Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent lighter orangish gold with thin white lacing. Smells of lager yeast and malt with mild notes of caramel. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not bad, but forgettable.

Bottle. Pours an off orange tan color. The aroma is grain and caramel. The taste is basically a malty pilsner with a sweet caramel note on the finish but, bland overall. Palate is smooth with medium carb. Pretty good. - Might as well have Mardi Gras Bock on Fat Tuesday. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Abita Mardi Gras (supposedly the same beer) is a decent brew from a brewery that has a big reach. Malty aroma coming from copper pour with a fizzy head. Taste is malty with just enough hop notes to balance it somewhat. Body is a little light, but the beer goes well with food. Mardi Gras Bock is definitely a beer to drink during the season or with any food.

This beer was purchased under the alias of "Mardi Gras" Bock. Pours out a deep golden yellow. Slight aroma of sugar and hay then vegetables. Taste is sweet some bready notes. This beer is somewhat astringent and everything everyother Abita beer I’ve ever had was....disapointing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
As "Mardi Gras Bock." Pours a clear dark gold with a decently thick fine bubbled cream-colored head that leaves some hanging lace. Nose involves noble hop spice, doughy yeast, and caramel and toasted malt. Fairly sweet, decently bitter. Medium bodied, pretty active, finishing clean and lightly bitter. Tasty beverage, a nice stronger lager.

12oz bottle shared. Ours a bright orange color with off white head. Aroma is medium malt and light touches of caramel. The flavor has hints of caramel and plenty of malts. Very minor bitterness in the hops. Overall not that impressed. But this is drinkable.

12 oz bottle (Mardi Gras Bock) from Tipsy’s into a goblet. Light amber, clear appearance with an average white head and light lacing. Mild aroma of toasted malts, caramel, fruit, floral notes and light herbs/spices. Similar flavor, malty and crisp with a light earthy bitterness. Average body with ample carbonation and a lasting finish. Decent.
