Dry Mead

BJCP M1a

Overall Impression
Similar in balance, body, finish and flavor intensity to a dry white wine, with a pleasant mixture of subtle honey character, soft fruity esters, and clean alcohol. Complexity, harmony, and balance of sensory elements are most desirable, with no inconsistencies in color, aroma, flavor or aftertaste. The proper balance of sweetness, acidity, alcohol, and honey character is the essential final measure of any mead.
Ingredients
Standard description applies. Traditional Meads
feature the character of a blended honey or a blend of honeys.
Varietal meads feature the distinctive character of certain
honeys. Show meads feature no additives, but this distinction is
usually not obvious to judges.
