I picked Midas Touch from Dogfish Head as the first beer.  I have not had it before.  To be honest I waited to try this because of its cost.  I only have so many beer dollars.  I picked this beer because in theory its the oldest beer in the book.  Dogfish Head created this brew to try to recreate a beer found in the tomb of King Midas. You can read more here.

Tasting Notes:

Bottled on Date of 5-10-10 consumed 7-18-10 and poured into a wine glass.

First thought was this isn’t beer.  The beer has allegedly been a big favorite of champagne drinkers.  It seems to impart a lot of characteristics of champagne.  It comes across crisp and dry.  Definitely taste the grapes. I saw no lacing and little head.  I was impressed I think I will pick up a few more of these to have around.
