Abita Mardi Gras Bock

Abita Brewing Co, Abita Springs, LA

Abita Mardi Gras Bock is brewed with pale, pilsner and caramel malts and German Perle hops.  Our bock is similar to German maibocks with its rich malt flavor and full body.  Mardi Gras Bock brings the fun of Carnival Season to you wherever you are.

6.5% ABV

Clear amber in color with a nose that reminds us of an ESB: apple juice, but not as sweet as an ESB.  Very light and neither fruity nor bitter.  Tastes like a baby ESB without the bitterness.  A bit of grip at the tail end, but not a lot.  Pretty typical of Abita: not bad, not great…  Just middle of the road.  Also, at 6.5%, this would not be our choice for a Mardi Gras beer.  We look for “session” beers that we can drink for hours without falling down drunk into the parade route.

Would we have it again?  Nah…
