Some men who have light brown or blond hair have red beards. I remember the rabbi at my shul in my hometown looked like this.
So the 'Gelbe' could have referred to Motel's hair color, rather than his beard color.

Interestingly, I also have family lore of a great great grandfather who was tall and had a red beard.
