COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Meh. It isn’t bad for a lager, but who needs another lager? I do like the hoppy spice notes.

piscator34 (2331) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 27, 2016
Draft. Clear gold with medium carbonation. Aromas are of grainy malts and a bit of honey. Flavors of sweetish cereal grains, wet stones, and very mild fruit. Light bodied. Has both Helles and Kolsch characteristics. Simplistic, but decent for what it is.

ljthiessen (1080) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 24, 2016
Bottle. Crystal clear pale yellow pour with a decent white head. Aroma is grainy, corn notes and a bit of toast. Taste is much the same, cereal, slight corn. Nice thing here is that it's not overly carbonated and not too sweet - very drinkable.

Johnsense (1328) - - JUL 23, 2016
Re-rated as my local has this on tap. Pale golden pour, monstrous puffy white head. Grassy aroma, grains, pear, lighter bread and citrus notes. Grass and lemon up front, green apple, bread dough, caramel sweetness. Lighter to medium body, fairly crisp finish.

AleRider78 (631) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2016
Had on tap and bottle many times. Poured a thick bubbly head. Has a pale yellowish colour. Has wheats and grains in aroma, hints of apple, pear. Grainy flavours mixed with a good balance of malts and hops. Has a lemony citrus tang as well. Tingly mouthfeel, medium bodied and retention, good lacing. Also has a faint banana like flavourful mouthfeel. Good stuff and organic! :)

Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUN 15, 2016
Pours clear light gold with big white head. Looks like cider almost. Aroma is of bread, honey, caramel, and herbs. Tastes of bread, honey, light caramel, and earthy spices. Has a great refreshing palate. It is extremely smooth and drinkable yet so flavourful too. I don’t see how it is rated so low.

Freaky_tiki (1037) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2016
4 pack from LCBO bought on occasion for my neice’s most recent visit. She proudly declared this was her new favourite beer & like a good uncle I just wanna keep her off the Budweiser. Ive drank this many times but oddly I’ve never rated it. I like Beaus more than most people I know, but this has never been my go to from their stable. Pours wet & frothy in the glass. I like German beer styles & this is a pretty decent take on a kolsch. Starts a bit sugary, with herbal notes & barnyard hay in the middle, a brief grassy hop finish. Greater than the ratings suggest.

Cimbasso (709) - - MAY 14, 2016
Sampled on draught. A golden colour with a white head. Malty, bready aroma. The taste is of malt and dough and is quite full and complex. Much better than most of the local lagers. Some grassiness in the flavour, but not much bitterness. Quite drinkable.

drowland (7881) - Georgia, USA - MAR 30, 2016
3/12/16. Sampled during 2016 Hunahpu’s Day. Golden pour under a small off-white head. Nice aroma, clean lager aspect, lightly fruity, grassy, grainy and doughy pale maltiness. Good flavor, clean and smooth, grassy, a touch of spice and fruitiness, grainy and doughy pale malts. Tasty enough.

biirusaikou (2479) - - JAN 11, 2016
Draught at Saint-Bock. Not too sure what style this is meant to be but this one is lagerish, fairly thin, watery and boring. Have yet to be impressed by this brewery and it may take a while...

Jow (3384) - New York, USA - DEC 30, 2015
Tap at Gingerman lunch. Fine golden kolsch look. Nose is faint fruity, and hops. Tastes of grains, herbal, straw, some light fruit, distant hops. Not all that crisp but nothing off putting.
