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.

Ferris (4482) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle - Grains, light skunk and pale malts. Pale yellow with a thin bubbly head. Grain, honey and corn with a bit of fruit esters. Tastes more like a Euro Pils than anything else, but clean and refreshing.

Sample on tap at Imbibe (Kitchener). Pours crystal clear blonde with no head. Not much aroma. Taste: lager yeast, honey, lavender, lemon. Thin. Ok for a Kölsch.

Belle bière couleur de paille, limpide où peu de col y flotte. Des arômes fruités de malts pâles, de pâte à pain et une note herbacée. Elle est peu amère, exempte de sucre et légèrement minérale. Elle est lisse, très effervescente, de corps léger, et se termine sur une finale sèche et légèrement amère.

Cantabrian (848) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 23, 2013
Taster, at an "organic" pizza place in Hamilton, Ont. I was told it was a "lagered ale", so I thought that either they were BS’ing me or they had no idea what they were talking about. Obviously, I was the only one with no clue, in the end. And actually it did taste like a very pleasant lager. Nice and crisp, sweet but not cloying, with a nice touch of citrus/grass touch of hops bitterness. And not herbal. I’d never have dreamed it would be a Koelsch.

600ml nice bottle. Pours a clear light golden with a thin white head. Aromas of sweet malt, yeast, and a little bit bready. Taste of sweet malt, and some citrus. Hops nearly absent. Very light beer. Not impressed.

Good generic local organic beer from Ontario Canada. Excellent choice with fish for dinner. Not super flavourful.
