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.

ILduce (280) - Toronto, Ontario, - DEC 29, 2011
600ml bottle LCBO: Golden lager with white frothy head and lace. Malty hoppy aroma. Taste is bready and malty backed up by some bitter hop contenet. Balanced and clean.

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 (798) - 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.

Its good. Real good. Almost too good. What do these small town brewers put in this stuff that makes you crave it fortnightly? Watch your back Steamwhistle in Toronto, Vankleek coming at ya!!

600-ml bottle pours crystal-clear yellow with a small soapy head. Minimal lacing. Aroma: lemon, hay, yeast, flowers. Flavor: all the above. A decent lawnmower beer or a transitional beer for a light-beer drinker.

A little too plain for my liking for a craft beer - almost seems like the Coors of crafts, light drinking but lacking on the flavor you typically expect from Beau’s

3.7
omhper (24964) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2017
Keg at Sir John A., Ottawa. Clear deep golden, small head. Fruity grassy nose. Mid dry with light-medium body and dense, well rounded mouthfeel. Firm malt, on the fruity/bready side. Mild spicy hops. Lightly minerally with mid bitter finish. Unassuming and charming, with the drinkability that befits a kölsch. One of the best examples outside Cologne. One of the best keg versions.

3.1
yespr (44793) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2017
From tap. Pours clear yellow, small white head. Aroma is grassy and slight grainy. Toasted malty. Grassy. Brewmash. Grainy. Toasted and malty far finish. Mild grassy.

caitlin_m (14) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2017
Pours a clear light yellow with a foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of light citrus with hints of caramel malt. It has a nice bitterness to it and very crisp. It is quite smooth compared to other lighter beers.
