sounds really good!!
I actually love mead, and I understand the 'buttery' taste you're talking about exactly, many honeys have that.
Boy, I'd really like to try your mead!!
This friend of mine I referred to earlier wound up joining this thing called a "mead bar". It was really more of a club than anything else, but they
had a building which looked like a bar inside (it was a bar actually) except everyone brought their own different strains of mead in to share with
each other. It was really a pretty cool atmosphere! He got into making mead too, but always said he wasn't very good at it (and this guy was a true
brew-meister when it came to beer). I went there once, but it was on some specialty night where all these mead makers brought in these meads which
were flavored with other stuff (berries, citrus, etc.). There was only one guy there who had just straight up mead, and I only got just a little
taste. It seemed really good, but the other stuff was really, really, sweet. My buddy said it wasn't really a good night to get the taste for mead
itself. Unfortunately, I never made it back there. (It was kind of a closed deal, members only, due to liquor laws and the like).
A lot of the guys who were in this club were also really into the whole Renaissance thing. They'd show up in the traditional dress, talk in the
period tongues and had all the traditional flasks and mini-kegs (whatever you call them). It was kind of fun (at first), but I wasn't really into
that...I just wanted to try the mead!! (Plus, it was kinda loud; I guess everyone yelled in those days! That, or they were all deaf back then.
Kinda felt like a pirate convention. LOL!) Lots of "yee's", "yeah's", "My Lord's" and "Blessed upon thee's".
"Blessed upon thee, thine mead hast given yours truly great bounty! I wish you to partake in thine mead as it would give me great pleasure and
most honor, my Lordship!"
I found myself always waiting for an "ARRRRRRGH"
in there somewhere, but I guess it was the wrong genre. Anyway, I digress.
