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.

kramer (4895) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2012
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.

mile (2940) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 22, 2012
Bottle. Golden, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel, light herbal - vegetable hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, some caramel, light herbal - vegetable hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel, some grassy - herbal hoppyness. Bit too much caramel -also could do without that vegetable hoppyness.

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.

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2012
On tap. Amber with a slight haze and loose head. Lightly herbal aroma and mellow caramel notes. Earthy but a little bit of phenol as well. Might be a little bit old.

Smell has some nice roasty character, not sure if I like this but I will have to. lil bit bready, picking up some sour from the yeast, is this skunked? Pours hazy golden color with light carbonation. In the cup im picking up some caramel flavors. Taste is much like a homebrew kit. Green, sour, hmm bitter, ug, I didn’t think it was going to be this bad. My lips sting. Great marketing on the box. **Update - Fairly sure this is contaminated. Too Bad.

Sample at The Cajun Cleaver. Nice Pale Ale. Poured bronze. Aroma big malty/hop mix with some fruitiness. Taste followed up well. Mediumish body with a mild bitter finish.

heemer77 (5099) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Bottle thanks to my brother. The body was deep bronze copper hued with a light khaki head. A rich grainy nose was complemented with some grapefruit. There is a decent hopping to this one. The taste is like crusty bread backed up with the grapefruit. There is also a dandelion vegetable note, sharp on the tongue in the finish from unbalanced hops here. A little soapy.

nuplastikk (4322) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 6, 2011
12oz bottle. Filtered looking orange-tan. Small, foamy head. Odd aroma, some sour that makes me suspect infection. Yep. Wow, they can’t make a good beer in LA. Really unimpressive, and frankly a straight up rip off for the price. Lemon lime disgustingness, earthy. Fuck you Bayou Teche! and you too Lazy Magnolia!! GRRRRRR!!!!
