2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
1 pt. 6 oz. bottle:
Pours bright golden yellow with a fluffy/foamy white head that leaves some lacing.
The smell is of sweet grain, somewhat nutty with lemongrass.
The taste is of sweet grainy, slightly nutty with a hint of yellow apples, honey, and spices.
It has a thickish, syrupy medium body. Medium to high carbonation saves this brew from sickly sweetness.
I appreciate experimentation with imperial styles, but this one just doesnít work that well for me. I donít think the beer is poorly conceived. But I donít think that it really works as a style. Nice try but just not my cup of tea.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 650ml bottle on 17/8/2014 (shared by Butz with thanks). Pours a clear olden with a medium head. The aroma features some bready malt and honeyish notes. In the mouth, itís quite sweet with more honey and some bready malt, finishing with a decent bitter kick and just a hint of alcohol. That said, itís pretty easy drinking for 8%. Quite good.

Andygator is nice. This Helles Doppelbock is a nice amber color with no head. Has a smooth full mouth feel with a good balance and nice non bitter finish. Like it but watch out like the bottle says sip don't gulp, it has a way of sneaking up

Bottle at tradewinds. Nose is yeast and toffee sweetness. Smooth big mouthfeel and a bit of alcohol bite. Notes of yeast malt raisins and mild hop acridity. Not bad but not great. Fits the genre nicely.

Bottle. Pours a medium straw color. White head. Sweet aroma. Flavor is malty and sweet.. Decent body. I may be at odds with some of the other raters, but I found this to be surprisingly good. I wasnít expecting much but I liked it and would drink it again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle: Aroma has got a grassy hop texture with a nice mixture of nutty malt. Appearance is a clear golden with a hint of amber hue intermingled with a medium white head that dissipates quickly. Taste has got a nice malt characteristic, grassy sweet hop notes, and just a touch of alcohol burn. Plate is medium to low carbonation with an aftertaste with a slightly sticky finish. Overall, Itís a strange amalgamation of hops and malts. Nothing really off putting but decent. Cheers!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Abita Andigator is a big beer that falls short. Fail pour with a flat top but a deep amber color. Light perfumey aroma. Taste is malty followed by a boozy bite with strong perfume hop finish. Andigator is interesting but with a few flaws.
