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.

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 (2037) - 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.

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.

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

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.
