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.

Got this one at the LCBO last summer. Was happy to see a single bottle and not be forced to buy a four pack.

From a 600ml bottle into a snifter.
Batch no. 3675
Bottled on 25 June 2014

APPEARANCE: Pours a 2+ finger, bubbly, thinner, fluffy white head with decent retention. Head fades to a thick and foamy cap. Perfectly clear amber yellow with lower levels of carbonation. A faint wisp and ring remain leaving falling dots of lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Grainy malts, white bread, corn and light floral hops. Very lager like.

TASTE: Follows the nose, but not quite as grainy. White bread, corn, with some light bitterness at the swallow. Medium but lingering finish of bread, floral hop bitterness, touches of caramel sweetness and some grainy bread flavors. More lager-like, though less grainy than expected.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy enough, but a touch watery perhaps, goes down smooth and finishes a touch dry.

OVERALL: A well-made beer for sure, but a touch too grainy in the nose for me. Luckily that quality didn’t transfer to the flavor profile, so it was more enjoyable to drink than initially expected off the aroma. Not something I’ll need to drink again anytime soon, but I was glad to finally give it a shot. If you’re a lager fan, you’ll enjoy this ale as well.

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.
