On tap at a restaurant in Savannah. Server described it as a "german lager" so I was expecting something along the lines of a pilsner. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this very interesting sweet and complex helles. Pours clear pale. Sweet floral aroma. Good very balanced sweet and crisp flavor.

12 oz bottle pours a clear golden/amber with small off-white head and hardly any lacing. Aroma is not strong, but mostly grainy and bready malts, with a touch of molasses. Taste is sweet and occasionally sickeningly sweet. Body is medium with slight carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. The name and the label are the best part of this beer. I found it in a New Orleans restaurant and won’t look for it again.

pours a clear rich gold with a medium creamy white head. Light malt aroma. Kind of a different, sweetish taste. A little bitter comes in on the finish and linger. Different, not a bock, but not bad.

12 fl.oz. bottle from BierPost. A clear golden beer with a huge good lasting off-white head. Strong pale malty aroma, hints of grainy malt, sweet malt. Taste of strong malt, pale malt, mild sweetness, sharp grainy, a bit dry.

bottled - clear golden color. Not much aroma or flavor at the start. Gets slightly sweet as it warms a bit. Just ok.

(Keg at Pikkulintu, 20170429) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, caramel and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, fruitiness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A sweet brew but nothing to do with any bock.

You’re got to give to Abita for embracing their Florida roots. About every other Bock-type beer in the world has a goat on it. Abita is going to put an alligator on it, goddamnit! Andygator generally looks and smells like your average Doppelbock, although it’s not as dark as most. Pale orange color. Mildly hoppy aroma and sweet grains. I never really took to the flavor. There’s some mildly fruity notes and a strange vanilla/honey sweetness that seems somewhat out-of-place. I didn’t take to this, but it’s worth trying if you like Abita.

35,5 cl - bbd = july 2015 Ideal thirst quencher. Fruity aroma, full, complex body.

VastActiv (7122) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 10, 2017
Tap at Flying Saucer Emporium, Memphis. Colour is clear light orange with small white . Aromas and flavors: Grain, some sweetness and malts. Simple and nothing special.
