Year Round

This was the first beer in our Ancient Ales series.

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.

Look
A nice gold coper color. Clear. No real head, immediately disapates.
Smell
Light sweet smell. Smell is not very powerful or impressive
Taste
Floral taste, with ineresting spices. Creative well done beer with a slight alcoholic taste.
Feel
Warming beer with crisp lasting taste.
Drinkability
Crisp, balanced, fruty, floral taste, not too hoppy. Taste not that overpowering of a taste but incredibly complex.

Look
Gold color and clear, barely any lasting head and vaguely any lacing
Smell
hints of hops and spice
Taste
a mix of fruits and herbs
Feel
Smooth but slightly warming, medium body with a long finish
Drinkability
It was a awkward fruity/spiced beer. While it was a nice concept, I would not run out and buy a four pack.
