My dad tried this beer and exclaimed, "Has anyone else noticed this tastes like wine white and cherrios milk." He is the cheerio king. Medium-bodied; dry and sweet. Honey, plastic, paint, sugar and alcohol.

annunz123 (948) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Aroma has honey and a little apple. Flavor is mild and smooth. A little drying alcohol in the finish, and a surprisingly creamy mouthfeel. Not bad, but not great either.

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAY 21, 2012
750 ml bottle. Pours a pale gold with no head. This is a still mead. The aroma is lovely with nice clean sweet honey and perhaps a few floral notes. The flavor is much more watered down and the flavor is short-lived on the palate. Lightly sweet as the name suggests.

MeadMe (1602) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Pours golden a shade lighter than the dry mead. Aromas of honey and wax. Flavor is very watery. Honey and water that is about it. Mildly sweet but overall fairly tasteless.

phaleslu (9384) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Taste from a 750 ml bottle at the meadery. Looks just like the Dry Mead, with a pale golden hue and legs, no head. Aroma of honey, white wine, and oak. Flavor of honey, white wine, apples, oak, and faint floral notes. Medium-bodied, with a smooth, sweet mouthfeel and no carbonation. Adds a little complexity and balance to the Dry Mead base.
