Well, its a lot better than drinking mead while fighting :-)

However, i was more interested in a mead that I could drink while enjoying 
the honey flavor but in the easiness of a beer.  The 15 percent alcohol 
meads that I have been making are great as an after dinner or as a warm-up 
for party, but for a sit around and watch the game on tv, they are not 
really adequate, as their punch is a bit too much.  I would like to keep 
the flavor, but mainly lower the alcohol content.
