Here in the next week or so I intend on placing an order with Sam's or Binny's to replenish a few things not availably locally. At the same time I would like to order a few bottles of mead. I've wanted to try mead for some time but the only stuff locally available is Chaucer's and I have a sneaking suspicion it might be better left on the shelf. Am I wrong? I would like to try non-adjunct medium dry to medium sweet quality examples of this venerable beverage.
What should I look for in a mead? I'm assuming it's more like wine than beer. Is that correct?
