Maibock / Helles Bock |  6.50% ABV

Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
Bock (January – March) is the first of our seasonal brews. It is brewed with Perle hops and pale and caramel malts. Our Bock is similar to a German Maibock in its high malt content, full body and slightly higher alcohol content. Abita Bock is a very popular brew, especially during our Mardi Gras season.

The nose is a little more "winey" that 6.5% alcohol would suggest, also spicy hops, malt spice.
Pours copper amber under a massive 3"+ slightly off-white persistent foam cap that produces thick ledges of lace.
The palate starts rich and malty balanced by a spicy-earthy hop accent on the finish.
Medium to just above on the body, medium carbonation, creamy and smooth.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, golden, copper/amber color with a finger and a half of white-colored head that dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Malty up front, imparting notes of freshly baked sourdough bread and Club® Crackers. There are also strong notes of caramel and black pepper.

Taste: Exactly like the aroma. Malty up front, imparting notes of cereal, crackers, toasted bread, followed by caramel-like sweetness, and finished with a touch of hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and very smooth, as there is no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 6.5%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: Another good beer from Abita. Good flavors of malt and caramel-like sweetness, wrapped up in a smooth, creamy quaff. I’d certainly get it again.
