My guess is Inonotus dryadeus

I don't think it is as you tend to get that more on oak and it would probably be dark brown as it decomposes during winter (if the photo is uptodate) 

 

Are you sure its not expanding foam? Some one maybe has filled up cavities in the tree?

Fair enough, I misread the post and thought it said Oak. DOH!

Expanding foam is a good option.

Interestingly enough, according to the Arb assoc "Fungi on Trees" dyradeus can very occassionally be found on beech - So I have learnt something new today!

Filling cavities with expanding foam; happy days. Not sure it is because they've not completed the job by drilling into the base of the cavity and shoving a bit of pipe in to drain it.

Photo was taken in December. Doubt its expanding foam as the other locations are much further up and not on cavities.

It looks like expanding foam on a Lime tree to me, unless it's a very rough barked beech.

 

As far as the orange blob goes, maybe cut a wedge from it. That will help to find out what it is.
