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. Its got a strange herbal aspect to it that Im not crazy about. The flavor is much of the same. The sweetness and the honey really work with the dark fruits. Its 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, thats for sure.

ebone1988 (1760) - 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, its not nearly as bad as expected, but Im happy to have gotten it out of the way.

While you can only guess at the true authenticity of the origins of a beer like Midas Touch, theres 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. Its fruity, semi-sweet, and a bit spicy. I couldnt 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 wouldnt have been a bad deal.

meccahh69lol (123) - 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 its 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 isnt something I would favor typically. Good for starting off a trio of reviews after a lovely night out with your beloved.

tapefuzz (372) - 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 arent a bit brighter and the finish isnt 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 wouldve been great!
