Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

A-medium amber with a nice creamy tan head. great lacing

S-passion fruit, guava, grapefruit. smells great, but not strong enough. but wow its tasty smelling

T-comes in with a beautifully bitter tropical fruit flavor.its a good quality taste but doesn't last too long before heading in to a hoppy/grainy after-taste that reminds me of a pilsner. its really tasty.

M-medium carbonation with a good crisp finish

O-well this is probably one of the best APAs i've ever had. its so hoppy that it borderlines a full IPA. the tastes all mesh together so well. i could drink this all night long. this needs to be everywhere! this is very well put together. find this, and buy this!

I saw LA 31 at a liquor store in Florida and it intrigued me. I was excited to try it, but the excitement left when I opened the first bottle. The beer had a good smell and look, but it's taste was lacking. The initial taste was decent but the after tast was no good. It was too bitter. Overall, it was a decent beer but I would not buy it again.

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

12oz bottle. Pours a translucent golden yellow color with an inch of thick head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is cut grass with a hint of pine and honey. Some bready malts. The taste is the malts with some honey and some grass. Pine hops and cut grass towards the end with a cereal finish. More malt flavor than hops. Mouthfeel is slightly creamy. Fairly drinkable. Overall, not a bad beer but nothing special. No need to buy this one again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

On tap in Brookhaven GA.
Flavor: Has a nearly equal malt/hop balance. Rather malty for style although the hops come out in the finish and aftertaste.

Feel: Medium body and carbonation.

O. More like a brown ale than an APA. Well crafted if unexceptional.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a mild amber color with a golden hue and thick white head into my glass. I don't think that I've any of their offerings.

Just a touch of pine bitterness in the nose. Not much else to write about.

Drinks like an English pale ale. Buttery malt but with enough bitterness to differentiate it from such.

Sweet, buttery malt lines the back of the throat.

It's certainly drinkable. Not sure if I'd pick it up again though.
