Voodoo Bengal Pale Ale
(Tin Roof Brewing Company)

Today is Mardi Gras and what better way to celebrate than with a can of craft beer from Louisiana. Voodoo Bengal is the Tin Roof Brewing's third canned release and although they aren't in New Orleans, the brewery is located in the state capital of Baton Rouge, the entire state celebrates Mardi Gras not just the Big Easy! Cheers!

From the Tin Roof Brewing site:

"American-style pale ale with layers of intense flavors. Generously hopped, this brew draws on pale, honey and caramel malts to provide the perfect balance between bitterness, aroma, and malt character. Pairs well with anything spicy…especially crawfish, gumbo, and jambalaya."

Here we go...

Pour - dark honey, amber in appearance with a half inch of off white head. Clean looking pour with solid carbonation levels. 

Aroma - bready and biscuity with some caramel notes. Hints of faint citrus are also present. 

Taste - the first thing that hits the palate is wave of malt sweetness which is balanced nicely by the citrusy hops. Fairly light-bodied but very much full-flavored. The finish has a nice bite that is crisp and pleasant on the tongue. 


Overall - a little more on the malty side of the pale ale spectrum and leaning perhaps towards that of an amber ale. Irregardless, this a very easy drinking pale with plenty of flavor from both the malt bill and the hops. Love the can design as well - bright colors and a great "voodoo bengal" motif on the back of the can.


Design - like the other cans from Tin Roof, Voodoo Bengal's design was done by Unreal out of New Orleans. It follows the idea of a simple, two-color look which takes advantage of the natural aluminum. The reverse of the can features features imagery of a tiger voodoo doll.  


Note -  Tin Roof Brewing Company is the city of Baton Rouge's first craft brewery. The brewery opened its doors in 2010 and began canning shortly thereafter.
