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.

Not one of my favorites. It seems to be a little too bitter on the finish and it is not the tastiest either.

Aroma is some bread and malt mixed with some vegetal type smell. Pours nice amber colored.

Taste is rustic pale ale, a bit malty, bit bready, bit roasted, bit hops. Finish is a pleasant lingering bitter.

Mouthfeel leaves a little to be desired as its slightly carbonated, but not tremendously so. All in all its fine, but in a raw rustic sort of way

found this at bottom of dad’s refrigerator; not a bad beer thick for the style and had an earthy sloight hop spicy (little peper) finish. ok...

Bottle from ericandersnavy. Pours pale amber with a quickly disappearing beige head. Aroma is sort of aged bread with some sugary malt and floral hop. Or maybe more complicated than that. There’s a lot of malt and a lot of floral and maybe citrus hop. Actually goes a bit astringent, yet it makes me think of a light barley wine. Confusingly complicated.

(12oz bottle courtesy of Fata!!) Pours hazy light copper with massive off-white head. Nice carbonation. Aroma of bread/biscuit, nice sweet florals and hard candy. Taste is sweet malt and a sharp hop bite that fades into the background allowing the malts to resurface. Medium bodied with an oily texture and bitter finish. A respectable beer here

4/30/11. 12oz bottle courtesy fata2683. Hazy orange pour with a nice khaki head. The aroma on this is crazy. It’s like sticking my nose into a grapefruit and rubbing it around... and some orange peel and other weird tropical fruits. Maltier flavor with caramel and chocolate mixed with orange and grapefruit. Kind of a weird beer. Interesting.

I feel like I just stuck my head in a Grapefruit and tangarine goodness, very citrus, very gritty taste, a slight bit of the citrus, alright.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 26, 2011
Bottle: Pours a nice amber color with a big white head. Crisp hoppy nose with a clean malty body and a nice crisp mouthfeel. Very fresh and snappy for down south. I’m impressed.

bottle pours gold with a thin white head. Aroma is full of crackers and pale grains with hints of adjunts. Flavor is hay and grassy malts with a thin grassy and earthen hop finish.
