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. Gruyére, Emmental and Swiss are nice cheese choices with Bock. Great with roasted beef or pork. Try it with Mexican food too.

    Why Gunther? Why not? Like most bock beers, Gunther is a simple German style full bodied dark beer. Sweet maltiness offset by bitter hops makes for a well rounded flavor profile....

    Pours crystal clear and very light amber. Not much of a head, but it's sticking around. Smells like it's going to be a malty delight. Sweet malt and sweet citrus start off the flavor with loads of caramel and butterscotch. Hops at just a touch of bitter dryness in the finish. Kind of an earthy finish, as well.

    I have a feeling the influence from the hops would be great if this were fresher, but it's mighty tasty and highly drinkable.

    A good beer with a rich amber color and a somewhat nice thin foamy head. Not too heavy so it’s a good beer to be enjoyed readily throughout the day. Scents and tastes of caramel and malt are noted but neither of which are too heavy or overbearing of the other; but there’s a nice little bite of hops at the end that makes this a right-tasty beer!
