    I hear it's super sweet which I wouldn't like. But I want to drink what the Vikings had!

    I did a mead tasting before at a Mead/winery nearby. It is very sweet and thick like cough syrup, did not really enjoy.

    I have. It's made with honey, which explains the thickness.

    Actually, my bride used to hang out with a bunch of medieval re-creationists and made her own mead as well as other period correct beverages. They drank some interesting stuff back in those days.

    A VW bus camping friend was a home brewer and brought along some honey mead made with champagne yeast on one trip. It wasn't thick or heavy at all, more like beer with a light, sweet taste. Really unique. Never tasted anything like it before or since.

    This but I think that just saying it is awful is understating it.
