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.

Reaching an alcohol strength of 8% by volume, it is a Helles Doppelbock.

Draught at Sunset Grill, early 2008. Wasnt sure what this was at the time of drinking it, but thought it was some Belgian Strong Golden, though I suppose a heller doppel bock is reasonable. It says fermented to a dry finish, and while I wont call it overly dry, by any means, its not obnoxiously sweet and the alcohol isnt overbearing. Warming allowed for some DMS like flavors and the hops never really made an appearance, but for some floral, lightly dusty notes upon opening. Not offensive, though Im rating it more of a Belgian ale than a doppel bock, which it dosent really resemble in the least bit.

Bottled 355ml. -from Pivoteka Zagreb. Darker golden coloured, medium sized white to off-white head, alcohol in the nose. Sweet malty, caramel, alcohol, notes of fruity hoppy and rather strong grainy touch in the finish. Expected more.

Marko (4263) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 30, 2015
Thanks Franski for sharing this with us! Poured a full golden body with a small white head. Sweet, slightly malty taste, a bit grainy, some glue, very light banana milkshake notes. hm. Copypaste that into the taste, only with more alcohol, thin and slightly dryish. Could pass as a random, just slightly above average macro strong lager.

A smooth flavor, nothing really stand out for this one. I wouldn't reach for this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a nice refreshing beer, surprisingly light for 8%abv. Crisp and subtle fruit flavors with a nice clean finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bartzluke (270) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 21, 2015
12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into a stemmed tulip glass. Pours hazy, but fairly clear. Huge fluffy white head with moderate retention. Golden. Nose is malt, flowers, and candy. Mouthfeel is moderate. Taste is fairly odd for me. Candy sweetness, a little malt, some honey, biscuit, pineapple, maybe even banana. I’m having some trouble pinning the taste down. No alcohol notes notable, which is surprising for an eight percent pale beer. Well crafted, I’d say, but not my thing.

JDBaker11058 (1518) - Maryland, USA - APR 20, 2015
Appearance: clear deep gold, with a short, fizzy white head that shrank and vanished quickly. Aroma: strong lager nose, with honeyed grains, a bit of floral hops and white bread. Taste: bready and grainy, with a big dose of honey, light pineapple, and shortbread cookies. Finish: lingering floral and slightly herbal hops, but with a sweet, slightly sticky note lasting too. Notes: Never had a ’helles doppelbock’ before. Light like a helles, not as boozy or malty as a true doppelbock. More like one of those crazy Russian strong pale lagers but, you know, GOOD. Bottle from Total Wine & More, Fairfax, Virginia (Pickett Center).
