Bombus Insertis Beowulf Brew Mead (England: Mead – Batch 01: 12.5%?)

Made and kindly provided by the esteemed Paul Henderson

Visual: Pale lilac gold and clear without sediment.

Nose: Open oak cask, grain fields, light wave of alcohol and grapes/white wine.

Body: Clear honey, more of the grapes; slick. Very little alcohol kick. Very light

Finish: Light honey spread thinly on your tongue with a butter knife. Another fresh wine touch; very distinct grapes at the end.

Conclusion: A very light and slick mead, its alcohol punch virtually unnoticeable. Almost wine like but so very relaxing. Fine for summer drinking and watching the hours fall away.
