Among the many spirits Liz purchased prior to our trip, she got some mead for us to try out. Ever since we had a taste of it when we met our neighbors Mark and Anna, we’ve been curious to try more. Mead is the new craft beer, it seems.
I got a kick out of the name, in that it seemed like something that did not really pair with the holiday season. In my head, all I could hear was someone in a death metal band growling “Merry Christmas” over and over again.
I like that the name of the mead is “Necro” but there’s still a lovely bee on the bottle cap. In hindsight, I guess I should have read more about what’s in this thing – but it was a mixture of various fruits.
Comapred to what I’ve tasted before, this had less of a honey flavor – and a bit more mango. And was carbonated! It was actually quite good, and made me want to try out more (I think the sweeter meads are not quite for me).
