Mardi Gras Bock

It’s taken me a couple of years to get around to trying this, but here goes. 12 oz single from Total Wine, Barrett Parkway, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Good clarity on the pour which for me, is a fundamental aspect of the style, however the head retention and lace are disappointing.
Nose and tastes have that typical fruity, dry and mild bitterness in there, but it’s no more than the style demands. Finishes with a touch of coppery, metallic bitterness which I enjoy.
In summary, Abita is a pretty average brewery and this is just another beer that reflects that fact. OK, but ultimately forgettable.
