Dry Mead, like a single-variety scotch is the purest expression of meads. The first time we tried a great homebrewed dry mead, we found ourselves reaching for words to describe the unmistakable flavor of honey without the sweetness. Look for light honey flavors and the crisp, dry finish that characterizes meads of this style. A dry mead on our radar is the Honeymaker from Portland-based Maine Mead Works, which won the 2012 Mazer Cup. [mainemeadworks.com]
