I had this beer for the first time at the Avenue Pub in New Orleans just recently. This beer is deliciously hoppy and aromatic. I even drank it on an empty stomach and it wasn’t overly heavy in body either. I look forward to whatever they plan to put out next.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bayou Teche LA-31 Biere Pale has a medium, off-white head and a very clear, sparkling amber color. Carbonation is moderate. Aroma is of hops, yeast, and bread, with a citrus aspect. Taste is very good and full, with a strong orange or marmalade component. The bitter hops level is enjoyable. Mouth-feel is medium, and this beer finishes wet. Overall, this is a delicious beer, and I highly recommend it.

Had this one on draft at Avenue Pub.
Appearance: The beer was a nice golden orange with nice white head. Lacing present throughout and creates nice webbing.
Smell: Nice pungent hop aroma with hints of citrus.
Taste: Nicely balanced pale ale. Has a wonderful hop kick which is balanced nicely with the malty sweetness. The hops provide a nice citrus flavor. I could drink this all day.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium carbonation.
Overall: This is a very well done pale ale. I originally had a bad experience with this beer in the bottle but on draft it was very drinkable and what one should expect with a pale ale. With this company Louisiana is slowly becoming a serious contender for great breweries in the South.

a real treat finding this new (to me) pale ale that rivals many of the IPA that I enjoy. Light enough body not to slow you down and flavor that will keep you coming back.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
5.74%ABV. American Pale ale.
Tapped out Amber. 16ºSRM.
Nose had some nice pine and citrus peel.
Mouthfeel is soapy. There are nice toasted malty flavors. The hops are pine, grass, pine sap, hint of spicy, maybe mint. so nice hyssop profile. Some hemp funkiness in the end which suggests some nice resinous flavors.
Finish is medium and pleasantly funky hoppy, though not obviously so. An almost flowery, perfumed finish.
Goes on Favorites List!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is grapes, pears/papaya and mild sweetness. The flavor is pear/papaya, very mild hop resin, malts, fruit and a dryish/bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz. bottle from six pack purchased at Rouses in Gretna, LA. Pours a clear light copper with a thin white head leaving good lacing. Mild hop/floral aroma as well as some earthiness and nuttiness. Medium body with the hops up front gives way to the Belgian malt flavor with a lingering sweet yet hoppy finish. Definitely unlike other APA’s, but I am for one very happy to live in south LA and able to buy this beer. Well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Barley Oak (and other places) and in bottles at many local supermarkets in southeastern LA. Copper colored pour with a medium sized head that lasts. Nice lacing. Sweet, woody, nutty, aroma. Smooth mild taste of a nice blend of malts with a nicely understated spice of hops. Tingly on the palate and full bodied. Sort of a tingling tart finish.

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