Abita Andygatorģ, 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, Andygatorģ 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.

Smooth and refreshing. Had this with dinner at the Angry Crab. It was 115 degrees yesterday and I would drink this again any day. For being 8% ABV very smooth.

Bomber Pours with a small bubbly head. Great aroma was present. Tastes of bitter/sour hay, little citrus, and has a somewhat harsh finish.

Taste-Has a really flavorful grassy flavor with a nice alcohol finish. Palate- A medium bodied brew with mild carbonation, with a dry finish. Overall- OI really like this brew. This is my favorite Abita brew so far

Smells like fresh corn tortillas, and almost tastes like them, too. Balanced, mildly spiced. Gingerbread. The first Abita Iíve liked.

Bottle. Beautiful golden color with a bright white head. Nice lacing. Fruit and spice nose. Honey and melon rind jump out at me. Sweet malt and yeast in the mouth. A fair amount of alcohol is present but the finish is really dry. Iím pretty impressed with how the alcohol builds the flavor in the mouth and then fades into the background. Some yeast fruitiness jumps out midway through the taste as well. The hops are present but provide just the right balance. Iím surprised by the poor ratings of this beer. I may be way off, but I really enjoyed this beer.

Sweet to smell with a fruitful bouquet. Sweet full taste with a slight remnant after taste.

Golden and clear with a nice frothy head. Straw, honey, Apple, and chalk aromas. Nice balance between malty sweetness and slight hoppy bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer makes me feel special. I love the tight bubbles that are constantly flowing upwards. This beer kind of reminds me of a rich manís Budweiser. It has a beautiful golden color with a creamy, fluffy, surprisingly lasting head. The taste is of honey and corn. Itís very drinkable and very smooth. I donít get the low rating here. I think it may have something to do with the fact that when people try this, they are expecting a dopple bock. Itís not. Itís a very, very good pilsner. Iím glad I finally tried it after seeing it on the shelf for so long. Oh, and by the way, the 8% alcohol is VERY well hidden. Be careful!
