Not that good. Abita continues to make a lesser quality beer that appeals to locals to the Louisiana area. This brew was in a Mardi-Gras Label. Flavor is a bit grassy and skunky. Pour is amber with no head.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle, Kroger Bridge St., $1.69 single. Color of apple juice; lame head becomes nothing quickly. Aroma of pale malt, slight bready, slight caramel. Flavor is sugary, caramel; fairly dry finish also has a note of astringent. Thin body, abrasive carbonation. Not impressed.

Mardi Gras Bock from 12 oz bottle. Pours a clear light copper, with a small head that leaves fair lacing. Nose is sauerkraut and caramel. Taste is slightly sweet and somewhat watery. Not a beer I’d buy again.

Taste is sharply metallic, big apple, cloying sweet cherry kids juice. Sugary soda palate. Just call it like it is, a malt liquor. Thanks, David. And by thanks I mean %%^^ you.

Abita mardi gras bock on tap at the AWBF (Jan. 2014)
Bone-colored head quickly reduces to a durable ring.
Aroma: malty aroma with a hint of spicy hops and a bit if alcohol esters. Also a trace of dark fruits.
T: follows aroma, including the hint of dark fruits. Large load of caramel malts for style - but enjoying this.
Feel: medium body with medium-high carbonation.
O: respectfully good for style. ABV not hidden.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark golden color with fair head and spotty lacing. Aroma of grain, caramel with some fruit and citrus in the background. Taste of caramel with a mix of fruit and grain. Decent bitterness that lingers a bit. Moderate body, mild crispness and smooth throughout. Nothing special but still an enjoyable bock.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Copper-amber pour with a lingering off-white head and unfiltered clarity. Carbonation bubbles attach themselves to the glass. The aroma is toast for certain with a good barley malt character, toffee, brown sugar and a vague pear note. Medium body. Lots of crusty toast and butter in the taste that finishes slightly bitter. Very drinkable.
