COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Abita Bock is brewed with Perle hops and British pale and caramel malts. Our Bock is similar to a German Maibock in its high malt content, full body and slightly higher alcohol content. Available January-March.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2008 Mardis Gras BockPours a orangish gold color. Thick head on the pour that quickly dissipated. The smell is weak with a faint toffee smell. The flavor isn’t bad, but nothing exceptional. A sweet malt flavor up front with faint hop bite at the end. Not a bad bock, just nothing outstanding about it.

(Bottle) Pours an amber color with a small white head. Sweet aroma, with a nice malty taste. Some grain in the taste as well. High carbonation, yet decent mouthfeel. Pretty ordinary, nothing really stands out in this beer. I like it better than many of their brews though.

Abita seems good a brewing down the middle brews. Most are drinkable but none excell in their respective styles.

Abita Mardi Gras Bock

Date: 4/25/2007
Event: Junedale Beer Klub - April Beer Tasting (Maibocks)
Serving: 12 oz bottles shared by __?__.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: Light malts with some vanilla and cream.
Appearance: Clear amber/brown color with a diminishing off-white head. Mild level of carbonation and some lacing is also present.
Flavor: Grainy malts, vanilla/cream, slightly buttery as well.
Palate: Soft, mellow, smooth, and clean.
Overall: Many Abita brews seem to have a similar "grainy" quality to them as well. This beer is drinkable, but seems to be lacking somewhat.

Draft at Abita Brew Pub. Nice dark brown color. Malty smell and taste. Decent head. Can’t really give it’s outstanding characteristics but, just a very good tasting bock.

Very similar overtones to the turbodog. Very malty with a carbonated finish with a small amount of hops. Sometimes this comes across as too sweet, but I like it nonetheless.

So here is the deal. I sat down to do my taxes and got one of these Abita "beers" out of the fridge to accompany me. Honestly, I would rather do another tax return than have another of these. It is at times like this that I wish beer DIDN’T come in 6’ers. That means I have to drink 5 more of the "bocks." What went so wrong for me? Well, first off it smells like wet grain and cardboard. Mmmm. It only gets better. Let me ask you this, just because Abita is located in Louisiana, does it have to make beer that tastes like swamp in a bottle? Just wondering. Dirty, sour and of no contest to Einbecker, HB or any other mai-bock out there. Now I just need to find a sink that will accept this pour.

Clear dark amber body with a medium frothy white head. Sweet honey and caramel aroma. Sweet caramel and some roasted malt and graininess.

Kinda nasty thick cloying beer without much carbonation. Could be worse though.
