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.

On tap at the Clock Tower in Ottawa as a guest tap. Fresh. Pale yellow with a good head.Significant candy sugar aroma. Watery. A faint bitterness offsetting the taste of sugar and water. Drinkable on a hot summer day, maybe the formula has been altered as it should have more hops.

A golden coloured ale with a fingers worth of fizzy white head. The head is poorly retained and leaves no lace behind. Smells like pils malt, grass, and hay with a faint hint of lemon. Very mild aroma. The flavour shows bread malt and tangy lemon with a grassy finish. Finishes dry with medium bitterness. I have to dock it for the cooked vegetable note that comes forward as it warms. It's bad enough to completely ruin an otherwise fairly tasty beer. It reminds me of the vegetative flavour in the Nickel Brook Organic Lager. Light bodied with medium carbonation, feels crisp. Drinks easy. It's alright, but I don't know if I would buy it again at eight dollars per 750mL bottle.

Unlike most in the area, I am not overy impressed with Beaus (or this beer). Smell is grainy and earthy. Taste is malty and grainy, and for the most part leaves an aftertaste of dirt. moderate bitterness rolls through the finish. Not bad on a summer day but wouldnt be the first beer i would go for. Being that it is made locally still makes me pick one up from time to time

Bottle: Poured a deep clear golden color Kölsch with a big foamy head with average retention and no lacing. Aroma of unrefined grain and weird dry ester is not overly pleasant. Taste is a mix between rich medium sweet grains with again some dry ester. Full body with good carbonation is pleasant. I have to admit that this is not a style that I am overly knowledgeable about or that I appreciated a whole lot but I thought this was acceptable.

came in a 4 pack. very unique packaging. very appealling with a brand name lace tied round the bottles.
bottles are 600 ml with a bottlecap not like bottle in photo. they have at least 4 different bottlecaps for the same beer and at first i thought i was buying a variety pack.

according to freshness date my bottle is about 3 weeks old.

beer pours clear with a pale yellow color and a healthy white head.

not a lot going on with the aroma. some grasiness, cereal grain aroma. difficult to pull much of the nose.

very smooth and easy drinking with some malty aftertaste. almost no bitterness. nothing bad tasting just very boring. not a lot going on here.

this beer is for someone who likes macro lager and wants to try something a little cleaner tasting. i dont dislike it but there is nothing to bring me back either.

Draft

Appearance - The beer pours a clear yellow colour with an small creamy off white coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some excellent lacing down the sides of the glass. The head didn't last for every long before it was gone.

Smell - breads/grains, hay/straw, corn, a grassines

Taste & Mouth - The beer actually has quite a bit of carbonation on the tongue, more than I expected after what I saw. Most of the taste is made up of breads/grains and straw/hay notes mixed with a corn syrup sweetness. There is also a grassiness to it and some very faint hops. The beer finishes with a slightly bitter farm like aftertaste.

Drink - Although this beer was better on draft than from the bottle, I still don't enjoy the 'farm taste'. The straw/hay notes really overpower the beer.
