Wing Man Bar and Grill (Pennsburg) - Hot Wings
The texture is of a crispy wing with a crusty shell that keeps in the succulent, juicy chicken pieces. It almost seems a tad overdone but it grows on you. Crispy, nearing flaky but with an appealing crunch. These could be perceived as bordering "dry" on the outer shell but inside is a delicate sweetness that is reserved for those who enjoy wings.- 3.5
The sauce is one of the best components of this wing. Not overly hot but certainly hot enough. This flavor is actually in the middle of the heat spectrum according to Wing Man's menu with flavors such as Suicidal being hotter and "Tough Guy" being the hottest offering. - 4
The flavor is like Franks mixed with a butter and buttermilk sweetness in the background...could be coming from the crispy crust too but it all plays together. Nice chicken punch atop the melding of hot sauce and crispy skin. - 4
The edibility is really good. Like I said, there's some heat from the pepper sauce along with some sweetness from the breading and juicy chicken all coming together. I could hang out here all day long watching sports and eating these tasty wings. I should actually attempt it at some point. - 4
Overall, I'm looking forward to getting back into these wings. If it were a closer ride, I would be there several times per month. I'm happy for the locals but bummed for me for not having easier access. It's not too far of a ride but 80 minutes round trip is a sacrifice at the end of the day. Is it worth it? You bet. Check out the wings from Wing Man Bar and Grill when you're traveling North of Green Lane Reservoir, or Red Hill. - 4
Total Score: 3.9/5
The beer: Sam Adams Noble Pils
Appears a transparent gold with a had of pillowy white fluff that slowly fades. Scattered chunks of white lacing are clinging all around the glass.
Smell is of pungent herbs, citrus, flowers, perfume, and wet hay.
Taste is of the aromas with a sweet biscuit and herbal blast being the key features of this beer.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, semi sweet, spritzy, and dry.
Man, this could be an actual beer lover's destination if they wanted. These guys are only using the order guide from A/B and Origlio, so you'll find some Magic Hat on draft, and Sam Adams with a few Victory brews in bottles. If only...If...only.
