COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Bearded Lady is a bit of a departure from the Good People norm. While most of our beers are robust, bold, and hoppy, the Bearded Lady is smooth and drinkable. Never fear, it still has the quality craftsmanship you expect from Good People. Our take on the Wheat Beer, a perennial favorite, we hope to have made a beer that is both flavorful and refreshing. The light body is complemented with just a hint of hops and just a twinge of tartness that give the Bearded Lady a subtle citrus flavor that leaves you wanting more. While we were not trying to reinvent the wheel or change the history of beer, we wanted to make a beer that was refreshing and highly drinkable for the warm Alabama summer, yet not sacrifice the integrity of anything with the Good People label. This is a beer we would be proud to hoist over our lawnmowers and say, “Today grass…you are mine!” With the Bearded Lady, we hope we have done just that. We hope you think so too.

ChainGangGuy (4351) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Appearance: Server up a lightly hazed, pale yellow body with a thin coating of white head. Good lacing.

Smell: Ultra soft malt, a bit of wheat, a whisper of basic lemon. It’s a wheat ale, alright!

Taste: Particularly pale wheat character with just a little bit of sweetness. Light lemon, very low bitterness. Drying, faintly lemony finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: As a light, refreshing, quaffable beer it works.
