3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle at French 75 (New Orleans, LA). Decided on this after a couple cocktails. Pours a gently hazed golden amber hue, a bit darker and dulled into the middle. Frothy offwhite head is a mellow layer, small lacing and stick around. Aromas are earthy bitterness, florals and grass meet a gentle waft of pine, bready malts, rosehips, dough, and straw. Initial is a soft lighter body, supporting bready malts, cereal grain meet a decent hop character, earthy and pine elements are the focus here shying away from any sort of citrusy or fruity bite. A gentle bready malt middle, firmer bitterness returns as we hit the backend, earthy and a bit boring but bitter enough to stay away from any sort of mushy, malty, flabby Pale. Instead what you have here is a solid drinker, a bit of a boring hop profile with gentle maltiness, fair drinkability. Not bad.

355 ml bottle. Pours a pale amber colour with a medium beige head. Aroma is a bit weird - with some malts and bread. Taste is better - with some hops, malts. Better in the mouth than in the nose!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap in Brookhaven GA.
Flavor Near equal malt/hop balance. Rather malty for style although the hops come out in the finish and aftertaste.
O. More like a brown ale than an APA. Well crafted if unexceptional.

When I get pale beers from Louisiana, I’m expecting a thirst-quenching beer that doesn’t inspire. But it’s hot in Louisiana, and you sort of need that. This beer takes the hop bite up just a bit. It’s not anything that’s going to blow you away, but it doesn’t shy away from being different, and I appreciate that.

Bottle at an oyster bar in New Orleans. Grass and grapefruit taste with surprisingly little bitterness. Not great but did a fine job of washing down a couple dozen plump oysters.
