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.

Unfiltered golden pour. Paper white thick head with lots of lacing. Aroma of earthy spicy hops a mild fruity esters. Thick mouthfeel. Esters are focus in flavor. I get banana, apple, and some clove. Mild hop spice aroma comes through too. Fairly bitter finish. ---Rated via iPhone

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Poured into a tulip. Like just about every other JK beer I’ve had, this is overcarbonated. 3.25 A: Murky yellow brown color. Many fingers of foamy white head. Not going to mention retention because it was massively overcarbonated, but much of it did stick to the glass. 3.75 S: LIke JK’s other farmhouse brews, this has a ton of herbalness in it. I can pick out specific herbs too, but I don’t know what the hell they are called. Also getting a healthy dose of wildflowers, apple orchard, barnyard funk, and dry wood. Finally, plenty of earthiness makes this a dirty, rustic nose. 3.25 T: Tastes like it smells, except that there is too much damn yeast. It was too carbonated to properly decant this, so it has to be figured into the review. Still, it’s not too bad. Again, lots of herbalness. Wildflower, apple orchard, barn, wood. Earthy with a mild bitterness. 3.25 M: Medium body (would be lighter with less yeast I presume). Too much carbonation initially that I swirled to a manageable level. Spritzy. Would have been given a better score if it wasn’t overcarbed. 3.25 D: It’s not a bad brew, but the quality control at JK needs to improve. They need to let their beers finish fermenting before they bottle them. ★ 1,223 characters DavoleBomb, Aug 18, 2013
