average overall.

Guest tap at Perennial, served in a wine glass. Pours the color of white wine - clear, with no head. Notes of honey, florals, tea, lemon, and wet paint. Light-bodied, with low carbonation and a vinous mouthfeel. Not much to say about this one. Very basic mead.
