It pours a light golden and leaves the same color body very clear. Carbonation rises at a moderate pace. A half centimeter white head appears and immediately dissipates. The smell has the honey up front. The taste is more combined as the honey is tasted yet the saffron, and hops are noted as well. The palate is about a light to medium with a great balance between the harshness of saffron and hops to the honey and grapes. There is a slightly sticky aftertaste and a wet finish. The alcohol is not felt at all. Overall, Iím impressed. Iíd pick this one up again.
Short head, light color, delightful nose. Floral taste up front and lingering honey notes at finish. Thorough enjoyable, refreshing, light summer beer.

Pours a clear, copper-gold, with minimal head. Aroma has some fruit, but is primarily grassy. Flavor is also grassy, but with some sweetness, a touch of wine-sourness, and an almost witbier-like chemically aftertaste. Interesting, though not something Iíd want on a regular basis. koleminer20 (3498) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 16, 2017
12 oz bottle shared by ebone1988. The pourbusba darker golden orange with a thin ring of head that leaves a few soapy spots of lace. The aroma is really sweet. There is a strong honey sweetness and lots of dark fruits. Itís got a strange herbal aspect to it that Iím not crazy about. The flavor is much of the same. The sweetness and the honey really work with the dark fruits. Itís got a little zing of herbalness and a touch of honey. The mouth feel is light and clean with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly malty with a dark fruit and honey note on the back end. The sweetness of the fruits is strange. Not the best beer, thatís for sure. ebone1988 (1858) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - APR 16, 2017
Bottle shared with koleminer20. For the book. Aroma is sweet, raisins, bread, dark fruit, sugar, honey, not bad. Appearance is amber golden, off white head, mostly clear. Taste is honey, dry, raisins, sweet, dark fruit, bready, not bad. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, almost woody and raisin dry aftertaste. Overall, itís not nearly as bad as expected, but Iím happy to have gotten it out of the way. MetalNHopHead (1918) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - APR 16, 2017
While you can only guess at the true authenticity of the origins of a beer like Midas Touch, thereís 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. Itís fruity, semi-sweet, and a bit spicy. I couldnít 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 wouldnít have been a bad deal. meccahh69lol (196) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - APR 13, 2017
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 itís 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 isnít something I would favor typically. Good for starting off a trio of reviews after a lovely night out with your beloved.
