Pours a light amber color, very pale ale like. Huge head develops from a standard pour, filling almost half of the standard pint glass with white foam. Dissipation is quite a bit quicker than I would like to see, dropping to less than 1/2" within a minute. Scattered lace remains.
Smell is not that easy to get a handle on. Notes of malt, grain, light fruit, hops, a distinct mustiness riding over all, though not off-putting.
Taste is like a good lager, a decently balanced mix of malt and hops, some more light fruits (apple & pear), some grain, and thankfully, less of the mustiness.
Fuller bodied than I expected, pushing above medium. Effervescence is restrained. Some warming from the alcohol crops up some several seconds after the swallow. A cloying film also develops, sadly, on the palate and, to a lesser extent, the tongue. All told, a decent brew but just that.

Trying the abita abductors at the Pie Factory in Florance, AL. The beer poured a clear golden with white head that left a lace. The scent was faint with hints of grass and biscuit. The taste was very strong leaning toward grassy peat bread. The m outhfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall the beer didn't hit the mark for me.

Have wanted to try this, spotted some locally and jumped at the chance. Best by 8/2014 clear on the bottle's neck.
A -- Clear, deep gold with a large, dense, long-lasting, egg shell colored head that leaves nice lacing -- a very pretty beer and solid to style.
S -- Sweet malts and spicy alcohol.
T -- Rich, sweet maltiness with some peppery alcohol bite, but not overwhelming. Light toasty breadiness and mild fruitiness from rich malts. Vaguest hop bitterness in the finish.
M -- Mouthfeel is soft to dry with a medium-full body.
O -- A surprisingly nice take on the style. Goes to show that breweries can surprise you out of the blue. Anyone who likes German-style beers should try this one.
