Green Room Papa Louie’s Azacca APA 3.5
~14 oz Willebecher cask at Green Room Burgers & Beer in Kansas City, Missouri. I was served the first pour off of the cask. The pour is a cloudy orange golden with a well formed 1/2 inch white head. The aroma is fresh citrus hop, bit of dry herbal, and general bitterness towards the back. The taste is bright bitter citrus, some of the citrus peel, herbal and balanced against toast caramel malt. The finish is clean and bitter. The palate is low cask carbonation with a mouth feel which is dry and the clean bitter end. Easy drinking, solid beer.

Solid Saison.

Green Room Papa Louie’s Gold Pale Ale 2.9
Tap - small foamy head, mildly hazy medium gold color, mildly smokey aroma and flavor, earthy hops, apparently this was made with peaches but it doesn’t really come through, OK overall Addendum: as the beer warmed up a bit, some mild peach notes did start to come through, and the smokeyness mellowed out a little ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Green Room Papa Louie’s Andi’s Ale with Raspberries 3.5
Cask Willi Becher at the brewpub in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is a hazed brown with a one inch off white head. The aroma is nutty earthy brown along with fresh raspberry sweet fruit. The taste is a nice blend of the softly sweet caramel nut malt and raspberry fruit. The palate is light to medium bodied, soft cask carbonation and a clean fruit sweet finish. Nice one.

Green Room Papa Louie’s Bird Lives 3.7
Willi Becher draft at the brewpub in Kansas City, Missouri. Right off the bat - that’s a generous pour of a 10.8% beer. The pour is a murky copper brown with a well formed 1 inch off white head. The aroma is citrus resin, floral notes, grass, a bit of a peanut shell and softly malt sweet. The taste is big upfront in the resin citrus, pine, floral, the grass and mineral of the nose, along with an almost smoky element that is sort of toasty. The palate is medium bodied with soft carbonation and the dry mineral slight alcohol finish. Managed the booze really well. These big booze hop bombs aren’t really my thing anymore, but this was a nice one.

Indra
Green Room Papa Louie’s Bird Lives 3.7
On draft at the brewpub. Aroma of juicy citrus, hop florals, lightly honeyish malts, faint pine, alcohol, grapefruit and a touch of pineapple. Opaque light-medium copper-brown in color with a slight, fading head but plenty of intricate lacing. Flavor profile is pretty intensely hoppy, but not overwhelming on bitterness, with plenty of spice, citrus, pine, mildly peppery alcohol and a toasty, light caramel malt backbone, the finish is definitely where the bitterness comes to the fore (there’s those IBUs!). Resinous and lightly oily on the palate, relatively low in effervescence and warming, body is quite full. Very flavorful but still pretty drinkable for such a big beer. Nice one!

Indra
Green Room Papa Louie’s Stout 3.4
On cask at the brewpub, dry-hopped with Cascade. Aroma of roasty malt, chocolate, grapefruit, green, leafy hop, faint coffeeish roast, earthiness, and a very faint dried fruit character in the background (raisin). Opaque black in color with a foamy, lasting, light tan head. Flavor profile is strongly roasty and hoppy, more coffee and green, leafy hop flavor present, lightly resinous and featuring a dryish, chocolatey finish, more earthiness here as well. Smooth as only cask ale can be, no discernible carbonation on the palate with a medium body. Good stuff! It seems like the blend of citric, grapefruity Cascades and a big roasty Stout shouldn’t work as well as it does.

Green Room Papa Louie’s Lemon Lime Lawnmower Pale Ale 3.7
On cask at the brewpub, Sept. 2013. Huge, floral, citric hop aroma, including the expected lemon and lime but also featuring tinges of leafy herbs and spice, very floral and bright with notes of tangerine, melon, vanilla, mango and pale, lightly sweet malts. Hazy medium golden in color, head is frothy, creamy and lasting with plenty of thick lacing. Flavor profile is nicely hoppy and citric as well, with loads of tropical fruit, bubblegum, more lemony lime, fainter orange and grapefruit, along with some pale, lightly honeyish, sweet malt, but relatively low bitterness. Smooth and low in effervescence as befits a cask ale, body is medium. Really nice and tasty.

Green Room Papa Louie’s Chicha 3.3
I had a couple of ~2 oz samples at the Boulevardia Taps & Tastes in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is lightly hazed golden with a small white head. The aroma is corn, earthy dirt and a light herbal character. The taste is grain corn, the earth herbal, and finishes with more grain corn. The palate is medium bodied, light to almost no carbonation and a dry earth finish. Fun beer.

Green Room Papa Louie’s Stout 3.5
This was available on draft, as well as on two different casks with differing dry hop treatments (Amarillo and Belma). The pour (into a frozen Shaker pint glass) is black with a small khaki head. The aroma is faint with a bit of roast and bright floral and citrus hop. The taste is the roasted malt, along with floral fruit citrus hops and a soft caramel sweetness. Flavors works pretty well together. The palate is medium bodied, unfiltered mouth feel and low cask carbonation and the sweet hoppy roast finish. Fun beer.
