Beer Tasting: Middle Ages Wailing Wench Ale
Middle Ages Brewing Co. - Wailing Wench Ale Have you tasted this beer? Let us know what you think. As a suggestion, try to keep it to as few as words as possible for each of the following; appearance, smell, taste, mouthfeel and drinkability. Appearance Bryan: settles down to a 1/2" (1.25 cm) head; dark coloring Adam: copper, persistent head Smell Bryan: sweet malty aroma at 50F; maintains the nose as it warms; not much in the way of hop aroma Adam: big nose, hoppy and sweet, better as it warms. I almost sucked up all that beer with my nose ;-) Taste Bryan: a trace of malt flavor upfront quickly turning to mouthful of hops, finishing with a bitter hop flavor Adam: cool = some malt & all hops, warmer = well balanced hops & malt Mouthfeel Bryan: smooth and full of both texture and taste Adam: felt like sand....OK...OK...it didn't. No note on mouthfeel. Drinkability Bryan: becomes even more balanced and drinkable as it warms after approximately 15 minutes Adam: Nothing offensive. Love that nose. Seconds? Bryan: Yes, and maybe even thirds. This beer makes me happy :) Adam: Yes, please.
