look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A-Ignoble pours a mostly clear, orange color. Finger high head of, slightly off-white foam. The head dies off a lot and settles to a thin slash of foam atop the beer. Thin strings of lace.

S-Floral, fragrant hoppiness. Smells just like a hopped-up Maibock. Perfumey hops and a sweetness that balances quite well. Some zesty citrus. Noticeable Lager yeast, that's sweetly fruity.

T-The floral, and perfumey hops are back again. Hops almost taste somewhat woody. They also taste a wee bit soapy. Sweet Maibock malt and yeast combo that reminds me of sugary biscuits.

M-Astringent. Sneakily bitter. A bit hot. Medium bodied with softer carbonation. The label describes it as 'deceitful' and I would agree; it's deceiving bigger richer than I was anticipating.

O-A fairly interesting beer. I don't mind tossing a local brewery some cash. This is a different stab at the hoppy Lager. I feel like a big less booze and a lighter body would help this beer out a bit.

Good start to the head but it dies to only large rim bubbles. There are a couple of surprising spots on the glass. The liquid is dark gold and slightly cloudy.

The smell is a combination of malted and unmated barleys. Very low level of floral hop in the background.

The taste leans far more to the hop side. I don't detect any of the expected creaminess from most pilsners. I don't pick up on the increased alcohol either. In fact, this really comes across as an IPA. Even the body mimics an ale with a round body.
