Hoptimistic Orange – Hopped Pale Mead (5.5% abv)

This is the missed summer of 2020. It will make you think of that holiday you wanted to take, and then help you forget about it it. 

Loaded with Simcoe and Mosaic hops, the bitterness is complimented well with flavours of orange zest.  

We use honey from a local apiary no more than 10 miles from Birmingham, where this mead is made. 

Honey BaseMulti-floral
ColourPale, Hazy –  but can clear if left in the fridge for a day
NoseHop forward, citrus, mango, pineapple
Tasting NotesHighly addictive. It is zesy and fruity at first, bitter and boozy going down.
