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.

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.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, best before 5/11/2013. Pours fairly crystal clear pale orange copper color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of caramel, apple, pear, grape, biscuit, toast, brown sugar, floral, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and fruity ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, cracker, apple, pear, floral, grass, bread, toast, light pepper, light nuttiness, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, light fruits, floral, grass, bread, toast, and earthiness on the finish for a bit. Good balance of malt, hop, and ester flavors; with no cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a slightly creamy, smooth, and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is good. Overall this is a very solid maibock. Good balance of all flavors; and very smooth to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

Golden lager-ish appearance with a nice foamy white lastying head and some lacing. Sweet malty aroma. Taste is nicely sweet. Basically the flavour of a lager but intensified. Enjoyable.

Golden Bock, medium bitterness, sweet aroma. A lighter Bock, that still packs a bite. Could easy be confused for a Mai-bock.

Tap at WOB. Dark gold pour. Malty, toasty bread aroma. Big body malt with a light hop touch and more bread notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a good bock. Nothing to special but it tastes like a bock. I enjoy it and would drink it again.
