COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Abita Andygator®, a creature of the swamp, is a unique, high-gravity brew made with pale malt, German lager yeast, and German Perle hops. Unlike other high-gravity brews, Andygator® is fermented to a dry finish with a slightly sweet flavor and subtle fruit aroma. Reaching an alcohol strength of 8% by volume, it is a Helles Doppelbock.

Bottled@Akkurat, Stockholm. Yellowish golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is mild maltyness, some bread and mild alcohol. Flavour is bready malts, some slight floral and grassy hops. Hides the ABV rather well, but is at the same time quite watery for being 8 % abv.

omhper (20750) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2010
Bottled at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Clear golden, brief head. Having had less favourable experiences with other Abita beers I approached this with some caution. I was greeted by deep buttery malt, grass and some fruitiness. It came out pleasantly dry with a well built rounded body. Some husky buttery malt dominates the flavours until a light salty bitterish finish with a slight alcohol warmth. A restrained and well balanced heller bock, much more authentic than expected and with a really good malt profile.

yngwie (14923) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2011
Bottle, 22oz. A clear, golden beer topped by a small, off-white to light beige head. The aroma has some cooked vegetables as well as pale malts and some hops. Sweet flavor with pale malts, quite fruity. Medium to full body. Fruity finish. It hides the alcohol very well, but I don’t think it’s very succesful as a pale bock. I have to admit pale bock isn’t my favorite style, and this one not being top notch certainly don’t make me crave for more. 110107

Bomber from BevMo. Dark gold color with a multifinger frothy white head. Aromas of grain and veg and canteloupe? Medium plus body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is grain, sugar (not kandi), and something like mild noble hop. It starts rather pale malty, but, barring what sticks to your lips, it finishes dryish. Even some hop bitter comes forth in the end. It’s a very different sort of thing. I think it’s rather underrated because it is so far off the beer norms. Keep an open mind folks.
