COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beard beer is brewed with a yeast created from Brewmaster John Maier’s beard. No need to freak out, brewers have used wild yeasts in beer making for centuries. John has had the same old growth beard since 1978 and for over 15,000 brews, so it is no great surprise that a natural yeast ideal for brewing was discovered in his beard. What does bread beer taste like? try it, we think you’ll be surprised...

From 22oz bottle. Was suggested by a beer vendor of good repute - try it and let me know what you think... Aroma and taste of a really good lager, with maybe a touch of Scottish ale. Interesting beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is Belgian yeast, peppery esters, and a hint of floral back end. Taste follows with a lemon sweetness in the middle. Not bad, interesting; weird to think I’m drinking part of this guy’s beard.

22oz bottle. hazy gold beer with a swirling, angry, carbonation bubbles and a small, stable white head. aroma of tropical pineapple fruity hops, vanilla, lemon. a dry finishing beer with a clean aftertaste. the aggressive carbonation appearance in the glass actually palates quite nice. flavor is lightly sweet from cakey, doughy, malt flavors and tropical hop notes and yeast. who knew maiers beard was belgian! turns out really good.

Bottle:   Dark straw, golden hue, thin to moderate sudsy white head, little lacing.   Soft bready nose, a little musty, doughy, and yeasty.   Bready up front, a little mealy, light to moderate sweetness.   Seems like a very dull Belgian Golden.   A bit flat on the tongue, body and moutfheel are moderate.   Very faint honey like sweetness.   Lingering mealy, yeasty, and doughy characteristics.   Not bright or bubbley, so don’t be looking to it for that.   Moreso flatter, a bit more chewy, with doughy notes.   Tiz okay.

Pint on tap. Hazy orange-golden with a small ring of cream. Nose is a bit of funk with sourish lemon and toasted bread. Tastes the same at first, but as I get halfway through some light fruit notes come in and round this into a mild fruity, Wit-like character. Light-medium body is balanced and has a little acidic tingle along with a smooth, average level of carbonation.

Bomber from Capone’s shared at Craft Ale House Terrific Tuesday. Poured hazy daek golden with off-white head. Nose was hopcitrus, pale malt, florals and some sweetness. Tasted hopcitric, with notes of pale malt, hops, citrus, and a floral fruity finish. Pretty complex, and pretty damned delicious.

On tap at Rogue, San Francisco. A more or less clear one, golden in color and with a small, white head. Pine cones and flowers in the aroma, some malt notes. Good bitterness in the flavor, with pale malts, pine cones and some flowers. Medium body, very soft carbonation. An easy drinkable and quenching beer. 130805

Tap @ OBF... Poured pale golden-amber with a thin head. Estery, yeast spiced aroma. Mouthfeel was fizzy and highly carbonated. Tasted bitter, came off sort of astringent, but that astringency faded as it warmed. Leafy, herbal, vegetal notes with a grainy finish. Meh.
