Our only regularly produced lager, this rich malty beer uses just the right amount of noble hops to balance the Munich Malts and features an ultra clean finish to complete the package. Brewed with local spring water, organic malts and organic hops. Oh yeah!

4 oz on cask at Beau’s Oktoberfest 2011, October 2, 2011. Dirty orange, little head. Aroma of barley a little dry, hints of wheat. Slightly sweet taste of barley, dried hops with notes of herbs, a little bitter. Quite delicious!

Nice pint of Cask at Burger Bar, Kensington Market. Tastes fruity and a bit mineral with slightly herbal dry hops. Yep, pale fruit and earth. A good one.

Tap at volo, pour is fairly light, the graininess is there, a bit smooth on in the finish, overall it wasnt my fav but it was drinkable

600 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear deep amber with a white rim. Aroma: Grains and cereals, wet hay, a little grassy, faint fruitiness and maybe esters, a touch earthy/nutty, hints of British-style malts, some biscuit. Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence with some prickly bubbles. Flav.: Grain/cereal, a little mashy, some wet hay/grass, a little more fruitiness (still quite restrained), some slightly peppery hops, earthy notes, not bad; dry with restrained bitterness and a peppery, biscuit malt finish with hints of fruitiness.

Pretty nice beer. Good earthy/grassy start with some solid sweet backing and a pretty good bitterness to finish. Nice bite on the end as well.

The Festive’Ale the Altbier variation (darker malts, mainly) off the LugTread. Then, consider the NightMarzen like the Marzen’s take off the LugTread. Albeit a really bitter take on the Marzen style. Pours amber. Hops are grassy/earthy. Typical Beau’s Malt (grainy, and somewhat caramelized for the darker ones). All in all -- it’s probably overly bitter for its style, but still a well-made beer if you like that brewer, because they don’t get that much diffrent from the LugTread and the FestiveAle.

Cask at C’est What - came a clear amber/orange, with a tight, almost nitro-looking cask head. Aroma of toasted grains, amber malt, a hint of earthy hops. Flavour similar - malt-driven, soft, luxuriously malty, toasty, great mouthfeel from the cask. Endlessly drinkable. Has the Beau’s "house taste", and at times seems like a fuller-bodied, more complex version of little brother Lug Tread. Solid brew, glad I finally got to try it.

I tried this beer on December 22, 2010 at "Bar Volo" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a beautiful translucent cherry red, with a thin white head. The aroma is grainy malt, light fruit, caramel, and weak floral hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was a perfect balance between the malty sweeetness and the hoppy bitterness. Easy to drink!
