Lug Tread Lagered Ale from Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company in the tiny village of Vankleek Hill, Ontario is an organic beer that pours a deep golden colour with a veritable ton of visible carbonation and a big soapy head that burns off quickly. This scarcely-brewed German-style beer smells very, very fresh. Sweet roasted malts and a grassy hop tone are joined by a slightly buttery note and one of freshwater.
The taste of Lug Tread Lagered Ale is primarily of toasted malts for me, with a real grassy character and a decent bitterness on the tongue. The mouthfeel is creamy at first, but takes on a bready or yeasty character as the carbonation burns off. The aftertaste is quite dry and crisp, with a hint of malt and a slight earth/dirt note.
