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.

Bottle from mikem409. Pours a mostly opaque orange-blonde with a medium white head. Aroma is very fruity and hoppy, lots of citrus, and the orange peel comes through pretty clearly. Taste is heavy bitter, mild-medium sweet. Finish is bitter. Medium body, one of the more full-bodied <5% ABV beers I’ve ever had, well carbonated. If you want something really hoppy on a hot day, this is perfect.

Bought a single from the Blue Goat wine shop in TC. Poured in tulip glass. Pour is a orange/gold color with a slight haze. Nice half inch or so white head that lingers to an "oil spill appearance" on top. Aroma is citrus, grassy, piney, sweet, with a hint of grapefruit. Taste is a smooth, light, hoppy, bitterness that lingers slightly. You can taste some pine/ grassyness to it and is a clean, crisp, light finish

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.

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.

Not the lager you were expecting. This is more APA with a ton of hops. Very crisp and clean like a lager with lots of flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle: Nearly clear, yellow-gold with a frothy white head. Lager yeast, lemon aroma. Lemon-peel, grain malt flavour....resiny/citrus-peel bitter. Very hoppy, malty.... Big stuff in a light ABV package.

Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle to dogfish head IPA glass. Light gold with a slight haze and a frothy off-white head. Spicy hops, orange and a slight skunk in the aroma. Piney upfront and finishes with some biscuit and grains. Really spicy. Nice and light.

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark gold with a bug foamy white head that lingers. Citrus aroma, of orange zest, hops, and a hint of grapefruit. Taste is bitter and smooth, starts a bit floral and orangey, then picks up a big hoppy bitterness and bready yeast, with some creamier malt and sugar. Lingering bitterness. Nice IPA.

On tap at the brewpub.. Pours yellow-gold with white head. Citrus, pine and hops in the aroma and taste with a nice bitter finish. Another nice solid beer from Joe.
