Imperial Pilser" realizzata con Sam Calagione del birrificio Dogfish Head (USA). Pils, Carapils, Simcoe, Warior, Saaz <nt>
Una delle poche incursioni nel mondo della bassa fermentazione made in Borgorose, è il frutto della collaborazione tra Leonardo e Sam Calagione di Dogfishead. Ognuno dei due birrai ha messo del proprio in questa birra, scegliendo a turno il tipo di luppolo da aggiungere pugno a pugno in un dry hopping lungo 60 minuti, tra Simcoe, Warrior e Saaz. Più alcolica e corposa rispetto alle classiche Pils, sorprende per la sua intensità rivelandosi esplosiva ma equilibrata. Una bionda “tosta” di cui vi innamorerete, proprio come la protagonista del romanzo di WillaCather da cui prende il nome.

jackl (6782) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Bottle @ Bruce’s birthday tasting. Cheers to Leighton(or Colin?) for the pour. The appearance is light gold with a medium white head. The aroma’s light husky grain, bread, some lemon rind and juicy melon fruit gums. The taste is golden syrup, slightly toasted malt. A bit of light white grape punch. Soft fruit sweetness. Active carbonation, pretty crisp and easy to drink. Overall, not bad.

jcos (1779) - Maryland, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Location/Date:Bottle on February 20th, 2013.

Appearance: Pours a clear orange.
Aroma: Aroma of hop, faint spice, faint bready malt.
Taste: Medium bitterness, some orange, bready malt.
Palate:Medium light body, delicate light fizz.

Summary: My first Italy tick! A hoppy imperial pils is a really rare find. This is my second rating of My Antonia, as I’ve had the DFH one numerous times but not for awhile. A really nice beer, with a pretty solid hop profile yet the characterstics of pilsners in terms of the malt and lightness.

Countbeer (5959) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle: Medium sized, airy and bit fluffy white head changes with regular speed into a unequal spread hilly islad lacings on top of a beautiful equally hazy layered darker yellow fluor orange colored beer. Smell nice hoppy bouquet: hop, flowers, lemon, citrus, soap, hint of nettle, herbs, sweat and swimming pool. Flavours are a nice mix of hops, bitter, citrus, flowers, flowers, some malts, creamy, floral bitter and creamy herby. Aftertaste is bitter, hops, malts, light spicy hint of flowers and herbs. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium to fuller body and a creamy texture. Quite a nice beer, hoppy and tasty!

msante79 (2224) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy golden orange with frothy white head. Aromas of grassy and floral hops, citrus, sweet malts, and some spices. Flavors of light spices mixed in with a little sweat malts, nice amount of grassy and floral hops, bit of a caramel and fruit. Finishes dry and with some hop bitterness. Kind of a hybrid between a IPA and pilsner. Pretty solid.

Gutifa (135) - Eisenharz, GERMANY - JAN 14, 2013
Yellow/orange color with a good white head. Floral hoppy aroma with a good base of malts. More body than in a normal pils. Good drinkability and perfect combination between the malts and floral hops. Impossible to guess the more than 7% of alcohol. Dry finish.
