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.

Thanks OmegaX, this was a nice brew. The body was cloudy and had lots of carbonation - at least an inch of head with each pour! Aromas were herbal and full of yeast, lemongrass and bread. The taste was spicy as well with a delicate yeast character. Undertones of grapefruit, caramel and perhaps even salt make for a most interesting brew.

Bottle, 75cl, at TFODRBSG 2012. A big, creamy, off-white head forms and stays over an unclear, golden-orange body. Some lacings. Not sure about the aroma of this one, itís fruity and pleasant, but with something I canít really recognize. Herbal and lightly chalky maybe. Spiced hints. Quite dry on the palate, medium to full body. Quite bitter in the end, fruity and with some spicyness. A nice one, but nothing extraordinary going on. 120818

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.
