Lagered Ale • 5.2% alc./vol
LUG•TREAD LAGERED ALE is our award winning, flagship beer. Golden-hued, crisp and finely balanced, LUG•TREAD is a tribute to the classic beer of Cologne, Germany. LUG•TREAD is top fermented (like an ale) and then cold aged (like a lager) for a lengthy period. This imparts light ale notes that are complemented by a lager-like crispness. LUG•TREAD displays interwoven malt and hop flavours, subtle fruit flavours and a crisp, lingering finish.
Oktoberfest Lager • 5.5% alc./vol.
Märzen is the traditional Oktoberfest style of beer. 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. Like all our beer, NIGHT•MÄRZEN is brewed with local springwater, organic malts and organic hops.
5 New Wild Oats Series Beers
Matt O'Hara, Beau’s Master Brewer, and his team of Brewers (Chris, Kevin & Brad) have been hard at work formulating new and ridiculously tasty beers for OKTOBERFEST 2011. They are...
Smokin' Banana Peel - Hefeweizen
WILD OATS SERIES NO. 11
That classic Hefeweizen character with an intense banana aroma, but with an added smokiness from malts that were home-smoked at the brewery with maple wood (Canadian maple at that, too!). Simply put, banana pancakes with bacon.
Two Weeks Notice - German Porter • 6.0% alc./vol.
WILD OATS SERIES NO. 12
A very rare style that was originally created as a competitor to the popular London porter. So, what makes it a German porter? Why it's been brewed with lager yeast of course! The roasted barley provides chocolate flavours and the malt sweetness is complimented by a finely balanced bitterness.
Weiss O'Lantern - Pumpkinweiss
WILD OATS SERIES NO. 13
Orange hued with a tall creamy head, Weiss O' Lantern is a white beer brewed with pumpkin. Pumpkin citrus fruit and spice flavours shine through it's full, wheat body. The finish is lively, zippy and darn refreshing.
Dr. Jekyll - Lug•Tread - Night•Märzen Blend • 5.2% alc./vol.
WILD OATS SERIES NO. 14
Am I a kolsch or a marzen? A little bit of both I say, -
what's that? Mr. Hyde rapping at my door methinks.... The delicately malty, slightly fruity character of Lug•Tread dances lockstep with the more intensely bready, biscuity backbone of Night•Märzen, while taming some of its hop intensity. This blend is a perennial favorite around the brewery.
Mr. Hyde - Roggenbier meets RyePA • 7.0% alc./vol.
WILD OATS SERIES NO. 15
A tribute to the Roggenbiers of Germany, but done with with a North American twist. Deep copper in colour, Mr. Hyde is a rye beer that has been hopped aggressively in the American vein. However, it utilizes German hops to provide bitterness, flavour and aroma, while the rye malt provides an additional spiciness.
