Abita mardi gras bock on tap at the AWBF (Jan. 2014)
Bone-colored head quickly reduces to a durable ring.
Aroma: malty aroma with a hint of spicy hops and a bit if alcohol esters. Also a trace of dark fruits.
T: follows aroma, including the hint of dark fruits. Large load of caramel malts for style - but enjoying this.
Feel: medium body with medium-high carbonation.
O: respectfully good for style. ABV not hidden.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark golden color with fair head and spotty lacing. Aroma of grain, caramel with some fruit and citrus in the background. Taste of caramel with a mix of fruit and grain. Decent bitterness that lingers a bit. Moderate body, mild crispness and smooth throughout. Nothing special but still an enjoyable bock.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
