Beer Review, Abita Bock

Abita Bock
Abita Springs, LA
Unknown ABV

Appearance: Light brownish-orange body, very thick off-white head that dissipates quickly. Very transparent, with some effervescence from the bottom of the glass. 4.0/5

Smell: Sweet, very malty, slightly bready. Slight hints of cherries. Overall just a dry maltiness, not bad for style. 4.0/5

Taste: Very... bock-like. Malty and sweet up-front, with a dry finish and aftertaste. Slightly nutty. Decent, but not a lot of complexity. 3.0/5

Mouthfeel: Fairly thin, low carbonation, no real hops. 2.5/5

Drinkability: A nice beer for relaxing, but nothing that sets the world on fire. 3.0/5

Overall: 3.35/5
