Now this beer I am very familiar with. It's one of my top 20 favorite beers and I buy a 6-pack of it regularly.
Once again, you and I are in tune, CG. I am actually amazed you can find it... I'll be.
You guys may enjoy looking around the BJCP (Beer Judge Certification Program) website. You can find the style beer you are drinking and see what it should taste like. You can also download a score sheet and score your beers. http://www.bjcp.org/index.php
Thank you most kindly for sharing that link with us, Wolfpack. Most interesting. Must give this some thought.
This is my favorite period. I can't actually remember when I first had an Andy Gator but ever since then I have been hooked. It is brewed by Abita Brewery in Abita Springs, LA.
Hey I'm not beer expert so I will let their website tell you about it.
Abita Andygator®, a creature of the swamp, is a unique, high-gravity brew made with pale 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.
Suggested temperature: 42°
Suggested glassware: pint, goblet, stein, flute or snifter

Oh my, I guess that's a real tail kicker, yes KJ? At 8%, and they do forewarn ya. I'm going to look for that.
