Fairly classic bock. Heavy bread tones. Very malty yet crisp. No off tones finishes dry. Enjoyable and a nice unexpected throw in from Ron.

Mardi Gras Bock pours as a caramel colored body with a pleasant white head. Aroma is malty and laced with caramel. First taste begins with a malt driven solid flavor that is semi sweet and finishes mildly bitter with lingering caramel notes. A good brew overall, a solid dinner pairing for red meat dishes.

Not a huge fan. Only set me back a buck fifty, but itís a thin, seltzery beer thatís well below average for the style. Slightly bready malty and sweet, but generic and boring as well.

Bottle purchased as part of a mixed sixer at Kroger Stoneridge. Clear amber pour with a thick beige head. Aroma of malt, sweetness, caramel, lager yeast and light noble hop. Malty flavor with sweet caramel, light fruit and light hop before a sweet finish.

Disappointed. No aroma and a light color with a watery palate. Malty flavor of old bread with a slight hops presence.

Drinking the Abita Christmas Bock. Too hoppy and bitter for my taste. It was a gift so Iím not out money for trying it. Have the remaining bottles to use as marinade for brats.

Copper pour. Nose of candied caramel and light fruit. Light minerals and some diacetyl. Flavor is lager/light adjunct malt with a touch of fruit and caramel. Light bitterness. Not great, but certainly better than a good number of the ratings.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle as Mardi Gras Bock - Pours dark gold with a one finger off-white head. It has a light, caramel malt aroma. It tastes of sweet malt with a little caramel and hops bitterness that while still fairly mild, is more bitter than usual for a bock. Overall itís drinkable but struggles to reach average quality.
