From notes on 04/12/12:
Best by: 02/28/2013; Poured in a pint glass.
A - Over an inch of slight off-white, fluffy head with good retention; Crystal clear appearance with a golden color; Decent rings of lacing left behind
S - Pretty yeasty/bready smell with lightly toasted grains, cereal, light herbal hops, and a bit of sweetness; Extremely subtle hint of booze
T - Herbal and spicy hops have a decent presence - more than the aroma; Again, very faint booze presence that you really have to look for to find, though it strengthens as the beer warms to room temperature; Good bit of sweet bread, grain, and cereal flavors that linger in the aftertaste; Just a bit of hop bitterness steps up to counter the sweetness
M - Leaves the mouth a bit dry and sticky; Good bit of prickly carbonation; Lighter than medium bodied with a crisp and fairly smooth mouthfeel; Finish is slightly warming
O - This lager isn't one to bring lots of complexity or stand out from the pack, but with it's crisp, lighter body, it's certainly an easy beer to drink. The mouthfeel was the strongest point of the beer for me, and while a little light for the style, it still seemed to work pretty well. Overall, there are plenty of nice Maibocks out there to choose from, but this offering is a solid choice when in the mood for a lighter, crisper option.

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.
