Wine gets better with age, but does beer ? How do you think a beer that is 170 years old would taste?
Finnish researchers say they may be able to recreate beer from the 1840s after finding living bacteria in beer from a shipwreck discovered near Aland islands, Finland.
Researchers analyzed two bottles of beer, which they admitted "had not stood the test of time well" but retained a pale golden color and could originally have had hints of rose, almond and cloves.
"Based on the chemical analysis we made of the beer and with help from a master brewer it would be possible to try to make beer that would resemble it as much as possible," Annika Wilhelmson from VTT technical research centre of Finland told Reuters.
