Having just left a rather muddy Jazz Fest, it seemed appropriate to drink a native Louisianian beer. This seemed perfect.
Poured a less-pale-than-you-would think gold with a tall, value-killing head. Smelled like smoke. Oh wait--that was the bar. It actually had a pleasant aroma that was mostly malt. Some light grassy hops were there, but muted. On the sweet side. Taking a sip confirmed my suspicions--this stuff is mostly malty. What Garrett Oliver calls 'balance' must be the sweetness that lingers after a swig. It's not bad, but it's not what I'm looking for with this style of beer. I'm no hop-head, but I expect pale ale to be fairly dry and with hop taste and aroma; this was lacking. Oh well.
Serving type: on-tap

LA 31 Bier Pale at the Bayou Burger bar in NOLA served in a goblet!
The beer is a dark copper with a clingy tan-beige head.
Beer has an aroma of caramel, nuts and spice. I found it inviting and fresh.
Taste is mildly bitter with lots of sweet malts. Slightly nutty with some low levels of spice and citrus. I like how this one hangs together.
The mouth is good. Nice carbonation over a medium body.
