While you can only guess at the true authenticity of the origins of a beer like Midas Touch, there’s no denying how fun it is to try Traditional beer styles. As the name suggests, Midas Touch is gold-colored. As you might expect for a beer brewed with malt, grape must, and honey, Midas Touch ends up tasting like a mix of beer, wine, and mead. It’s fruity, semi-sweet, and a bit spicy. I couldn’t tell if the latter taste was from the hops or from the added spices. In any case, this is a refreshing brew that drinks easy and finishes bone dry. If Egyptian beer was truly like this, being paid with beer wouldn’t have been a bad deal.

Ordered at a restaurant and it came out in a tiny little choad glass that was adorable. Its aroma is a little sweet and syrupy. The appearance is golden and clear. The taste is sweet, spicy and meady with a lingering sweet honey aftertaste. Overall, this one was interesting, particularly historically, but it’s not something I would want to drink regularly and am honestly glad I got it at a bar as opposed to a 4 or 6 pack cause it was good as a one off, but isn’t something I would favor typically. Good for starting off a trio of reviews after a lovely night out with your beloved.

tapefuzz (921) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 29, 2017
12oz bottle. Pours clear copper with a moderate off-white head. Aroma is mostly honey and a good amount of grape with some toffee. Taste is a lot of honey, white grapes, spice, sweet malt, and some grainy hops. Lightly bitter, somewhat boozy, dry finish. Like a very malty/mead-y white wine. Light body bordering on light-medium. Medium carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. An interesting and easy to drink beer, but one that overstays its welcome a bit. Taste is a strong 6, too bad the grapes aren’t a bit brighter and the finish isn’t slightly cleaner.

Bottle. A- Honey, malty, grape must. A- Gold color, clear liquid, white head. T- Honey, grapes. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish. O- Lots of honey and definitely no saffron. A touch boozy too. A pretty mild beer but back in King Midas’ day this would’ve been great!
