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.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2012 600 ml bottle. Somewhat disappointing and overpriced. Bland taste, pale colour like Corona, slightly reminiscent of a Molson Canadian-type taste (it’s been ages since I’ve drunk macro-brews). Lug Tread is definitely drinkable, but a little lame for this price range and micro-brewery standards. Maybe I’m not a big fan of this style. But at this price point, I felt compelled to rate it. I have to say that the second one (on the next day) tastes better than the first. Hmmm.... Maybe there’s a reason they sell these in four-packs.

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.

Tricker (283) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014
Bière blonde de 5.2 % d’alcool. Elle possède un col mousseux au versement. Elle possède un odorat sucré. Il y a un goût de malt et de froment. Il y a également une amertume en bouche en finale. Elle possède un goût céréalier, comme de l’orge et également un aspect malté . Elle possède un goût normal et simple. Intéressante !

PeteP (8) - North Lancaster, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2014 does not count
(many) bottles from the brewery, a short drive for me. There’s definitely a sweetness, followed by a balanced bitterness with a nice finish. Grainy, with a hint of hops... It’s an ale with a bit of an identity crisis, but yummy to me!

jksipa (384) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2014
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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2176) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 12, 2014
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.
