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.

Best and worst at the same time... First off I have to say I absolutely love this beer ON TAP. It has a smooth, easy drinking taste similar to a mainstream lager, but finishes with slight hint of deeper spice notes and bitterness of hops. Branding was eye catching and relate-able. However, I purchased this in a can and it was a completely different experience. The taste was extremely hash and far from the enjoyable, easy drinking experience of the draft version. If you see this on tap I would highly recommend, but steer clear from the cans.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2018 If I feel like downing a lot of beer I will buy a 4 pack of this and try my luck. It has a tolerable taste. I wouldn’t drink this on the regular but it’s good party beer if you wanna get smashed

The bones of a Kolsch with some more prominent ale characteristics. Sweet pilsner-like malt, grain, honey and splashes of citrus and field berries. Crisp, clean and balanced

I was very pleasantly surprised by this, my second kick-at-the-can with Beau's Brewery. Like its predecessor, it was from the Autumn 2017 boxed set (but for some odd reason, Sergeant Stripes Export Stout wasn't listed here), and I really enjoyed it--thus I'm not that upset that it's also included in their Winter 2018 pack lol--I'd rate it a low A.

Pours a clear straw with a nice, resilient white head. Taste is fruity, sweet, fieldberries, fresh maize. Light, crip herbal hopping, lingering herbal notes. Medium bodied, good carbonation.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2017 On tap at stone lion. Golden yellow pour. Taste is sweet and grainy. Some floral notes in the aroma. Crisp and refreshing

Had this one on tap at St Peter’s and Paul’s Festival. Nice setting to drink a good beer, happy to try the ’Ottawa 2017 Official Beer’ which is everywhere in Ottawa. Then opened one at home from Beau’s Summer 4-pack. Not a great beer, but good.

Too sweet for me. Odd that it is an ale- no? Too light. Colour is fine, (light golden colour) low aromas, again- sweet on the palate. A bit thin. If you like Bud you may like this one.

Not sure how this qualifies for an ale, let alone a lager (which everyone refers to it as). Light for a lager, even more so for an ale. Way to sweet as well. Beer should be bitter. Reminds me of the big macro breweries.

HKdIPA (878) - HONG KONG - APR 7, 2017
Tap at YOW but had many times before. Clear honey pour with minimal white head. Aroma is honey lager slight hoppy crisp. Taste is super crisp at first but opens to malty sweetness. Palate is slightly heavier than expected but good. Straightforward rich but crisp lager. More interesting and pronounced than basic lagers but not that much.
