I've never heard of beer soap before. This is probably a stupid question, but does it smell like beer?

Not a stupid question at all!  The first batch was a wheat beer with a really spicy scent, and I couldn't really smell the beer.  This batch was a lighter hoppier beer and a lighter scent, and you can smell the beer a little.  Most people say it smells kind of like bread in the background, I think it just gives it a nice warm background scent, kind of rich.. 

Supposedly once the beer mixes in, it's great for your skin and hair too!  The lather on the first batch was completely awesome, I think the beer is a nice addition Smiley
