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.

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.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a light amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Resilient lacing trickles down the glass leaving clots of lacing behind.

S- Sweet cereal grain from the malt, mild hop aroma and a surprising amount of effervescence. Also an odd buttery smell as multiple sniffs are taken.

T- Good balance between the malt and hops with a pleasant bittersweet duality. Very drinkable but I don't know if it's a given that it's like that since there's no ABV listed.

M- Has a crisp bite with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- I don't know why this beer has such a low score. Yeah, it doesn't have that "wow" factor, but it's a decent pale ale with plenty of good qualities.

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

A: The beer is relatively clear yellowish amber in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high off white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and lots of lacy rings of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of herbal hops and biscuit malts are present in the nose. It becomes a little maltier as the beer warms up.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of biscuit hops along with notes of earthy yeast and hints of herbal hops, the latter of which also contribute a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this beer to be rather interesting as it's quite different compared to typical American Pale Ales and seems a little reminiscent of a Bière De Garde.
