Poured at the Avenue Pub, New Orleans
Then poured into a glass at our hotel before heading down to the French Quarter Fest.
A: Clear, reddish/amber with an off white, one finger head that hung around for the Fest. Great lacing.
S: Piney hops dominate, followed by malts and brown sugar.
T: Hop forward on the first swallow. Then a settling down of the hops, mixing with malt, caramel and brown sugar. Slight hoppy finish that blends well with the overall taste.
M: Medium with creamy carbonation. Full bodied.
O: My #2 fave from NOLA, following Smokey Mary. A great red ale. The growler beckoned our return from the Fest that night. A yummy nightcap.
Serving type: growler

On tap at Walk Ons in Lafayette, LA.
A: Pours a clear dark reddish/brown color. A two finger white head forms with good retention. Plenty of lace is left behind.
S: Toasted malts, baked bread, lingering hoppy bitterness. Not a lot of depth, but enjoyable.
T: Follows the nose with a nice toasted malt flavor. Bread and biscuit. Lingering hops. Standard, but enjoyable.
M/D: A light to medium body. Crisp carbonation, but a bit on the thin side. Easy to drink. I put back several without a thought.
Enjoyable and easy to drink. Nothing too exciting, but something to enjoy and nothing to turn down.
Serving type: on-tap
