Tonight is a two-review night. It’s also a two-Dogfish Head night. Episode two is Dogfish Head Midas Touch. I just got done eating some heated-up pasta primavera. Hoping that the flavor clears out of my mouth so I can really taste the beer.
The first thing I noted (from the label) was that Midas touch has Saffron in it. For those of you unfamiliar, this is a VERY expensive Spanish spice. I once spent 30 minutes in a grocery store looking for it before asking a clerk and finding out that they keep it in the office under lock and key!
Lots of head on the Midas. I almost screwed it up and lost some on the counter, but the dome of foam settled just in time to avoid disaster.
Needed to cleanse my pallet before drinking. The pasta was too garlicy. On to the beer now.
Although the amount of saffron must be limited, I taste it. I couldn’t have picked it out unless the label told me. Otherwise, the beer is malty sweet. Not a hint of bitter. No where near as sweet as some of Dogfish Head’s other beer (e.g. Raison D’Etre).
Another excellent Dogfish Head beer in the bag.
