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 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.
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2017 Hazy amber with small white head
Nose is tons of caramel with bready malt and some fruit
taste is balanced sweet and bitter. More caramel. Very dry finish with lingering fruity/hoppiness.
Medium mouthfeel without much carbonation.
Overall, a fruity tasty Bock!

Pours a mostly clear orangish coppery color with off-white head. Caramel malt, cereal grain, bread, and some light sweet notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with a nice malt bill. gripweed57 (2978) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAR 2, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Amber orange color capped by a moderate sized foamy white head. Malty nose has hints of buttery caramel and toasted grain. First sip is toasted malt and nuts. Sweet malty middle, like 12 grain bread and honey. Subtle spicy hop finish. Nejhleader (1574) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2017

Buttery and weak, with a mildew nose and noticeably slack carbonation. Tastes mildly sweet, with a corn and caramel undertone rubbing up against toast and nothing, leading to a modest Brit-hop fade. Not good. DocJitsu (2060) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2017
Pours a copper golden with a creamy, antique white head. Bubble gum and sweet citrus nose. Hearty mouthfeel. Flavors follow the nose faithfully. Decent all around beer, especially for long Mardi Gras parades. rollinsr (832) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - FEB 3, 2017
Pours clear amber with minimal head. Aroma is yeast esters with hints of malt sweetness. Flavor carries some sweetness to it with notes of apple.
