This particular round of testing was quite good; wish I had proper glassware to figure out the mead to orange syrup ratio.

Experimenting with orange syrup...

Can't do anything about the lack of body, but damn, the flavor has developed rather nicely.
Most of the creepy crud stirred up while transferring to the keg has settled out. Need to find a reasonable orange syrup.
Didn't get the flavor I was hoping for, but the base mead is solid. Not competition-ready.
Chris S. is drinking a Traveling Salesman (Lemon Drop Remix) by Backyard Bruise
Found a few more bottles. Each one seems to have developed its own unique flavor...
4th pull. Good carbonation and improved mouth feel. Malt not especially assertive or well-rounded, but present.
First pull, no carbonation yet. Lacking a bit in body, but the flavor is quite good.

Seems I still had a bottle of the first batch. Gingerbread notes crept in, but otherwise aged well.
Has not aged well. Vegetal and pithy. >.

One of the last bottles. At 2 years old, it's become sharp, dry & boozy with wood grain notes. Still drinkable means good process.

Solid balance of clove & banana right into an almost-chewy dry bitterness, with a hint of yeast. The tall glass empties quickly...
First pull after kegging, no carb. Strong banana/clove light grain nose, light & somewhat chewy flavor, long dry finish.
