Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: msubulldog25 on 04-15-2010

Using Belgian malts and American hops and yeast, LA-31 Bière Pâle is a distinct new style of beer. Traditionally brewed, we classify it as a Bière Pâle, or Louisiana Pale Ale. It is bronze colored with a biscuity malt center, herbal hop flavors and a gentle, mellow bitterness. This beer is crafted to enhance the unique cuisine and lifestyle of South Louisiana.

12oz bottle with pry-off cap poured into a pint glass. Best By date of 04/04/2015

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy amber with 1 finger of head

Smell: Mild notes of caramel, toffee and some slight floral hop aromas

Taste: Similar to the aroma but stronger with an underlying hop bitterness

Mouthfeel: Medium with a crisp finish

Overall: A great pale ale for someone looking for balance. All the right notes are here including some caramel malt flavors, hop bitterness, and some yeast esters all with a good clean finish. Pairs very well with LA cuisine. A solid offering, but this will seem underwhelming to those who prefer the highly hopped APAs.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: clear orange in color with a short 1/4" head thats breaks down quickly.

Smell: light caramel and a hint of floral hops are soft on the nose.

Taste: caramel, orange citrus, and a mild floral hop presence are the main flavors. Very simple and straight forward pale ale.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp throughout. Relatively clean aftertaste.

Overall: a mild pale ale that won't overly excite you but it is mildly refreshing.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is kind of malty, a bit of hops. Taste is light and refreshing. Well balanced bready malts and piney hops. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall an easy drinking and quality beer.
