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

Label:
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.

==Introduction==
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!

Aromas:
Rich Agave, lemons, limes, honey, Key Lime Pie, Margarita notes, tequila, wild flower honey, dragon fruit, guava, mango hints, stone fruit peach, white wine, green grapes, red grapes, oranges, tangerines, kumquats, lychees, passion fruit hints, mint, salty tejuino hints, cherries, plum, raspberries and lechugilla Agave juice.

Flavors:
Rich Key Lime Pie, Agave, Tequila, Margarita, Rich Honey, apples, lechugilla Agave juice, salty hints, wine grapes, stone fruit peach, white wine, green grapes, red grapes, oranges, tangerines, kumquats, lychees, passion fruit hints, mint, lemons, dark fruit cherry, plum, raspberry hints, white grapes, concorde grapes, mezcal notes, vanilla, wild flower honey, dragon fruit, guava, mango hints, kiwi, honey dew melon, sour apple, lemon and lime candies, whip cream and lemon merengue pie.

Aftertaste:
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.

Overall:
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!

Anime Corner:
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.

The Zombies Take Manhattan Imperial Zombie Killer by B. Nektar Meadery

The Zombies Take Manhattan Imperial Zombie Killer by B. Nektar Meadery is a 12%ABV Imperial Mead fermented with Apple, honey and cherries added then aged in rye whiskey barrels

Label: 
We thought we had them under control. The antidote was working. But life, or even death, finds a way. After a year of successful treatments, their bodies stopped responding and grew nearly twice their normal size. Now they’ve overrun the city. I fear it’s too late for mankind. They’re coming… B. Afraid
___

Thus begins, the second chapter in the story of the zombie killers. Equipped with a sweeter and stronger tasting arsenal, I am sure will be awesome. This is the second Mead I get to try and the barrel aged version of the one I had reviewed which was very delicious. Check out the first chapter here: https://brewerianimelogs.wordpress.com/2013/09/12/zombie-killer-cherry-cyser-by-b-nektar-meadery/

Aromas are of vanilla, strong cinnamon, apples, cherries, raspberries, rye bread notes, whiskey, green tea, chamomile, hibiscus, caramel, mint, flowers, brown sugar and oak

The flavors are of rye bread, rye whiskey (not over powering at all but delicious), apples, dark cherry and raspberry yogurt, cherry cobbler, vanilla, cinnamon, mint, chamomile, hibiscus, butterscotch, slight smokey from the oak, pine tree, spices, brown sugar and flowers.

The after taste is of oak, cinnamon, apples, cherry and rye taste. No alcohol presence in the taste, going down, Nothing!! This is way to easy too drink, way too easy for it’s own good. I said it’s own good, not mine. If were to drink 6 of these I would become a zombie and I wouldn’t even know it

Overall, it went past the original. The insane part of this mead is that the whiskey is very hidden. So hidden that it is kind of dangerous as it is very smooth. No alcohol burn no nothing. The only part that is strong is the rich and delicious flavors. The second and possibly the last chapter in the zombie series for B. Nektar brings forth some really undead and unbelievable tale of a mead. Let’s just put it this way, for 12%ABV, I get slighter alcohol strength to some degree in like let’s say barrel aged beers. For those I don’t, they did an awesome job with their complex blend. This may not be super complex like a special Barrel aged stout for example, but it becomes champion of fooling the population. No wonder the zombies took over.

Label:
Dedicated to the freaks and geeks! What started as a top-secret experiment with Michigan honey, cherries and apple cider became a viral epidemic. It won’t be easy to service, so grab your weapons and don’t forget this bottle for backup! Serve cold…. zombies hate the cold…. B. Ware GrrrHaarrhUrrgh…

So here is my first attempt a reviewing a Mead. A Mead (according to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mead) is an alcoholic beverage made by fermenting honey and water. Honey and water can also be added to a grain mash then strained after fermentation. Some people add spices, fruits and other ingredients to create different types of meads. So in the list of different type of Alcoholic beverages, this is basically a honey wine. Sweet stuff, expect it that way

Aromas are of apple jacks, cinnamon, cherry, flowers, vanilla, honey, hibiscus, chamomile, grapes, raspberries, cranberries, light biscuit notes and mint

Flavors are of rich tart black cherry yogurt, apples, cinnamon, vanilla notes, honey, Jamaica (Hibiscus Flowers drink), chamomile tea notes, elderflower notes, biscuit bread notes, raspberries and cherry cobbler at the end.

Aftertaste is quite sweet with honey lingering and tart cherry presence. Very easy drinking, sweet but not ultra sweet. The honey and spices give it a nice mellow flavor which doesn’t over power with too much sweetness. The level of sweetness actually seems very natural

Overall, this is a very amazing, what can I say. I could drink this all the time. It is almost like borderline cider and wine but rich in honey. Find this in time for the apocalypse before it is over and they are all gone. The Zombies have taken over Manhattan is the next chapter in this crazy episode of Mead releases of the apocalypse. Don’t Miss it, it will be awesome!!!
