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.

750 ml. Pale golden body, clear. Big, pillowy white head. Grassy aroma with notes of flowers, toasted grain, citrus, lemon. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture turning velvety in the finish, lively carbonation. Crisp and clean. Noble hops are dominate in the taste. Finish is dry and peppery along with a pleasant bitterness. Slight rubbery flavor. A sweet Noble Pils with some astringency in the finish. Enjoyable.

Dogfish Head sure knows how to hop up a beer don’t they? This is no different. A nice pale yellow with a pillowy white head that laces and stays around. The aroma is malty old style beer. What I remember from my father. The flavor is malty sweet up front and nicely balanced with a lot of hops to make a very light and refreshing finish. Top shelf stuff.

Ohh... Dogfish Head.... You confuse me with gimmicky beer, ancient recipes and confusing labels. I keep coming back, hoping for the best. Luckily, My Antonia delivers. I’m a huge fan of the imperial pilsner style and this is one of the best that I’ve had. Super-fresh growler from Pinocchios - thanks to the guys for hooking it up. Hints of grass and spice on the nose. Crisp on the palate, caramel, and bread flavors with an excellent hop/floral finish. Hey Delco, get it on tap while you can.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1pint 9.4oz bottle into a Pilsener glass. The label has a short description of the beer and its abv. (7.5%) No freshness date. Appearance: It has a light hazy with a nice golden hue and a tall rocky head to top it off. (The last glass has a much heavier haze.)The head has excellent retention and it clings to the glass leaving lots of thick chunky lacing behind. Smell: This is lovely and full of fruity pale and biscuity sweetness with juicy hops. Notes of pineapple, peach and floral/citrusy hops fill the nose. Taste/Palate: To start with I must say that there was less hop bitterness than I was expecting from the continually-hopped beer. What was there was in very good balance. As with the aroma I picked up nice tropical fruit notes on sweet pale biscuity base, complemented with citrusy hops. The finish is fruity and balanced with pleasant hop bitterness. On the palate it has a firm medium feel with nice lively and balanced carbonation. Notes: This is just an outstanding lager beer and I would highly recommend this to anyone!!!

Very nice Pilsner from Dogfish with their standard hopping rates; nice blend of Euro malts and bittering hope with a more subdued but still present and memorable blend of aromatic hops

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Bottle/750ml - Pours a light golden amber in color with a medium white head that faded, but left some quite nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is more faint than I would have expected, but there is some hint of maltiness and a goodly share of both floral and pine hops. Flavor is a bit more bold with the hoppiness being somewhat dominant over any malts that might attempt to bleed through. Again, the pine resins and the floral hops come through strongly. Decent enough, but way too expensive for the quality. There are many examples of pils that cost far less and are just as good. Even though I liked it, I would not buy it again at this price....

Pours a unfiltered hazy straw color with a small head and a tiny ring of lacing. The nose shows some malt with a bit of light hops in the background. The body is medium and shows quite lively. The flavor is malt with a nicely hop blend that leaves a crisp, hop finish, with no bitterness. I finished one glass and wanted another. I enjoyed today; on draft @ Sunset Grill and Tap, Allston, MA.

Aroma: juniper and resin, very ’fresh’; Appearance: slightly hazy, pale yellow, going toward honey, thinner but very fizzy head on pour that persists, yields lace; Taste: very superior for its style, I’ve had Sam Adam’s Imperial Pils, and this one is a little more in your face/bold, every once in a while, the palate tricks me into thinking its an IPA, tastes a lot like it smells, heady juniper and resin, with a bit of citrus, but not necessarily grapefruit citrus; Palate: very, very drinkable, I can easily finish the whole bottle myself and not feel like a glutton, again, its just ’refreshing’ if you know what I mean; Overall: I highly recommend that you try it, just don’t get hooked because it was pricey!

MacBoost (1356) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2011
Hoppy Imperial Pilsner from DFH. Unfiltered lager. Pours a hazy yellow, looks exactly like a blue moon. Floral hops in the nose... but not like an IPA. Slight sour taste to it. Cannot detect the alcohol. A bit expensive for what you get. Would drink again if it was cheaper. Not as good as Victory Prima Pils.

From tap at Sunset Grill. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is mild spiced and cereal malty. Crisp hoppy too. Dry, malty and solid citrusy to grapefruity hoppy. Bone dry and bitter finish.
