Dogfish Head Midas Touch Beer Review

Article by FisterRoboto of


$12.99/Four Pack

Style: Spiced/Herbed Beer

9% ABV

This sweet yet dry beer is made with ingredients found in 2,700-year-old drinking vessels from the tomb of King Midas. Somewhere between wine and mead, Midas will please the chardonnay and beer drinker alike.

Serve at 45-50 Degrees

Enjoyed from a pint glass

A: Pours a golden transparent color like apple juice. Minimal lacing with lots of bubbles.

S: Strong aroma of grapes, subtle white wine and faint biscuity notes – not a lot going on here.

T: Grape, honey, earthy herbs, alcohol is present in the finish. Refreshing, but underwhelming.

M: Highly carbonated. I’m not a fan of the big bubbles, but this works in the big picture. Very crisp.

O: DFH takes big risks with a lot of these bombers and they occasionally pay off. Midas Touch doesn’t rank amongst their finer offerings, but it’s an interesting brew nonetheless.

  1. I’ve Never Spent $13 On A 4-Pack Of Beer, Regardless Of Where/When It Came From.
    Bet It Made You Feel REALLY FANCY, Eh?!
    I Woulda Felt Fancy.
    Yeah, I Bet You Felt Fancy, Also.

    • Totally, People in line behind me gasped in disbelief as I handed the cashier my card.

      • The Gasping Was So You Didn’t Hear The Brick They Shit Hit The Floor, Dude!
        I Feel Fancy Just TALKING ABOUT A $13 4-Pack, Fo SHO, Sir!

        Here, You’ll Appreciate This One.

        I Went Out-N-About One Night To A Social Gathering At A Local Drinkin’ Establishment.
        A Seemingly Nice Guy Came Up To Me And Said…
        “If You Could Have ANYTHING In This Place, What Would You Wish For OR Want?”
        I Said…
        “So I’m Wishing, Eh? Then I’d Want One Of Those HUGE Long-Islands! That Would Be Kinda Cool! It’s Been A Long LONG Time.”
        About 10 Minutes Later, The Guy Returned, And Was Toting About TWO Large Long-Islands. Those Things Were Like $7 APIECE!
        He Said, “Wish No More, Good Sir!” Then Tried To Hand One To Me.
        I Simply Shook My Head And Replied…
        “Dude, I Haven’t Had A Drink Of Booze Since 2009! I Thought We Were Doing Some Wishful Thinking?”
        He Honestly Appeared CRUSHED…
        …Until He Saw Someone Else Without A Drink, And Then THOSE TWO WENT HOME TOGETHER!
        I Was Crushed For About 30-Seconds…
        …Then Realized I Knew No-One There, And I Went Home.
        THERE. That’s My Cute Sunday Confession hehehehe

        Rest Well, Sir!
        Monday’s Comin’ Soooooooon!

      • LOL Brad, you are hilarious. My favorite January release, a double IPA from Bell’s, called Hopslam, is $17.99 a sixer…and I bought two and a half cases of it. It’s a looooong time until January again.
