I don't see a bottle date. On a side-note the bottle is a twist-off.

Appearance: The body is a light gold to straw color with a slight amount of haze. There is no head but there is a small thin ring of foam around the rim.

Aroma: There is no real aroma with the exception of a very slim hint of corn.

Taste: There is a very light bit of hop bitterness in the beer with just a touch of alcohol and a bit of corn flavor way in the back. It is not a bad tasting beer but it just doesn't have a lot of flavor.

Mouthfeel: It feels about average in carbonation and it has a light body. It feels very light on the palate and just a touch watered down but it is not to the point where it impends the drinking experience.

Overall: It is a fairly average tasting AAL that isn't going to knock anyone's socks off but at the same time it isn't bad. It's not a beer I would particularly drink again or recommend but I wouldn't turn it down either.

Poured from 12-ounce bottle into lager flute. Attractive light golden color, with a two-finger fluffy white head that actually stuck around for a while and left quite a bit of pretty lacing. Aromas and flavors typical for the style, only with a little more depth and with a little more body. Although palatable when cold, a whole lot of unpleasant sweetness dominates on the palate as it warms. Above average.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

4.5% ABV per the label.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of grain, corn flake, and sugar aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and sweetened corn flake flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a below average beer that is pretty much just grain and sugar qualities all around.

Serving type: bottle.

Breakfast beer.

Or so I've heard it called in New Orleans, one of the premier food cities in the Country. Contract brewed now it's not very different from the original which may have been developed as a food beer from the beginning. As a Native Southerner that sounds right to me. The beer is a lightly colored, standard AAL that is a little more flavored than one would expect of it's ilk. Historically not the best brew in the city, (anybody remember Jax?) but decent enough to wash down some shellfish at the Acme Oyster House. I think it's appeal now is mainly nostalgic.

Worth trying but not really worth seeking out.
