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.

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.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Serving Type - 600ml bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Pours with a crystal clear golden/straw colour, with a medium amount of carbonation visible. Poured with a finger of extremely light head, which fades into a soapy foam pretty quickly. Average looking brew.

Smell - Grains and cereal mostly, but also some light roasted malts. Not picking up much else, maybe some extremely faint floral bits.

Taste - Way more intense than I expected. Fantastic! Cereal and grain flavours abound! A bit of floral bits here as well. I'm also getting some pretty decent hop bitterness, as well as some faint gape flavour.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, pretty high carbonation and a very dry finish.

Overall - 4/5
