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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Crystal clear amber body with a thick, creamy white head; excellent lacing and rings cling to the glass. A very strong, very prominent smell of warm bread crust is present; straw and dry grass. Warm cereal flavor; cracker and biscuit; nice hop bitterness. Medium body; crisp; dry finish.

The aroma really is unique with this beer and adds to its odd-ball appeal. Distinctive with an easy drinking character.
