Midas Touch Golden Elixir is a beverage based on the residue found on the drinking vessels in King Midas’ tomb. Our recipe highlights the known ingredients of barley, white Muscat grapes, honey and saffron. Somehwere between a beer, wine and mead, this smooth, dry ale will please with Chardonnay or I.P.A. drinker alike.

A golden ale with aromas of fruit and honey. Taste follows nose. Enjoyable but don’t know if I would drink it again.

Poured into a tulip. Golden honey color with basically no head (what little there was before it faded was white). Strong aromas of grapes and must that is more reminiscent of wine than beer. Drinks with a medium body and carbonation with a complex blend of flavors which accompanies a decided dryness. Palate is interesting as well as the sweetness comes through amidst the other flavors. Unlike anything I've drank before (and certainly not likely to become a staple) but it's a nice change of pace. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Golden with ample white head. Smell and taste dominated by honey, but much more drinkable than a mead. I was much more impressed by this than I expected I’d be, given my general preference for hoppy ales.

Bottiglia 33cl, comprata da eataly e bevuta a casa. Chiara con schiuma nn troppo persistente. Al naso miele. In bocca il corpo è pieno con carbonazione gradevole. Miele, moscato e mandorle, finale più amaro che invita a berne ancora. Buona ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

Bottle (12oz): Pours golden with white head. Smells and tastes like a boobly white wine with hops. Not bad is you like that sort of thing

Lizardking3 (126) - Springfield, Oregon, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Pours bright gold. Aroma is grapes and yeast. Taste is grapes and must upfront.... The honey immediately comes in after and lingers hard. This is completely dry, which is a little surprising considering grapes and honey. I don’t know if it’s the saffron or too much boil hops, but it’s a little too bitter on the back end. Almost pill like. Interesting drink though

Pretty good drink for a style that ran out of popularity a few thousand years ago. Pours gold. Lots of honey and light grapes. Light sour finish. Hard to detect the saffron. Bottle.

This beer has a strong, caramel start with a divergent finish in what can only be described as a medium moscato paired with subtle notes of ginger.

Gosto bom, rico e realmente próximo de uma IPA, um pouco doce e bem forte. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
