COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
LA-31 Bière Pâle is crafted with imported Belgian malts and American hops and yeast. This is a distinct new style of beer - no one else in the country makes anything like it. LA-31 Bière Pâle is traditionally brewed ale; it is bronze colored and has a biscuity malt center. The beer has herbal hop flavors and a gentle, mellow bitterness. This full flavored beer is crafted to enhance the unique cuisine and lifestyle of South Louisiana.

Barreras (978) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Pours a light amber color with a slight orange hue. Aroma is floral with a hoppy nose. Taste is a little bitter but has a doughy aftertaste left on the tongue after the swallow. Overall a decent American pale ale that I was glad to try in New Orleans.

Drank from snifter poured from 12 oz glass. Good hop profile. Almost seems like an ipa, but very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PorterPounder (5538) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Seaside, Fl - Modica Market - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, light but sticky off-white head, a bit of lacing. Aroma has a slight funk, some toffee sweetness. Flavor has a trace of caramel, some home-brewed crystal malt, a bit of toffee but an odd aftertaste leaves a bad taste in my mouth which dampens my enthusiasm for it.

Very decent pale ale. Light bodied and light of appearance. A nice, subtle pine and citrus aroma and a crisp mouthfeel with decent carb. Tried at Mulates in Breaux Bridge.

On tap at the Cajun Cabin. Pours pale gold with a medium, off-white head. The aroma is lemons, hay, mozzarella, and vanilla. The flavor is citrus sweetness and a little bitterness. The aftertaste is mildly bitter and fades quickly. The palate is light to medium, effervescent, and crisp, but a little astringent. This is a light and funky pale ale, but nothing special.

Oh, I picked up a six pack of their smoked wheat at Rouse’s while I was in New Orleans. I get all the way back home with four beers remaining to discover there are two pale ales in there. Those sneaky bastards. . .I suppose this reinforces my idea that Bayou Tech is releasing sub par beers. I like the idea behind these two beers I’ve tried, but the execution is not exactly tasty. The biere pale has a faint grassy hop quality and a bit of buttery biscuits with a dash of caramel. However there are metallic notes that I also found quite heavy in the Boucanee and something that I can only describe as glue. Lactic sourness is again apparent. The fact that the passable hop flavor is prominent saves this from being a complete wreck, but it’s just not a great beer at the end of the day.

Bottle. Pours clear orange with a medium, fizzy white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is fruity esters, pine and citrus hops with biscuit malt. Flavor is malt forward with medium hops and bitterness, fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium to light body, medium carbonation.
