2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear copper body with a small fizzy off-white head that retained as a thin film due to the active carbonation. The nose is lightly hoppy with a nice floral quality. There’s also a light crackery maltiness and a little yeastiness. The flavor is just lightly hoppy as well with a minimal bitterness. The malt comes across as somewhat dry and light with a little huskiness. Light bodied and very fizzy with a short floral hop finish. Not bad, but I could do with a little less fizziness.

Very nice. On tap at the Avenue Pub in New Orleans. Not a lot for a hop lover to choose from at this pub. (Tremendous tap and bottle selection just not a lot of hoppy beers.) Has a nice malty flavor with a touch of hops in the background. The flavor has the hops with a nice balance.
