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.

One of the 12-oz bottles sampled from the Abita Party Pack, acquired from Cellar’s Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN. Pours a clear light amber brew with a thin and fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates to a fine white ring and no lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt and some grassy hops. Taste is light to medium bodied, well-carbonated with some caramel malt and citrus zest. Finish is watery, with a semi-sweet caramel malt aftertaste. One of the lightest bock beers I have tried.

JaBier (5739) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle purchased as part of a mixed sixer at Kroger Stoneridge. Clear amber pour with a thick beige head. Aroma of malt, sweetness, caramel, lager yeast and light noble hop. Malty flavor with sweet caramel, light fruit and light hop before a sweet finish.

Disappointed. No aroma and a light color with a watery palate. Malty flavor of old bread with a slight hops presence.

Drinking the Abita Christmas Bock. Too hoppy and bitter for my taste. It was a gift so I’m not out money for trying it. Have the remaining bottles to use as marinade for brats.

arkurzynski (1857) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - APR 14, 2015
Copper pour. Nose of candied caramel and light fruit. Light minerals and some diacetyl. Flavor is lager/light adjunct malt with a touch of fruit and caramel. Light bitterness. Not great, but certainly better than a good number of the ratings.

bottle as Mardi Gras Bock - Pours dark gold with a one finger off-white head. It has a light, caramel malt aroma. It tastes of sweet malt with a little caramel and hops bitterness that while still fairly mild, is more bitter than usual for a bock. Overall it’s drinkable but struggles to reach average quality.

Move along, nothing much to see here. Nice label. Pretty average nondeScript beer.

Slight orange hue, thick foamy light creme head. Nose is malt. Bittersweet. Middle is toffee & caramelized malt,like liquid bread. Finish has a little hop kick, but stays mostly sweet.

Haven’t tried anything from Abita after the past bad examples. Would have passed this one by if it wasn’t for finding it at a decent price in the singles section. OK one bottle won’t kill me I guess. Poured up a clear amber with no head. Smells of caramel and rust. Was expecting the signature dirt back taste that previous Abita brews had but luckily and surprisingly this one did not have that. It is actually not too bad to drink. Not sure if the brewery got a new filter to clean up that swamp water or what but this one is actually good.

Bottle. Lactic caramel malt and alcohol aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet caramel malt and moderately bitter/astringent herbal alcohol flavor. At least it tries to be a bock (unlike Shiner Bock).
