I picked up this classy-looking bottle from the Sky River Meadery in Washington State from at our local Wine and Beer store.
It's from a meadery that I have not tried before and while they had "Sweet" and "Semi-Sweet" on the shelf they also make a "dry" and a selection of interesting flavors, including Blackberry, Ginger and Rose.
So here is what we thought of this traditional style mead....
Mead Men Notes:
A solid semi-sweet, semi-dry still mead. Well balanced with an aftertaste that lingers a bit long on the tongue. Lightly musty nose.
A pretty standard semi-sweet, still mead. I found a little light on the flavor but very drinkable. Great with spicy food and for drinking on a warm evening. Definitely warrant a good chill before consuming.

Located near the Crystal Lake in northwest Michigan, St Ambrose Cellars started off as a collection of bee-keepers who wanted to have more fun with their honey.
With a wide selection of Michigan fruits (including arguably the best cherries in the world) at their disposal, Ambrose Cellars specializes in a wonderfully diverse range of Melomels.
