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.

cool that this is all organic, very much a workingmans brew, light but interesting, hearty and almost healthy feeling, nutritive, easy. golden and rather clear on the pour from the pretty and unique and affordable glass bottle. good head, good bubbles, good nose. grassy and golden, straw and hay, honey and pollen, bready lager yeast, but something is up with the yeast, odd strain or odd conditions, clean and bright, accentuates bitterness, rustic but delicate, perfect for this beer and maybe its most undersung and intriguing element. medium body, grassy bitter hops, is this even a lager? nice carbonation, more malt flavor than most beer this pale has, maybe thats the unique organic grain the label mentions, either way, this is very good. rich for being dry, big for being light, and not in need of overanalyzation so much as it is in need of being consumed whe its chilly and fresh. these guys have been cool in limited exposure, and seem to be doing it well on both ends, what comes in and what goes out. need to get access to more of their beers...

I had this beer on draft the other day. Actually I had the pleasure of pouring it for a beer festival in upstate NY. This review is my interpretation of the beer however almost everyone I poured for had a very similar experience with this beer.

A- Poured a tad foamy (could be because it was in a jockey box) with a thick white head. The head died down quickly but never disappeared. The color was golden with light bubbles constantly moving around.

S- Grainy malts, Biscuit, cracker, white bread, slight citrus and grape from the hops

T- Coincides with the aromas. Biscuit and cracker right from the start, White grapes on the aftertaste and finishes with a white bread and sweet malts.

M- Light to medium body, moderate carbonation on the tongue, finishes a tad dry (in a positive way)

O- Great interpretation of a Kolsch style beer. Very light, crisp, and refreshing (Perfect for a hot summer day) Very sessionable. I'm looking forward to purchasing some of these.

Decent brew to accompany a meal. Hits the middle of the road well in terms of lagers, but not a standout. Easily drinkable.

Leaves a lot to be desired. Brand story is heartwarming and nice. Beyond that doesn't deliver. Soapy taste, off-hilt flavouring.
