2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
One of the 12-oz bottles sampled from the Abita Party Pack, acquired from Cellarís 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.

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.

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

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
New Beer Distributors, NY 355ml ($2): Pours a clear orange with a quickly dissipating head that leaves lacing. Aroma is candy and mild fruitiness. Taste is not that heavy. There just really ainít enough of this. It sort of tastes like Jolly Ranchers light (without as much crappy artificial taste). Slightly sweet. Very uninteresting.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear golden amber pour. Typical lager aroma and almost smells like an Oktoberfest. Minimal malt taste - leaves something more to be desired. A good session beer, but not much more.

Draft. Light malty aroma. Amber pour with thin white head. Tastes malty but very plain. Not a very interesting beer.

On tap at Stubbyís as Mardi Gras Bock. Clear amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma is faint with toasted pale malt and a touch of grains. Taste is pale and noble with light semi-floral hops and middle-of-the-road sweetness. Kinda boring which is par for the course for Abita.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a caramel-amber color with a huge fluffy orange-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was sweet table sugar and a faint vegetal presence. The flavor was tangy table sugar that fell into dryness with faint vague candied fruits underneath. Medium length tangy table sugar finish. Moderately full bodied. Ok.
