Water, honey, yeast. No additives. 
I tend to mistrust the 16th century trend to call anything with honey

I lean towards long. Short I'd throw more into the beer cross breeds.

Mild sweet to sweet, but again short of 16th century trends towards suryp.
When working with a substance that dervies its flavor mainly from its
sugars, I find the concept of a dry mead to be an oxymoron.
