COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Aroma is caramel, hay and grassy hops. Taste is biscuit, caramel, grassy hops, spices and a little roasted. It is mild but becomes more complex as you drink it. Palate is slightly thick. Not too bad, just lacking strength of flavor, but bottle is 3 days past best by date.

Lubiere (9877) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
A lightly hazed golden bock with a thick frothy off white head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with light fruity notes, grassy hops, OK. In mouth, grainy cereal malt with light grassy hops, roasted character, not bad.

Draft at the source. Crystal clear golden yellow color, white edge head. Aroma of biscuit and straw. Taste is similar. Light to medium body.

12 oz. bottle at home from backlog notes. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted biscuity malts, mild sweetness, some moderate fruity character, mild butterscotch, just very average in everything. Moving on.

mjg74 (2491) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottled from Costplus. Light amber in color. Sweet nose. Some malts and grains with a bit of an off scent. Fairly dry and a little sweet. Not as sweet as it smells though. Lightly hopped. Drinkable, but nothing special.

AnokaBrewer (20) - Anoka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 15, 2014
This is the Mardi Gras Bock Seasonal. I get no aroma from this beer. Appearance is a dark golden amber, perhaps a little light for the style. Just the right amount of carbonation. Sweeter taste with a caramel malt finish. The finish was not there when it was cold, but as it started to warm, the finish became more pronounced.

MaltOne (213) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Pours pale amber with ample, frothy white head. Aroma is bananas and yeast - banana bread? Flavor is same with grassy notes - definitely on the sweet side. Hops - what hops? No evidence. There are no off notes; a pleasant, drinkable, SWEET beer. Maybe its a southern thing.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2014
12 oz. bottle (labeled Mardi Gras Bock) best by 5/26/14 poured into dimpled mug. Sparkling medium caramel color with a thin foamy off-white head that melts away into a slick after a few minutes. Malty, earthy, slightly sour aroma. Light caramel malt flavor. Oddly this doesn’t have any distinct aftertaste. It just kind of... stops. This comes off as rather thin and watery. Unimpressive overall.

Nice looking beer. Bitter and hoppy flavor. Too bitter for my liking. Nice colored beer

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - APR 16, 2014
Pours a golden amber with a large white head, mostly lasting. Aroma is malty. Nice and creamy on the palate. Malt profile is forward on first tasting with a hint of caramel. Lightly hopped with no bitterness. A decent bock but not top tier. Pairs well with burgers and brats off the grill.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2014 Feel kinda strange having this during Lent. Labeled "Mardi Gras Bock" Aroma: Definitely bready, like it’s German counterparts, but not purely so; a little more grain and pronounced caramel adulterates things a bit. There’s something here that reminds me of peanut butter. Sweet, no doubt, but with a spicy hop presence that isn’t negligible. Appearance: Poured a well carbonated copper with a foamy khaki head that settles into a sticky film. Flavor: Bready up front, and more bready overall than the nose suggests (and a little less sweet); spicy hops do emerge about halfway through; hops pull through to the finish, which is semi-dry. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: A bit of a poor man’s take on the style (well, kinda like Bavaria meets Gumbo country), but it comes together respectably. Wouldn’t turn it down if offered again.
