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.

12 oz bottle. Pours to a beautiful, bright, deep golden color, with a nice, white head, that fades, and a good carbonation. The nose on this beer is excellent, with lots of good toasty and pale malt aroma. The palate is very polished, with really good toasty, light nutty, and pale malt flavor, on a round clean body. This beer finishes with more of those really great toasty and pale malt flavors, then ends some herbal hop balance to take some of the malty edge off this beer. Very well done, maibock, with really fantastic malt character in aroma and flavor. Great Madri Gras beer! Match this one with a big slice of King Cake, and Laissez les bons temps rouler!

A nice malty Bock. Should be pleasing to malt-heads and is very drinkable. The only drawback is that tis beer is a little sweeter than I would like. Who cares it is Madi Gras time!!!

Nothing really remarkable, just pleasant memories. It was a sure sign of spring, Carnival and crawfish. Classic bock flavors and colors - malt, alcohol, some hops, glowing red color.

From a twist cap stubby brown bottle with a notched best before date along the left side of back label. Poured a hazy copper hued orange with a foamy off-white head that settled into a thin lacing. Aromas of faint grape fruity esters and bready malts. Moderate carbonation and a softly crisp, smooth medium bodied mouthfeel. Very malty tasting, toasted caramel and bready malts with a touch of sugariness, fruity esters, a light, soft spicy hop bitterness, a slight warming alcohol presence towards the end and a dryish sweet malty finish, a nice smooth drinkability. A decent bock, mildly tasty and quite quaffable.

Bottle. Orange colour with a off-white head. Malty, grassy aroma and a sweet caramel malty taste. Medium body with a sweet light dry finish.

Bottle (12oz). Thanks to my Summer06 SecretSanta!. Bottle best before July ... something, but what do they know? Poured clear amber with reddish tinges at the top, a small off-white foamy head. Decent aroma - bready yeast, lightly toasted cereal grain malt, a hint of alcohol and light citrus hops, maybe a hint of sulfur on warming. Tastes like a bock - bitter herbal hops, grainy toasted malt, hint of citrus and alcohol, a little floral sweetness balanced the medium bitter finish. Average boday, astringent, a little stickiness on the tongue - pretty solid, really, defnitely over 3 and one of their better offerings IMO.

Served a highly carbonated amber with a cream colored skin & thick halo. Apple juice aroma underscored by cabbage and yeast. Well-hopped and spicy flavor with a sharp mouthfeel contradicting a smooth body. Touches of fruit and honey.

Taster at the <a href=/events-detail.asp?eventID=3891>Balmoral Brewhaha. Got to this pretty late in the evening, while I was pouring. So my notes are a bit sketchy. Couldn’t gather too much of the smell, only that it was a fine "beer" character. Taste turned out to be rather yeasty, surprising for a beer that I would presume to have been pasteurized and carbonated… or is it? Still, some fine dark roasty malts and a contrasting German hop profile make this a solid example of the style.
