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.

At least it’s better than Shiner’s offering... slightly weak malt masks a weak caramel sort of flavor. Interesting, but only as interesting as Pauly Shore was.

Crash (531) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Let’s start with the fact that this wasn’t a bock. Didn’t smell, look, or taste like one so I don’t know what they were thinking. Poured golden with next to no head. Aroma was one of those strange things you don’t want to smell before drinking. Tasted a lot like a almost pale ale.

JMerritt (1828) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2005
Sampled at Peoria Int’l Beer Festival. Ah, so this a maibock. I tought for a second the rep was pouring me the wrong beer. Pale gold with a small head. Straw aroma - and that’s about it. Fruity esters in the flavor initially, with lots of grains (wheat), hay, and some ginger. WAY too carbonated, nearly burningly so. Ick.

Medium copper color. Medium lasting white head. Faint aroma. Fairly light tasting. It was OK, but most other Abita’s are better.

PorterPounder (5656) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2005
12 oz bottle - Central Market - Austin, Tx. Pours a dark orange with little to no head - what is there is snow white. Aroma is pretty much non-dememo - pick up some fresh lake water accents, a faint whisp of caramel. Flavor has some of those same malty caramel notes with a bit of cotton candy sweetness. Mouthfeel is thick and slightly syrupy - highlight of this one. A very decent bock- especially from the south. Enjoyed

Aurelius (4322) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2005
On tap. Oaky dark gold, clingy head. Light, pruney-floral aroma. Well-hopped with traditional lager hops, biscuity, not sweet, ABV noticable. Finishes with a long grainy bitterness and moderate astringency. Medium body, finish goes yeasty. A good beer with food, especially on a nippy winter day in Dixie. Spectacular with the gyros at the brewpub.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2005
I’ve traded this beer away about six times and never got around to trying it...pour golden with a thin khaki head...smell is sweet with lemons and a little grainy...taste is sweet with a strange wheat thing going on toward the finish...a little bitter toward the finish...not great at all...

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2005 dark amber in color with a fruity - carmel aroma to it. the taste is the same with a good malty finish....best of the abita batch

Thanks to Walt for this one. Bright yellow with a white head. Had a lemony pinesol aroma. Some hints to citrus flavor try to escape into my mouth, but do not do a good job. Decent malt character. The finish has the most flavor of the whole thing. Pretty light beer.

Nuffield (3713) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2004
Yellow body, lots of billowing head. Sweet corn and lemon aroma, hints of bubblegum. Some nice flavor hints, leaning toward a hefeweizen (?!), some faint spicy notes even. LIghtly fruity finish. Yet, all told, mild in flavor. Moderately frothy palate. Sessionable, drinkable, even vaguely likable, but they call this a bock? Oh well.
