Notes/Commercial Description:
Golden-hued, crisp and finely balanced, Lug Tread is our tribute to the classic beer of Cologne, Germany. Lug Tread is top fermented (like an ale) and then cold aged (like a lager) for a lengthy period. This gives our beer some light ale notes complemented by a lager-like crispness. Lug Tread displays interwoven malt and hop flavours, subtle fruit flavours and a crisp, lingering finish.

600ml bottle at Zak’s Restaurant. Pours a light straw color. Thin white head. Definitely filtered. Lively carbonation. Aromas of light citrus with hints of caramel malt. Mouthful is light and refreshing. Tastes of a citrus and malt balance. Has a nice lime infused tingle on the swallow. A bit old school but very sessionable.

From afar in a glass, this beer looks like any old lager. It's clear and yellow. We might drink with our eyes at first but our taste buds soon take over. Beau's Lug Tread is a perfect example of a kölsch, that unique beer from Cologne. Although the appearance isn't anything too exciting, the flavour is. It has a hoppiness that definitely tells you it's there but the bitterness is toned down a bit. The lacing is excellent and the head quickly dissipates. All in all this is an excellent beer to drink year round.

A: Clear filtered golden with little carbonation, 5 fingers of white chunky off white head with large and small bubbles.

S: Malty, vitamin c, aspirin, white grapes, white wine, white grape juice qualities. Very vinous, herbal quality.

T: White wine and grape juice coming through in the taste, a light dull bitter aftertaste, nice maltiness and dough like yeast quality.

M: Medium body, medium low carbonation, dry finish.

O: A great Canadian example of the style. Light and uniquely kolsch. Best example of a kolsch, I dare not say, but a sure good representation.
