COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mad Meg is simple in terms of ingredients with French pilsner malt, wheat, a touch of caramunich and acidulated malt, Czech Saaz hops and our farmhouse yeast. It is golden colored and quite strong at over 9% ABV. The palate intertwines delicate farmhouse esters with earthy, spicy hops and clean malt flavors.

Bottle at home with friends. Poured a deep copper color with a huge frothy white head. Floral hops, caramel, citrus, light funk, and a touch of figs in the aroma. Taste is funky, green apples, pear, citrus, spice, and biscuit with a light bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium with high carbonation. Pretty nice.

Trade from rougeau13 - thanks! Pours caramel orange with a huge white head. Smells clean, crisp, grassy, and lightly spicy. Taste is slightly brett-y, some citrus. Very refreshing for 9%, as well. Very satisfying.

750 ml bottle poured into a Jester King goblet/globe glass. Pours a hazy orangish gold capped by a bright white two and half finger head with a large amount of lacing present as the head recedes, great retention. This brew is extremely well-carbonated no extra effort will be needed in achieving an adequate head on the pour. The nose has fruit, floral, and grassy notes, and the distinctive smell of farmhouse yeast. Opens with a some fruit, a bit of citrus, apricot, and perhaps some peach which melds with earthy yeast and finishes dry. Average mouthfeel, abundant carbonation, fairly slick. The 9.6% is clearly evident with the alcohol present midpalate through the finish. I enjoyed this brew however it is quite boozy; so much so that I feel that some of the other important aspects of the brew were overshadowed.

Another fine beer from Jester king. Not my favorite style, but the spices and hops hide the alcohol well.

jmgreenuk (4617) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle at the Beer Temple Amsterdam. Cloudy amber pour. Minor head, no lacing. Sour, uninspiring aroma. Taste much better. Would say more but ran out of beer! Rather expensive here in Holland at 20 Euros a bottle and probably not worth it, but nice to taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
