Meadow Vista
Pictish Beast Braggot Mead

Category: Specialty Mead

Date Tasted:
Country: Canada
Alcohol: 10%
Silvery straw color. Aromas and flavors of caramel yogurt, onion bun, lager, dark roasted nuts, and honeyed cream cheese pastry with a satiny, crisp, effervescent, dryish light-to-medium body and a silky, delightful, medium-length finish. An interesting Braggot that neatly toes the line between a roasty Dunkel and a lighthearted Mead.
