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.

Very clear, pale yellow, white head. Melon, fruits, light resin. Very bitter, very dry. Light body, quite a lot of carbonation. Residual hop flavor on the tongue. Long finish, very long for a lager. Quite nice.

Bitterness of an IPA, flavor of an orange peel. Cool beer to sip on the porch in the summer.

Bottle. Pours a boring goldish sort of color and has aromas of oranges with a little bit of maltiness. Flavor is heavy with bitter orange. It’s overpowering, but lovely.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6621) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a pale yellow-gold color with a medium sized fluffy white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweetish, tart, fruity and citric. The flavor was pine, lemon, pepper and turned a bit dry. Long finish. Medium body. Ok.

Bottle. Earthy ginseng (almost like sassafras root) and lemon biscuit malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Mildly sweet peach/lemon, biscuit malt, and moderately bitter herbal hay/ginseng flavor. Good body. Really different.
