COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beard of Zeus is a super hoppy India style Pale Lager. We heavily hopped the final runnings of a Peaches and Créme batch with Zeus hops and then lagered it. Small amounts of bitter orange peel was added to provide subtle sweet flavors to the beer and enhance the aromas of the Zeus hops.

Had high hopes based on the score. This is definitely not going to rank as a favorite. Pours a light orange, with a head that quickly disappears to lacing. Didn’t get much out of the nose. light citrus. Has a hoppy and citrus taste, but is very watery. Overall, this is a pass

Loads of citrus zest blended with flavors of grainy bread, floral hops, and a crisp pine finish. Nice hop bitterness throughout.

Bottle from Siciliano’s. Pours golden with a thin white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. A bit of orange on the nose. There’s a hint of floral on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid but nothing spectacular.

12oz bottle, big thanks to umich03jm. Date on the bottle reads 9/24/14. Totally hazy orange color. Thin off-white head. Decent ridges of lace. Light to medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation, light soft, with a lightly slick finish. Big orange peel, zesty flavor, kind of spicy. Moderate bitter taste, lighter sweet. Pretty assertively hoppy, big citrus and spicy hop notes. Towards the end, good grassy and herbal hop flavor comes out. The flavor of a 7% IPA, impressive to pull off at just 4.5%. And the fact that it’s technically a lager is pretty sneaky too, I would have never guessed... Very well executed! With the orange peel and spicy hop, honestly it drinks kind of like a white IPA, which I don’t entirely mind in this instance. Coincidentally, I happen to have a white IPA from Shorts in the fridge right now. Probably what I’ll drink next!

A Premium Lager from a premium trader, thanks Jason! Pours orange hold with a white head that quickly fades to a ring and a dusting. Aroma is white bread, orange, slightly dank. Malt backbone is light, basically disappears behind orange citrus hop. Orange peel bitter in the finish. This is a tasty IPL.

Poured a light cloudy orange color with aromas of bread malts, light coriander, some orange peel and light citrus. Flavors are bread and oranges, light hop presence, bitter aftertaste, not the best ipl on the market but decent.

chucklemation (566) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Pours an orange-yellow with a thin white foam head. Aroma is a combination of orange peel and bread that comes off almost skunky. Flavor is similar, but with a mix of sweet orange and bitterness. Very interesting, and overall pretty good.

The Beard of Zeus pours a mostly clear golden yellow with a decent ivory head that doesn’t last too long. The aroma is citrus and bread. The flavor is citrus, orange and bread. Overall this beer is pretty solid.

Nice orange pour white head. Some orange and fruit aroma. Citrus and sone sweetness first the some hops coming in the end. Light and hoppy moderate carbonation.
