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.

600 ml bottle from the 4 pack of Beau's lug tread purchased from LCBO for just under $16 CDN. Served cold into a pint glass.

Appearance -Clear pale golden beer. Nice 2+ fingers of head that lingers for a bit but subsides shortly thereafter. Streaky but sparse lacing left behind in the glass.

Smell - Grassy and grainy with a slight malt and fruit aroma undercurrent.

Taste - Mild but very crisp and clean with a slight floral taste, focused on grass. Mild bitterness. Lingering flavors make my tongue sing. There also a lasting grape flavor that I seem to find with most kolschs, that is present but subtle here.

Mouthfeel - Great smoothness with medium-high carbonation here that is just... right.

Overall - A very fine Kolsch, probably y favorite and something that is extremely sessionable.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - pours a golden yellow with one finger width of foamy off-white head.

Smell - bready and sweet malts, hint of citrus, apple, hops (somewhat noble), and a touch sulphury.

Taste - bready malts, apple, sulphury yeast, touch of hops bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Dry finish, medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall - For my first Beau's offering, this Kolsch has all the elements for the style. Quite sessionable.

Sampled from a Beau's Willi Bechler tumblr. A pour straight down the middle of the glass raised a healthy eggshell coloured head that exhibited a nice rockiness, clear pale yellow liquid underneath. The smell is delicate maltiness with a grassy note and lightly hoppy. The taste is light bodied and crisp with a decent hopping for the light body, slightly flowery mixing with a slight biscuity malt flavour. This easy drinking ale finshes crisply with bittersweet end. A session/warm weather quencher for sure. Delicate and refreshing.
