Brewpub swill....this is their answer to guy who walks in and asks for a coors light or asks which of their beers is most similar to their favorite BMC. Lots of adjunct in this beer, no character at all.

Very "lively" light body with straw scent to it. Virtuallly no head, but hey it's a pils. Good for the style, but little to no complexity in the character.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very pale yellow with fizzy bubbles and a light, sweet aroma. Very light body with a surprising amount of bitterness. More of a bite to this beer than your average macro-wanna-be. Tasty and refreshing, especially since in New Orleans you can buy a big plastic cup of this and just walk around the streets in the languid humidity, drinking.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale yellow, but has a nicely lacing white head. Lightly sweet with green apple notes and an oaty, grainy flavor. Good crisp hop finish.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Slightly hazy and yellow-gold with a thin head. Clean and inviting nose. Light and grainy malts. Light hops offer a slight spiciness and a bitterish finish. Hint of alcohol was a nice touch. No major qualms; about what I expected, which was nothing much. This beer is definitely geared toward the macro drinkers that happen to wander in.

Itís too bad beer canít live on its aroma alone, because this one smelled heavenly. But, there were a lot of problems once the actual tasting began. The bitterness keeps this offering afloat, for what otherwise might have been a lost cause. Has a creamy aftertaste, but is thin and amateurish in the fore and mid taste. At $4.25 a pop, and having suffered through the Red Stallion and tolerated the Pilsner, I wasnít about to try any of the other Crescent City Brews. But, based upon other Ratebeer.com ratings, Iím guessing the Pilsner is their best.

Like all of the crescent city beers, it tastes a little spicy. Itís not like it has a bite to it, but it leaves a bit of a sting on my throat. Very drinkable, and probably the smoothest of all the crescent city line.

Obviously what theyíd serve to anyone asking for a Bud or Coors Light though the slight Saaz aroma may be befuddling to the American macro drinker. Skunkless, drinkable and light, this should do the trick for who love drinking beer but donít necessarily like beer flavors and aromas.

Letís get this straight: New Orleans is not a beer town. Nor should it be - the craziness of the city caters to light, easy drinking stuff and this pils fills the beer admirably. Itís the only decently carbonated Crescent City beer, colored a faint yellow, with only a si\light but sharp hop nuance to color the otherwise clean American standardesque malt.
