750 ml. Hazy yellow with a big, Willa Cather-ish head. My first reaction was that it was boozy, but that settled down after a while. It isnít ridiculously hopped. Thereís some bitterness to balance all those grains, and mostly German hop flavors. Comes across as more than its 7.5% would suggest. Of course does not bring what a normal pilsner does (crispness, refreshment). I donít know if more means better here.

Dogfish Head My Antonia is a very sparkling, slightly hazy golden lager with a huge, pillowy white head that has outstanding retention and lacing. It has a doughy aroma with a little grass and spice. Itís pretty full bodied; lively, but smooth with a really clean, dry finish. It has a simple, well hopped taste. Thereís a leafy bitterness. Itís a little sweet and a little boozy. It goes down real nice.

2011-01-29. Crisp yellow body with a frothy white head. 3+ Grassy straw, floral notes, hints of dandelions, something else I can not put my finger on. 7+ Flavour is surprisingly bitter, alcohol comes out in the finish. Interesting hop character defies my dissection attempts, notes of grass, florals and hints briefly at tropical fruit. Average palate. Interesting, not entirely sure what to make of it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Capped 750 from Malt & Vine. Pours slightly hazy gold with a 4 finger foamy near white head. Aroma is mostly fruity hop. Might be some grass. Near full bodied. Flavor is hop. Light stone fruit; citrus; herb/grass. Thatís the order of appearance. Finish leaves the mouth a bit coated. Hop oil? This is just all hop, and thatís very good. Not a NW hop bomb. Just a very thoroughly hopped beer. Excellent.
