    Sounds like you are failing at craft beard.

    If you lost the moustache and kept the beard would you still win the bet?

    Maybe you should scale the 'stache back to a creepy little John Waters type number and see if that helps.

    I got 99 problems, but a moustache ain't one - hit me!

    If you have to ask "how to beard?", you should not beard. Drinking the nectar that my glorious mustache demands to inspect is a glorious second drink of beer.

    If the lips are flaming it can make clouds taste metallic, but I've never heard that for beer.

    This could very well be a medical related problem as well. Don't rule that out.

    The only thing I dislike is having to keep a napkin ready at bars because the stache retains more than it should.

    Could be the oil from lip hair. Not to be mistaken for hair lip which creates a whole other problem for a beer drinker.

    I don't always always have a mustache, but when I do I make sure my beer still tastes good. Stay thirsty my friend

    That's nuts, man - maybe your soap or shampoo or whatever you wash with is lingering in the old 'stache?

    Honest to god, just noticed it with a pilsner I'm drinking, and have noticed it on and off with random beers. No idea why facial hair would make beer taste metallic.

    Except for a 4 year period in the early 80's, I have had facial hair since around 77 or so with no effect on the taste of beer or anything else.
    On a side note, the really disturbing part of this whole thread is, beard oil and mustache wax.:confused:

    How has nobody suggested straw use? Ya, you'll look like, well, odd as all shit but hey, no more metallica 'stache issue.

    For the record, I do not, and will not EVER endorse straw use with beer unless in the following circumstances:

    1. Sneaking beer into a public place via commercial cup/lid/straw combo (McDonalds cup for instance.
    2. Mustache issues.
    3. Broken jaw.


    I missed this one from @wobblymailman - sorry!

    Time to start drinking those Porters and Stouts with a straw.

    Whisker Dam, its like an umbrella for your face. Although it is made of copper which might make it taste even more metallic!

    "Who wants mustache rides?"

    Nope, never noticed any metallic or other off taste from the stache. Are you certain you're not a cyborg?

    TEKNISHE Initiate (0) Jan 12, 2011 Pennsylvania

    some stouts just taste metallic to me. Sierra Nevada comes to mind. I've drank it bearded and clean shaven and I'm pretty sure it's just a property of this particular stout. It may not be your facial hair.

    I want to get this joke, since seemingly a lot of other people find it hilarious. What the hell is he saying? I must be missing a metaphor or something...

    Some girls liked my beard and crazy mustache, for sure. But the girl that became my wife loved it when it all came off. She said she had no idea what I really looked like! It has all stayed off for a very long time. I very rarely detected metal in my flavorful mustache.
