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.

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.

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 (4702) - 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!!!!

Bottle - pours amber with a thin tan head. Has a nice hoppy roasty flavor to it with a good clean mouthfeel and a nice finish. Better than I expected.

In pint glass from bottle bought at local grocery. Poured an attractive amber with small but nice head and moderate carbonation. Aroma was not hoppy at all, not much aroma really. Just hints of malt and maybe a tiny bit of hop spice. Taste was bitter, earthy, and spicy with mild malty flavors mixed in, but the whole thing was kind of thin and watery. No body. Just a below average american pale ale. Too bitter and out of balance. I want more hopiness on the nose and flavor in my APA. The watery body and lack of deliciousness makes this a below average beer.

Draft. Amber body with a pale head. Solid APA with a tasty hop profile. If you see it, get one.

piscator34 (1995) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 12, 2011
Bottled sample. Copper in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of pale and biscuit malt, faint caramel, and a touch of spicy hops. Bready pale malts lead the way in the mouth, with a bit of light caramel and herbal hop mixed in. Moderate bitterness and fairly light bodied. Not a whole lot of hop aroma or flavour for an APA, and not dark or malty enough to be an amber either. An odd duck.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2011
Bottle. Eye-pleasing murky amber/orange. Aromas of citrus, malt and cherry hard candy. Nice gritty texture. Good bitterness from both hops and alcohol, finishing with a young wood aftertaste. Straightforward and likeable.

Bought at Stein’s and basically stared down all weekend at Avenue .. . Pours a light ruby/ dark gold .. medium foam, light sticky lacing .. . has a light dose of hops, some syrup and resin .. . pretty simple but for the region and the brewer, quite delightful .. . mild yet quite damn enjoyable .. . Ok, our mission failed but we learned a lot. Primarily that girls do not have balls.
