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.

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 (5305) - 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 (717) - 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 (4117) - 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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
