What's wrong with you other reviewers? I am drinking it right now and it's downright good. Nice corn-like color and forward march.

Tin Roof Voodoo Bengal has a thick, frothy, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, amber appearance, streaming bubbles, and very thick lacing left on the glass. The aroma is faint, but one can detect some roasted malt, sweetness, and hop oil. Taste is of sweet malt, bread crust, bitter hops, and some light sugar. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Tin Roof Voodoo Bengal finishes mostly dry, refreshing, and drinkable. Overall, I think this is a delicious beer.

Served in a nonic pint glass at The Chimes on Highland in Baton Rouge. The beer appeared amber in color and had a thin white head. There were some visible tiny bubbles in the beer. The aroma was malty with some hops. It smelled a little sweet. The flavor was bready and mildly sweet with soem grassy hops. the body is medium with moderate carbonation. The finish is smooth and the drinkability is high. This is a very good pale ale that is worth trying.

Had on tap. Pours hazy, orange-brown in color, with minimal head. Taste is malty sweet:caramel, toffee, pale malts. On the sweeter side with medium body. Tasty pale ale that I could have several of. Really impressed with Tin Roof's interpretation of the style.

Pours a clear amber with a soapy white head that fades slowly and leaves nice lacing.

The aroma is of toast, with some scortched molasis notes, and even some roasty tones. Also a nice grassy hops in the back.

Nice balance of grassy and floral hops woth a caramel bottom. Hints of molasis and some roasty notes.

The beer feels fine. Interesting and easy to drink. Definitely try one.

The second beer from Tin Roof's initial two-beer roll-out, this one is a Pale Ale brewed with local cane syrup.

The appearance is very similar to the Perfect Tin Amber, a deep amber color with good carbonation.

The smell is sweet and hoppy simultaneously, like a good pale ale should be. The cane syrup adds a hint of molasses sweetness to the nose.

It's not overly hoppy, but still a good blend of malts, hops, and cane syrup hints.

This is my favorite of the two initial beers... again really happy to see more local brews!

I had this on at the Bayou Burger Bar on Bourbon. I think it is the best place to catch sports in the quarter. Good beer options, tons of TVs and decent food.

Served in a goblet (!), the beer is a dark copper with a really clingy tan head.

It has a nose of caramel and some citrus. It is inviting and fresh.

Taste is mildly bitter with lots of sweet malts. Slightly nutty with some low levels of citrus. I like how this one hangs together.

The mouth is good. Nice carbonation over a medium body.
