BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Beau's All Natural Brewing Company
Ontario, Canada
beaus.ca

Style: Kölsch

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

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.

I think of this beer as a faux craft. Big fancy bottle, big fancy price, but it just tastes like a macrolager with a little fuller taste & nothing adjunct or unpleasant like some of the Terribles (Coors Light etc.) I'm not looking for a beer that goes down clean & crisp & tastes like almost nothing except for carbonated bubbles.

Clear gold with an excellent head & lacing. Solid bready nose. Excellent balance between crispness and softness for maximal drinkability.

I had this because at a food festival, out of the claimed "craft beer" selections (where Steam Whistle was advertised as craft beer, lol!), this was the only one I never had and the rest were rather crappy.
Well, it certainly is tolerable but it's nothing special. Nothing stands out here. Some wheat and maybe fruit, but it's kind of Heineken as well. Still, if there really is nothing else, I guess I will have it again.

july 20/17 batch in Ottawa itself so good and fresh.
Poured into a tulip glass (not that that matters)
Crisp and clear light gold.
Wheaty smell but weak.
Fresh, clean beer which is a great entry point if you have never tried a Beaus however much more exotic tastes await you with this brewer.

Pours gold. Foamy, short, white head fades fast.

Smells grain, floral and light fruit.

Tastes bready, grain, light grassiness and hint of fruit. Finish is dry with floral bitterness and light grain. Lighter body and fizzy medium carbonation.

Ultimate in between beer. Some hoppy notes, not a full lager but mostly crisp and lager flavour. Love the 355 cans

Many beers make claims to be of a German style and having lived there I find most of the time I'm let down but not this time. Nice clean feel and excellent look. Scent is great with nice apple tones and taste is authentic and brings me back. Great job!
