Just had this on tap for the first time and it's even better than the bottled version. Midas has such complex flavors that just tickle every single taste bud. It goes down smooth and leaves a pleasant aftertaste on the tongue. If you see this on draft - GET IT

Easy drinking, not bitter. Flavors of grape and honey, but not overpoweringly sweet. Hard pressed to find a beer with a higher ABV and lower IBU.

L: Yellow gold. Suspended particles give a medium cloudy look.
S: Honey, skunky lager.
T: Light honey, some skunk. Grape.
F: Crisp, a little acidic bite.
O: Interesting. Definitely worth a try. Pretend you're a Pharaoh.

force a golden honey color, clear, not much head.
Smells of earth tones, pear, and Heather.
Tastes of white grape, honey and spice in the background.
Mouth feel is crisp.
Not a bad offering!

Honey and grape on the nose with some hints of the advertised spices. Fermented honey flavor plus butter, allspice, and raisins.

Could have been a dud bottle, this was bought in Australia, and was rather old.

This has got to be the smoothest beer to have ever been poured down. I wasn't too excited about the taste though, so it was a disappointment. I would have loved more grape flavor.
