The Catahoula Common isn’t quite so common. It’s a light colored refreshing lager with the “bite” of an ale. Its medium body and slight fruitiness from the atypical fermentation temperature creates an enjoyable Louisiana weather brew.

can @ Calandro’s / Baton Rouge LA --- Clear medium amber, white head that quickly recedes to a thin cover, strips of lace. Taste is sweet malt, light carbonation, and mild hops. The sweet overbalances what is otherwise a simple brew.

Can - Pours a pale gold with thin white head. Not much aroma, but flavors of crackers, hints of citrus fruit, aaaaaaand I got nothing else to add. Ok... a crisp bitter, dry smack end.

Another beer I drank in New Orleans that I would have completely forgot about if I hadn’t written it down. I wonder how many I truly forgot?

Tap - average size foamy head, light gold color, balanced aroma and flavor with light crackery malts, earthy hops, and mild bitter finish, kind of general flavor and ok overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Catahoula Common has a thick, off-white head, a clear, burnished-gold appearance, bubble streams, and some lacing left behind (see Anchor Steam Beer, for comparison). Aroma is of rich, spicy, grassy, grain, and the flavor is of sweet malt, a touch of fruit, and spicy & grassy hops. Mouthfeel is medium, and Gnarly Barley’s Catahoula Common finishes crisp and refreshing (like Coors Banquet!). RJT

On tap at Ole Saint. Pours a clear gold with medium creamy white head that lasts. The aroma is wheat and grain. Thin mouth, similar flavors to nose, light finish, decent.

(En fût à The Green Room Lafayette): Des céréales bien agglutinées et machable pour supporter une enveloppe noble fruitée et herbacée. Simple et sans bavure.

My Bottom Line:
Mashed cereals smother wooden, leafy hops in this very drinkable brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the shiny dark yellow.
-Citrusy accents are found as well.
-Malt flavors are well developed for a delicate brew.
-Carbonation is soft and low.
-This was great with oysters. A simple, well-made, very pleasant brew.

On tap at Pêche, New Orleans.

On tap a couple of places in New Orleans a few weeks ago.Clear yellow pour, medium white head that leaves some spotty lacing. Caramel, malt, a little wheat in the aroma. Mostly malt, a little yeast and a very slight hop bite in the finish. Watery. Not much here, but fine on a summer day in ridiculously humid NOLA.

Aroma is fruit, pale malts and beery. The flavor is fruit, mild hops and a tart/malty finish.
