I travel all over the world. I try to drink local beer and this one was recommended. Their are a lot of other amber beers that are better than this one.

Always liked this beer when in NOLA. On tap for lunch at Napoleon house (my go to muffuletta when I’m here).

Crystal clear, copper appearance. Just a tasty malt forward lager. Nothing off at all about his brew. I’m sensitive to too much caramel and this pushes the boundary, but I’m still a fan.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Cloudy red orange, smells and tastes of toast. Light, easy drinking feel. Very good, I’d like to try it again.
