Abita Mardi Gras Bock

By on March 22, 2007 @ 2 PM (No Comments)

Pours light amber with a beige head and caramel aroma without the distinctive yeasty bread aroma that comes with the wheat in a bock. Head didn’t last very long. Fair depth to the malts with a definite caramel taste. Fairly hoppy aftertaste and a definite sweetness, a medium heavy finish. The sweetness helps mellow out the hops while drinking but doesn’t help the long lasting finish. Not too bad but I find Shiner or Amber Bock much better.

Wish I hadn’t bought a 6 pack. It’s not bad enough to pour out though. Being extremely thrifty (cheap) I tried making a black and tan out of it. Couldn’t use a sweet stout as that would be way too sweet so I selected a Beamish and it worked out pretty well. Abita makes some good beers but this isn’t one of them.
