Abita Mardi Gras Bock

Abita Brewing Co

USA

Very, very nice indeed. Where Andygator falls flat on its face, the Mardi Gras shines. Handsome smoky amber color, pleasant malty nose, and the flavor's a tasty blend of malt and hops. Not slam-you-over-the-head delicious, but awful darn good. Someone was actually paying attention at Abita when they brewed this little number. This beer made me vaguely sad it's seasonal. I hope they don't mess with the recipe for next year's offering; this was spot-on.
