To cfrancis:

Do you consider that the Koln draft beers had a sulphur ("rotten egg"/"boiled veg") taste?

How would you compare Lugtread to these? Similar, different?

Thanks.

Social media. Most breweries don't have someone hammering golden taps into their 1000+ followers. That's why GLB and Beau are locking down so many awards.

I mean what cask conditioned ale does GLB produce that warrants a golden tap?

Is Side Launch really doing that well, or do they just have good use of social media?


I've been buying their Weiss fresh from the brewery and loving it. Much better than any of the times I got burned buying canned Denisons.


Fair. I've heard lots of quality complaints from friends on the pale ale and I've had a few oxidized cans of wheat. Hope they can sort this out.


What sort of the complaints on the pale? I mean, I found it pretty run of the mill. But the cans I had weren't off.

And the Dunkel has been drinking nicely. I think I might crack one open now.

Not at all.

I find it floral and a little fruity with a cereal malt base in Cologne.

Good fresh Lugtread is very similar, I'm in Ottawa so I'm blessed usually with very fresh. Tonight alone I was looking at bottles to send to a friend and the date on them was 9/10/14.

On tap the Cologne version is a little cleaner tasting, where the Lugtread can have some small off flavours. I need to have it again to really pin point them but I remember it's just off a bit from Cologne but definitely in the ballpark.
