Moonlight mead is an ale that can be brewed with the Cooking skill at level 44 or higher, granting 380 experience. Drinking this heals 4 hitpoints, and when doing so, the game remarks that "It tastes like something just died in your mouth." It can be bought for 5 coins from Roavar in the Hair of the Dog tavern, located in Canifis.

- Moonlight mead might be a reference to moonshine, a common name for home-distilled alcohol.
