COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This here beer is a lagerific departure for our ale-centric brewery. A marriage of old world tradition and new world innovation, My Antonia is brewed with pilsner malt and continually-hopped with a blend of Noble and West Coast hops.

750mL bottle. Bottled 2011. Clear yellow, thick bodied, creamy white head. Aroma of pils malts and floral / citrus hops. Scents of biscuit, bread, malt, and loads of citrus hops. Nicely dry-hopped. Tastes of biscuit, pils malt, and nice citrus hops. Loads of malt dominate this brew. So tasty.

Pours a nice yellow with constant streamers of bubbles. Nose is floral and citrusy, blended with sweet pils malts. Taste is full of cereal sweet malt character with plenty of floral hops finishing out with nice crisp bitterness. clean, flavorful and yet delicate.

A hyped-up (hoppy) pilsener. Very nice refreshing drink. Think: light Imperial IPA.

Ernest (6573) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin/pine), with notes of lemon zest, cotton candy, alcohol. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. A nicely balanced beer for the style, but it’s a shame the hop aroma is so raw/green.

EithCubes (5204) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Fresh, big bottle (with a low fill line, I must say). Nice soft malt in the nose, light grass and explosive citrus, lemon and maybe a touch of mint. Mineral water, bright and sparkly. Light golden body toward yellow, good carbonation and a pretty, rocky white head. Taste is bitter with some pungent alcohol fumes, a little chalk and stronger grass and resin, the aromatic citrus is all but gone. Hops are interesting here, definitely has traditional, bready noble hops, but there’s New World pizazz, as well. Soft medium-full body. Refreshing and actually comes close to hitting the predominant realization of the German pils (which is both a good and bad thing). Surprisingly good.

Naka (714) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Pours golden color with frothy white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is sweet hops. Um... hoppy, pilsy, and sweet. Really sweet. There is a nice papery bitterness. Very good.

JStax (3532) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2011
Poured from a bottle into an ale glass. Appearance is a mildly hazy gold with a huge fluffy white head that leaves sticky lacing all down the glass. Aroma reminds me a lot of an IPA in its hop profile. Taste is very hoppy up front, fading to a less flavorful pilsner. Super smooth body with a slightly hop finish with a touch of bread.

joebudzjoe (667) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 18, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2011 Draft @ Delaney’s in New Haven. Pours the color of apple juice with a slight, fizzy white head. A sweet aroma with a classic pils crisp hop attack and malt body. Notes of lemon, black pepper, pear and honey. A pleasure to drink, and even quite a session brew. Another solid Dogfish.

dpento1 (236) - Virginia, USA - MAR 16, 2011
Pours a mildly hazy, yellow-gold, with a nice sized, creamy head. Aroma of floral hops, grassy, malts, and some lemons! Very nice aroma! Flavor is moderately sweet with lemons, citrusy notes, and all around hoppy. There is also an oily residue in the finish that just coats your mouth with hops? I like it!

Tmoney99 (11678) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2011
Bottle. Poured a dark clear amber color with an average to large frothy white head that was mostly lasting and produced excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy hops, malt and alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid brew and very good for style.
