Deep amber colour. The aroma is quite malty and a little bit sweet.
Some iced tea and a bit of sweet resin as well. A little bit estery
character in this one along with a bit of light bitterness. Pretty
nice red ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Pours deep crazy mahogany reddish, small beige head, decent lacing. Aroma is caramel, bready, nutty. Flavor is medium sweet, light bitter, mega malty, caramel, dark bread, biscuit, roasted nuts. More like an Irish ale. Not a lot of hi Acton going on, maybe some faded pine.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Avenue Pub post-Mardi Gras. Pours amber (duh). More malty than hoppy but fairly balanced overall. Nothing really standing out, but itís a fine job and serves its purpose.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
One of many local choices I ordered this to see what the local flavor is. After sampling a couple my suspicions were confirmed. Unless thereís something I overlooked Abita is the best option for a state tick. Otherwise drink it for the atmosphere of being down south.
Aroma / Appearance - Ruby red with a glowing base the body is as warm as the humid air outside. Roses, cherries, and malt mix in the way that isnít flawed but doesnít have a punch. It is as lazy and listless as the warm summer afternoon during the peak of the day.
Flavor / Palate - Thin cherry Twizzlers tickle the palate before the transition becomes pie crust and malt. A bit timid and plain this is one of those beers that you forget as soon as you order the next pint. I donít think Iíll be clamoring to try many more NOLA releases the next time I am in the neighborhood.
