Milton’s Madness I Said NO Salt! By B. Nektar Meadery is a 14% Agave Mead/Melomel made with Lime Juice, Lime Zest & Orange Zest
Hello, B. Nektar fans, what’s happening? Did you see the memo about the margarita-style wine cocktail? You see we’re putting this bottle out in the market, so if you could just go ahead and buy one, that would be great. Mmkay? oh, and uh, if some no-talent ass clown asks you if you have a case of the Mondays, don’t set the building on fire. Fix the glitch and avoid confrontation whenever possible. Terrific, thanks.
Damn it feels good to B. Nektar.
Office Space is an awesome movie. Some beers have come out in the past to theme with the movie. But this is the first time I see a mead, and damn, what a mead! One made with the intension of being close to a margarita as possible. Well, it is more of a melomel as the mead did ferment with Agave and fruit. I think the fact that since this is to pay tribute to Milton and his stapler, it really made me want to get it. It is a pricey mead but I do crazy things sometimes for the site and the fans that read my reviews. Appreciation before purchase is pretty important to the consumer base. So let’s see how this one goes, Salud!

Finished with rich Key lime pie flavors lingering with rich lechugilla agave nectar juice, salty hints, oranges, stone fruit, dark fruit notes and tropical fruit hints. Slightly boozy in the aftertaste but not detracting from the flavors despite the ABV, Super Clear Pale lemon and lime green color body, smooth, refreshing and syrupy mouthfeel and a moderate to sipping drinkability.
Taste just like a margarita if was blasted into the wine category with pure lime and agave goodness. What really takes this mead or melomel to the top is its very rich flavors. It is almost like a Margarita, without the salt ofcourse. While it does have some fruity complexity, the intention and the theme is what really drives it home. This and the fact that it is a pure Agave mead also sets it perfectly in the style of what they were going for. I highly recommend it and if you can get this goodness on tap, the better!
Midori from Space Patrol Luluco was used in this pairing to mainly go with the colors of the beer. Mainly Green as Midori is Japanese for Green. However, the sour and sweet like demeanor of Midori is pretty unique in the show and fitting in for the stubborn and whiney Milton was perfect to go with the overall pairing. The fact that I found some of the perfect beach pictures further enhances the eye candy to make it a great pairing.
