Hmmm... I donít know what to thiunk about this one. I was expecting something darker. This brew, however, poured a really pale color...perhaps like a pale bock??? I donít know. Regardless not bad but not really much to write home about...especially from a micro. Golden color nice white head that dies easily. Nose of lager yeast and slight malt character. Great palate for a beer of this color. Excellently round on the tongue. Notes of water, malt, yeast and hops...hmmm thats about it. Pass it by. Grat

Bright yellow with a thin white head. Skunky, lightstruck nose. Grainy, gritty and otherwise tasteless. Nothing bock about this one. Another thumbs down for abita.

Clear amber body with fairly large off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, grainy, some alcohol, light cherry. Taste is mild up top, before turning fairly sweet, caramel, alcohol. Light astringency in the finish. Medium-full body, some acidity.

Gotta top off the evening with a bock.Nice amber color,small off white ehad that faded quickly and left little behind.The aroma was Malty with a mild fruity presence maybe some spice but hard to say it could just be a bit peppery.Mild hops and little more.Malty taste with a slight hint of alcohol and fruit and the hops managed to get away without much of a showing.The spicy side did show but only mildly.Not bad but definatley could use some more work.

This bottled marked best before 6/17 did not state what year it was bottled int? This brew poured a large sized head of fine to large sized off-white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a poor lacing. The body was a carbonated transparent orange brown color. The aroma was malty and not bock like. The mouth feel had a medium tingle that smoothened in the finish. Its sweet and malty flavor went down easily.

Bottle. Poured a small white creamy and smooth head with fine sized bubbles that quickly dissipated. Fast-rising carbonation, transparent and a gold hue. The aroma was malty, sweet, and clove. The flavor was sweet, malty and very watery. The mouthfeel was smooth, watery and thin. This was a light bodied beer with sparse lacing. Nothing outstanding here.

Sweet with a fairly big head. Thought the finish was dry and the brew while acceptable not outstanding

Strange, Iím picking up some banana and clove in this beer. Otherwise the malt is sweet but poorly developed- almost adjuncty IMO. Clear golden body with a minimal off-white head. Oh, what of the aroma? Well, itís corny sweet. This "bock" is basically an amped-up American standard or "pale lager." Leaves a grassy, rather bitter aftertaste. I like Turbodog much better.

Might be my favorite of their line, which really isnít saying much. I have great reservations as Iíve had good and bad samples. A beer can be infectious or infected. Beware of he latter.
