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 beard beer taste like? try it, we think you’ll be surprised...

HuskerTan (1698) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Draft. A- Honey, slightly sweet, subtle fruits, wheat. A- Light amber color, hazy liquid, minimal white head. T- Slightly sweet, malty, boring. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. O- Glad I finally tried this one if for no other reason that I think it’s more of a novelty. Some honey on the nose and palate along with some tea or subtle floral notes. Otherwise not overly exciting but very drinkable.

Aroma: Hops, flowers, mango.
Appearance: Deep amber, with a light, white head.
Taste: Hops, mango, pineapple, and a very slight hint of coffee.
Palate: Bitter at first, with a lingering sweet finish. Medium body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: I bought this beer for the gimmick, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that this is a great beer. Interesting aromas, and clean, refreshing flavours make this quite a complex beer.
