Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 03-17-2002

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.

An easy drinking beer - it has a slight hint of hops on the nose and in the taste. Bread and malt dominate the taste. One of those rare smooth, tasty, easy to drink beers. Not very complex or hoppy though.

02/21/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Nice beer. I know that can sound offensive but sometimes all you want is something amiable. This is that kind of beer. Polite flavors. I think the Mardi Gras labeling is a misnomer as it's not so much a 'party' beer as a beer of the season. Very drinkable. The personification of a "session" beer.
