Name – Midas Touch
Country – United States
Type – Spiced Beer
Appearance – Poured a orangish amber color that was very bubbly. There really wasn’t much head on the first bottle I had but the second gave a small little one but was gone in a jiff.
Smell – Very sweet and a little heavy on the alcohol in the smell. I pick up grapes that are similar to a white wine and some other spices.
Taste – Sweet indeed. The white grapes along with a sweet honey taste. Alcohol can definitely be tasted but it’s not too much to make it stand out over the other flavors.
This was a very different beer than I have ever really had. I’ve had beers with a grape taste in them before but not this white grape flavor. It was very enjoyable and a great sipping beer while I watched Beer Wars on DVD. Another great brew from the folks at Dog Fish Head.
Overall Grade – A
