Kinda nasty thick cloying beer without much carbonation. Could be worse though.

Bottle - good size foamy head, clear medium copper color, sweet light malty aroma and flavor, mild earthy hops - not bad overall but nothing that really stands out from it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at The Craft Bar in Destin, FL . Had very little head that dissipated within seconds, and resembled the amber mosquito stone from Jurassic Park (hopefully that reference is not lost). S: No overwhelming flavors reached my nose, I literally stuck the tip of my nose so far in the glass that I almost drowned; and yet I smelt nothing. T: Malty and sweet but it had a smoky bitter taste near the end- almost gritty. The overall lack of flavor reminded me much of a Budweiser but I was a little buzzed by the time I got to this beer.

12 oz bottle of Mardi Gras Bock from Wegmans, West Seneca, NY. Golden amber with a tight cream head; caramel malt aroma; sweet caramel taste with a malty body, and a touch of spicy bitterness; before an earthy caramel finish.

Biscuity malty aroma with spicy hop character Pours a clear amber with big foamy off white head Biscuity toasty malt with sweet raisin like quality, balanced with spicy hops Medium bodied, medium high co2, sweet and slightly spicy finish Enjoyable brew! Reminds me of a Marzen just a bit sweeter. I could drink these all day ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TomTron (409) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Pours a clear copper with a soapy head. Some faint malts in the nose and some yeast. Malty presence as expected in the flavors and definitely a smooth easy drinker. Nothing complex but it isn’t usually expected of the style. Solid.

BOSSbrewer (2092) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Bottle at home under the alias label "Mardi Gras Bock." Pours a clear golden Amber with one finger of off white head. Flavor is toffee, some caramel and slight bitterness. Very smooth. Slightly sweet. Very nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured into a tulip glass. Light haze, coppery gold color. Thin head and light lacing. Aroma: cereal, caramel. Taste: medium sweetness, a little sour. Not too heavy for a bock, I enjoyed it and would buy again.

Lubiere (10560) - 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.
