What do fresh button mushrooms taste like?

Sweet?

Salty?

Bitter?

Some combo of all three? Something else entirely?

I ask because I generally do not eat button mushrooms (fresh, or canned), and can't really recall what they *should* taste like. (FWIW, I eat and enjoy just about all other 'shrooms.)

But today I had some fresh button mushrooms that tasted like diluted licorice with hints of iodine solution.

Yuck. Just yuck.

So, what should fresh button mushrooms taste like?
