Ginger Mead by Trafalgar Ales and Meads
I was introduced to mead on a brew tour, and it seemed pretty cool: alcohol derived from honey.
The ingredients in this particular mead I picked up seems so simple.
The taste is not as spicy as I thought it'd be, but there is a ginger taste. It sort of goes down like beer in bitterness, but finishes like wine, possibly because of the acidity. Beer grape juice comes to mind?! The honey is very light. I feel like it needs to be sweeter.
Pros: 8.5% alcohol/volume. Might go well in Coke.
Cons: Too much bitter without other flavours. Cork took me too much effort to remove; like hand-hurting effort. It's got nothing on the delicious iced tea mead I had in Boston.
Would I purchase this again? Probably not... I have to try everything else, and this ain't got nothing on my regular beer.
