Beau’s flagship offering is Lug Tread Lagered Ale, named after the tire treads of a small tractor, a true symbol of Eastern Ontario. Golden-hued, crisp and finely balanced, Lug Tread is a tribute to “Kölsch” the classic beer of Cologne, Germany. Lug Tread is top fermented (like an ale) and then cold aged, or “lagered”, for a lengthy period. This gives it some light ale notes, complemented by a lager-like crispness.

Bottle from the brewery. Clear pale gold pour with a large fluffy white head. Nose has yeast, hone, grain and faint grass. Lightly sweet honey and toffee start followed by a very light bitterness and a short crisp finish. Mouth is medium light with average carbonation. Good alternative to a pale lager.

On tap at WVRST - part of a tasting set. A very clear deep gold pour with a thin filmy head.  It has a fruity and rough malt aroma. Medium bodied with a clean malty crackery taste - think a bready pils. Very nice.

Apparence: D?une couleur jaune dorée translucide, elle est coiffée d?une mousse moyenne d?une bonne durée. Effervescence pratiquement inexistante. Arômes: Au nez, exclusivement des notes de malt très subtile. Saveurs: Au goût, c’est très simple et très subtile. Il y a un goût de malt et de malt frais accompagné d’une légère effervescence. Le tout est suivi par une légère amertume. Le tout, déjà léger, ne dure pas longtemps. Bière populaire et commerciale, vous pouvez passer à côté. Fiche technique Style: Kölsch (Bu en draft)

Tap at McNeil's, Port Hope. Surprised I hadn't rated this one. Pours a clear gold with a with head. Very little aroma, might as well be water actually. Light body medium carbonation. Lemon, honey, light caramel, white bread, a bit dull but ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2014 600ml bottle at Zak’s Restaurant. Pours a light straw color. Thin white head. Definitely filtered. Lively carbonation. Aromas of light citrus with hints of caramel malt. Mouthful is light and refreshing. Tastes of a citrus and malt balance. Has a nice lime infused tingle on the swallow. A bit old school but very sessionable.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2014 Golden in colour, clean, refreshing. Very weak head tho, disappeared quickly. I have never tasted a kolsch but I assume very much like a lager. As far as lagers go, its very good, for sure one of the best ones I have ever drank, no skunk taste or anything like that, very crisp. But overall the style is still rather boring. Don’t know why I purchased the 4 pack of 600ml bottles, would of rather had 1 or 2 and been done with it, I had a fealling it wouldn’t be anything great yet I still purchased it and at a rather high end price. Probably good on a hot day tho.

600 mL bottle crushed with some bros. Pours clear golden. You like DMS? Good starch? Bad bad bad.

On draft at an earth to table pizza joint in Hamilton, ON. Had no clue what it was when ordering it, but after tasting it, I said to myself "seems like a Kolsch." Happy to see that this is in fact what they were going for. Light malt aroma and flavor. No apparent hop flavors, just enough to balance. Quite clean and refreshing - definitely a pizza beer, which is good since this is what I had it with. Solid Kolsch.
