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.

shadey (1931) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 17, 2004
Clear orange pour with a soapy head that starts off big, but settles down to a thin layer. Sweet aroma. A little bit of the hay mentioned by some other raters. I was expecting something with a bit more full bodied. This was a bit watery. It doesnít taste bad, but its not good either. This would be a good replacement for those who just want a bunch of beers they can slam back. Not filling at all, light bodied and refreshing.

Tejas (892) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2004
Aroma is almost non-existent. Pours a lightish cloudy caramel color. Can definitely taste the hops and some fruit that I canít put my finger on. Whatever it is, I donít care for it. Glad this was a freebie. Iíve drank half; donít think I can get the other half down.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, USA - AUG 30, 2004
Pours a foamy off-white head on a clear golden body. Quite sharp and somewhat harsh in the hayish and flowery aroma. Thin fruity and strawish flavor, notes of citrus and hops. Very uninteresting.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUL 15, 2004
Bottle. Hmm, how did I miss this one this whole time? Extremely light for a bock, I was thinking exactly the same thing that the most recent rater thought: that it looks more like a pilsener. The taste is decidedly non-bockish, but as it stands, it would be a decent sports watching beer and Iíll rate it as such. A little effervescent and otherwise, itís pretty much an amber ale with some chocolate thrown in.

jaymobrown (1699) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2004
Dull sugar nose. Clear yellow pilsner looking. Lemon flavors with a dry, straw finish. A bock? No, no, no. Complete failure.

DocLock (8103) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2012 Pours dark straw, with medium head. Aroma of malt, toffee, hops, and floral/fruitiness. Tastes firm, but slightly light on mouthfeel, with a malty, fruity, slightly hoppy finish.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 2, 2004
Quite pale, a light, clear copper-gold. Nose a bit off, some malts, but something unpleasant lurks. Flavor is somewhat bland, a bit sweet with some caramel. Kind of boring.

grat (433) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 28, 2004
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

JoeM500 (1906) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUN 27, 2004
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.
