It pours from the bottle with a cloudy, muted, orange-yellow color and is topped by a giant, dense, foamy head. The aroma has a decent yeast presence, some dull, earthy/leafy hops, a little bit of bready sweetness, and a tiny hint of alcohol. The flavor has a nice contrast of dense, woodsy bitterness against a chewy, yeasty breadiness. The light carbonation allows a mouth-filling, resinous texture to develop. Overall, this one is a bit hefty, with a rustic and bold flavor profile that is quite satisfying.

mikeyo1 (293) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle @ home. Pours a hay-colored hazy liquid with a tall and lasting white head with quite of lot of lacing. Dry and a bit sweet aroma of pine apple, hop resins, mango, orange, candy & grass,. Toast, honey and sugar. Quite light bodied with smooth carbonation. Taste is dry and bitter with a really nice juicy pine apple character up front. Also oranges & mango, light maltiness, honey & toast. Some background grassy notes and grapefruit in mid-taste. Dry finish with some honey sweetness & grain lingering, resinous, assertive and lasting grape-bitterness.

I am not a huge pils fan but this is quite nice. The individual scores I gave are not a totally accurate picture of this beer. Very well balanced and light. Clean but not too clean finish.

tricksta_p (1422) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2015
Aroma of citrus, fruits, floral notes, mango, grassy hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a moderate to medium bitter finish. Excellent hoppy Pilsner.

Genialne !! Piękny zapach. Genialna drobna piana. Goryczka nieduża na początku, ale po chwili przychodzi wyczuwalna, długo utrzymująca się i kompletnie nie męcząca !! Polecam

Douberd (2697) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2015
(Birra del Borgo My Antonia) Bottle at home, nice looking, a miniature of the normal bottle, 330 ml. Served into a glass tankard, ABV 7.5% Very hazy body, golden orange in colour, tall and thick white head, with excellent retention, leaving heavy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, earth, grains, sweet honey-like notes. Taste of hops, grapefruit, grains, light alcohol, perfume, light yeast. Medium thin body, nicely carbonated, very dry palate. Quite good.

MarcoDL (2444) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle. Golden, white head. Nice grassy aroma of fresh hops and citra. Taste is bitter and fresh, with citra and grain. Quite a lot of carbo. Good hoppy lager, but a thicker top fermented body could benefit the beer.

Another good one from Birra del Borgo. Crisp and refreshing with some bite.

Although I really enjoyed the Dogfish brew, this one has its own merits. Malty, as is the norm for the style, without being overly grainy or sweet. Nice body without the chalky dryness of the usual Italian hard water.
