Catahoula Common has a thick, off-white head, a clear, burnished-gold appearance, bubble streams, and some lacing left behind (see Anchor Steam Beer, for comparison). Aroma is of rich, spicy, grassy, grain, and the flavor is of sweet malt, a touch of fruit, and spicy & grassy hops. Mouthfeel is medium, and Gnarly Barley's Catahoula Common finishes crisp and refreshing (like Coors Banquet!).

First had poured from 1/2 growler into (jelly jar) mug. This is not an innovative new lager style a la Jack's Abby, but Catahoula Common is a very solid lager, from a promising new Louisiana brewery.

I might have gotten a bad batch, but beer was very average. Had a distinct starsan taste. Edited review, initial was definitely from an infected beer.

Draft pour in a shaker pint glass.

A bit hazy, yellow orange in color, foamy white head. mild aroma, slightly sweet. Same with taste. Grainy malt, cracked corn, a bit of earthiness, some noble hops? Medium body and carbonation. Very easy to drink, and nice mild flavor. Great for a hot New Orleans day.
