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.

HippyHop (450) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Pour is clear gold with nothing going on. Nose is mostly bread/grain, a bit of hay and barnyard - that Beau’s rustic bouquet. Taste is sweet grainy malt, a little funky, with the crisp lager finish they advertise. Simple and kinda boring, but tasty.

worldbeertaste (1741) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2014
Pale gold with with a thin, white, disappearing fizzy head. Smells of yeast, pale malt, fruit, flowers and some lite grassy hops. Medium dry light body with medium carbonation. Tastes of yeast, fruit, dry pale malt and bread with a hoppy finish. Not awful but not particularity interesting. Drinkable.

andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 13, 2014
Pours a clear gold with a thin white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is mild fruit, pears, cherry?s, a touch of sulfur and mildly wine like. Flavour is soft malt, mildly fruity, medium, light puckering tartness, mildly bitter with a mild presence of noble hops. Very nice lightly fruity light brew!

Reimer96 (1515) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 11, 2014
Pours a clear golden copper with a frothy and lacey white head. Aroma of biscuit, toast, sweet pale malts and a nice floral esthers from the yeast. Taste is toast, biscuit and a rich sweet pale malt character... Crisp and clean finish like this style should have... Rich malt profile like an ale and lager finish... Almost perfect kolsch!

No bitterness to speak of with this ’lagered’ ale, but it comes with a nice spicy aroma and it is crisp and smooth going down. The malts are soft and muted, like saltine crackers

Metalflake (35) - Les Coteaux, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 26, 2014
Not lager, not ale - yup, it’s a Kölsch alright! Poured into a shaker, nice clear yellow colour with a frothy white 2cm head that dissipated quickly but never quite disappeared. Aromas of grain & grass, crisp & lively on the palate with medium carbonation. Tasted slightly sweet, flavours of malted grain , hay and a hint of doughy yeast. Finish was pleasantly bitter, nicely hopped but not overdone. Eminently drinkable - this may be my new everyday beer. Can’t wait for it to be available in QC!

Une belle bière blonde, à la fois «de soif» et de dégustaition. Le houblon est bien en valeur sur une trame à la fois amère et un peu sucrée (j’insiste sur le un peu). C’est l’une des bières phares de Beau’s, une bière de tous les jours, sans prétention et sans complexe. Le «crisp» me plait autant que la facilité qu’offre cette bière pour se laisser boire. C’est tout ce que j’avais à dire pour aujourd’hui.
