Bottle. Golden with a honey like sweetness. Smooth and quite easy to drink but not really my thing. Would not drink again.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2014 Just started a replay of Skyrim & it feels obligatory to drink some mead in that virtual land of ice & snow. I’m far from an expert on the style, but this turns out better than expected. The pour causes a roar of carbonated applause, so loud I thought it’d wake up my baby. Taste is somewhere between subtle honey & tart ginger ale. Worth trying. And the rating score here is way too low.

The mead pours a hazed golden yellow with a minimal white head and plenty of effervescence. The aroma is honey, light fruit, grains, and spices. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is very honey strong, with some herbs, grains, and light fruit rounding it out. I like the strong honey presence.

Boutip (6533) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle: Poured a pale yellow color mead with a nice pure white bubbly head with some retention. Aroma of light floral honey notes with some jasmine notes is quite delicate. Taste is also dominated by light floral honey notes with some subtle jasmine notes. Body is light with great carbonation. I enjoyed the balance of this mead and the fact that there was not too much residual sugar notes.

Spab (4081) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2014
650 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a murky honeyish orange/yellow with thin white head. Aroma is sweet honey, fruit and some flowers. Flavour has sweet honey comb, some fruity yeastiness and a little floral character. Pleasant enough.

Fantomasus (291) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Ummmm... Can’t believe this is a Rogue product. Pours a pale straw with NO HEAD. Pours like a Sprite or any cheap soda. What little aroma there is smells fresh. That’s about the peak of this beer. Taste has no balance. It’s all sweet and sour. It’s lemonade and Sprite. Palate is sticky and pasty. I hate it.

pictoman (1212) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 14, 2014
Poured from 650mL bottle. Hazy pale yellow with white head. Very cider-like. Lots of honey and quite floral, mild tea qualities. Quick finish, light body.

liquidhedonism (289) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - NOV 4, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2014 22 oz bottle. Aroma: obviously strong honey, but also floral with hints of SweetTarts candy. Taste/Palate: feels thin for a mead; starts sweet, bubbly, and crisp, and finishes tart and sweet, with a slight dryness in the aftertaste. This was an interesting experiment, but it?s not one I need to try again anytime soon.

julesjis (256) - Oregon, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Poured from a 22. OK it’s a mead. The aroma was actually pretty decent. It had a nice floral nose with hints of peaches. Taste is like eating a tube of lip gloss made for 8 year old girls. The aftertaste has the typical Rogue skunk. Must be that "free range coastal water". Somebody get me an IPA to wash this down!

Pours a semi-opaque light straw colour. Almost zero head. This one has heavy aromas of musky honey, honey comb, and sweet pineapple. Mouthfeel is light bodied and crisp. Tastes are lighter honey than the aroma, but still prevalent, married to sweet citrus. Some floral notes and tart green grapes. This is a light, crisp refreshing thirst quencher. If you’re looking for a change of pace, this might well fit the bill.
