Style: Braggot
 
Style Information
The Braggot is a beer and mead variant that was originally brewed with honey and hops. Later examples of the style used honey and malts, with hops being optional. The color should have notable clarity, and range widely from light yellow to dark brown to black. The color primarily depends on the malt and honey used in the brewing process. The aroma should have a decent tone of sweetness from the honey, but that will vary based on the strength of the beer. The malt character should also be evident. The taste should show a balance between beer and mead characteristics. The flavors vary based on the base beer style and the honey used. Hop bitterness will also vary based on the base beer style. The feel also varies widely based on the base beer style, ranging from light to full.
