3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle pours a hazy light golden body with a tall white head. Good retention and plenty of patchy lacing. Aroma of sweet pils malts, spicy noble hops, grassiness, and lemon rind. Creamy and smooth medium body is crisply carbonated. Taste is predominately bitter hops, grassy and spicy, with hints of pine and citrusy grapefruit. Seems like some Cascades found their way into this one. Plisner malts offer a solid base but provide just a whisper of sweetness. Finishes clean, with a lasting lemon rind aftertaste. Pretty well balanced, overall, and very drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The classic Pilsner pale golden body was highly effervescent, and the head was a good four finger thick. The smell was very hoppy, with some clove, hay, and faint hint of smoke. The taste was departure from a Pilsner, due to the high hop content, which showed up as a mix of bitter and spicy flavors. There was a lemon twist taste in the finish, and some alcohol warmth after each sip. Not exactly a quenching beer, but the complex profile, and creamy mouthfeel made me want to keep drinking. Hard to tell this was a lager, until you knew beforehand, and then the lack of residual sugars was a bit more apparent.

Bottle. Slightly hazy pour, fizzy white head. Bready malt, sweetness, a bit of fruit, and grassy slightly metallic hops. I am not a big fan.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a very thin, fast-dying white head. Aroma of hops, grapefruit, coriander seed and a touch of dry malts. Lightish-bodied; Assertive hops and a little alcohol noticeable with some dry grain, a barnyardie biere de garde vibe and a touch of curacao or something citrus and fragrant. Aftertaste shows mostly hop and bittering characteristics, but a little light spice and drying flavours come in at the end. Overall, an okay beer - nothing too special, but nothing horribly bad either. Ridiculously expensive, especially at the brewpub, and for this matter - doesn’t really need to be sampled unless someone else is picking up the tab. I sampled this pint poured in a snifter at the DogFishHead Brewpub in Chantilly, Virginia on 27-March-2011.

Rating from 7/17/2010 9:21:12 AM. Bottled as "My Antonia" from Dogfish Head. Poured a clear golden color with a thick, foamy white head. Aroma is touch of sweet/bitter light fruits, touch of spice. Flavor was a mild malt one, with touches of hops. Not a bad one.

Soft golden color with a great puffy head. Smells like it tastes. Very dry pepper spiced and yet sweet and sour. Very crisp and odd like farmhouse ale. And oh yes some hop also.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at Maple Tree Inn. Pours a slightly hazed deep gold with a sticky white head that dissipates, likely due to the alcohol. Nose is soft and spicy noble hops and sweet pils mingling with some sweet alcohol. On taste, this one reinforces my dislike of this style. Too much sweetness and esters for a pilsner. It just feels and acts wrong on the palate. Pilsner is misleading in the name as this shares little with that style. Meh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a golden color. Modest head that stuck to glass. Aroma was lite hops flavor, grassy and grainy. Taste was med-lite bitter. Smooth drinkin, kind of grassy flavor. Refreshing. Lite bodied, Biiter finish. Hops kick in at the end. Slick texture. Decent stuff. Good pilsner with a nice ABV.
