Mead/Melomel, 10.6% ABV.
This mead pours a crystal clear, beautiful orangey golden body.
The aroma is surprisingly faint, but there are definitely plums present. The honey is further in the back.
There isn’t much intensity in the flavour either, and the profile is as simple as in the aroma: plums and faint honey. But I like plums, and I like honey, so I do enjoy what’s in my glass. Heavy sweet taste with a light acidic tail.
It’s a full-bodied brew with a syrupy texture.
Conclusion: a boring, modest and simple mead. That is quite good.
