I feel a photograph and short review of the beer received should be a rule also.

I think reviews should be mandatory. Im sure people put a lot of effort into choosing the beers so its nice to have that effort appreciated.

It was awesome. There was a spiced one that I wasnt keen on, had a ginger or something to it (I forget the exact ingredients) and I have a strong aversion to it in any form. The rest was beautiful though, I had no idea that mead tasted like that, I just always assumed it was an old fashioned heavy ale kind of thing.

You too Falsey ?

I've never been much of a Mead fan, always find it too sweet and a bit sickly.

It was quite sweet but chilled super cold it was really refreshing. I could only clear one bottle at a time though.

nice one Falsey glad you liked it!
Errkal remember there's 2 types of mead - the heavily honeyed one that's like desert wine (closest i can compare to) and then there's the carbonated version, which is more like ginger beer/lager
here's the one i got Falsey: https://www.gosnells.co.uk/

Looked it up (finally, doing untapp'd for all these years has a use) was "London Mead" and I gave it half a star. :lol:
