  • Pours with minimal chill haze and clear, white foam. Retention is fleeting. Lacing is typical of a lager: falls back to liquid.

    Aroma of bread and cracker malt. Fruit and floral.

    Taste is bread malt that build to a lingering sweetness. Fruit, maybe bubblegum. Almost syrup like at times.

    Medium body and light carbonation. Dry. Not bitter. No hints of alcohol.

    I don't drink many maibocks, therefore I don't know much about the style. A bit to sweet for me, even if it is to style, making it tough to have more than one at a time. Otherwise a nice beer. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • Abita Andygator®, a creature of the swamp, is a unique, high-gravity brew made with pilsner malt, German lager yeast, and German Perle hops. Unlike other high-gravity brews, Andygator® is fermented to a dry finish with a slightly sweet flavor and subtle fruit aroma. Reaching an alcohol strength of 8% by volume, it is a Helles Doppelbock.

    You might find it goes well with fried foods. It pairs well with just about anything made with crawfish. Some like it with a robust sandwich. Andygator® is also a good aperitif and easily pairs with Gorgonzola and creamy blue cheeses. Because of the high alcohol content, be cautious — sip it for the most enjoyment.
