Pour the beer mixture into the flour mixture, and stir until just moistened and incorporated.
The batter should be fairly thick.
Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.
Brush the top of loaf with reserved egg and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
Bake in the oven for 70 to 80 minutes or until the loaf is well browned and a wooden skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack in the pan for about 10 minutes.
Remove the bread from the loaf pan, serve warm or at room temperature.
