BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Beau's All Natural Brewing Company
Ontario, Canada | website

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.

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.

Had at the C'est What? Festival of Small Breweries.

Pours a slightly hazy golden/yellow, thick white head, nice lacing, looks good. Smell is sweet, very clean, malty, some yeast, citrus, refreshing. Taste is nice and malty, some sweetness, wheat, very grainy, citrus, with a dry finish, kind of lemony. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, low carbonation. I understand they've had some consistency problems with this one, but a decent drink and an underrepresented style.
