COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beard beer is brewed with a yeast created from Brewmaster John Maierís 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 youíll be surprised...

Bottle. Lemon and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Light lemon, barley malt and moderately bitter herbal hay flavor. Pleasant - if you can get past the beard thing.

Poured from tap into a pint glass at the brewery. It is a clear amber color with little head. Good taste. Don't know that I would order another one.

You should be so precious to fret about where the yeast comes from. This is pretty nice, although itís a little thin overall. Nice bitterness, nice aroma, decent carry and thoroughly acceptable.

Suttree (5186) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 19, 2014
To be honest, was hoping for something weirder, or at least terrible, so I could write a funny rating or something like that. But it isnít Itís actually kind of plain. I have better, I have worse.

Smells sour which is gross when you think about where the yeast comes from. Not a fan of this. On tap at track town.

AmericanHobo (48) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2014
Truly a wild ale. Very complex flavor. Aroma of a nice sour but unfortunately it would be better to sniff then consume. Yeast runs wild overpowering any real flavor. A good beer to avoid.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2014
[Tap] Hazy amber pour with a lasting white head. Sweet grains, yeast and clove in the aroma. Wheat malt, fruity esters, clove and raisin in the taste. Muddled flavor profile. Glad I didnít know about the beard yeast until just now.

Ed5388 (2144) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - APR 7, 2014
Sampled at AC Beerfest 2014. Poured a hazy gold color with a small off white head. Aroma of light citrus and caramel malt. Taste mimics the nose with faint citrus notes, caramel malt, and bitter grapefruit in the finish.

I should not have read the description for this beer. It may have skewed my rating. Canít get over the yeast came from someoneís beard.

Lagerboy (1256) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2014
Bomber. Unclear orange, off-white foam settles quickly. Fruity yeasty aroma. Tropical fruity yeasty taste, mild pale bready malts, some spice and citrus. Softer than average carbonation, medium bodied, lightly hopped. A nice enough easy quaff, though the premise (and the label) are far from appealing. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)
