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 bottle. Served in a pilsner glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy gold color with an inch and a half frothy white head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. Aroma is bready malt along with some grassy, spicy and citrusy hops. I think the brew tastes similar to the aroma, but with the addition of a bit of peppery spice. Also, I think the grassy hop and bready malt flavors are the strongest. Thereís also a good slightly bitter hoppy finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a little bit creamy and has good carbonation. Drinkability is good, itís an easy and enjoyable brew to drink. I think itís a solid overall brew, Iíd buy it again in the future.

Bottle - 750mL crowned. Pours a translucent gold with a tall, foamy white head. Aroma is rather lemony and grassy with light biscuity malts int he background. Taste is rather spicy with more lemon notes, soapy hops, grassy notes, sweet malt, faint honey and biscuit. Body is medium with a moderate carbonation and a pleasant crispness to it. Finishes with more spice, lemony notes, grassy and Noble hops, sweet malt, and biscuit. Touch more of the soapy hops here too.

slightly hazy and golden with a thick fluffy head. citrusy and bready aroma. tastes of lemon, pepper and maybe a little biscuit...slightly sweet. first imperial pilsner for me. thought it was pretty good, although overpriced. iím fine with a regular pilsner at regular pilsner prices.

I had my hopes up pretty high for this beer, hoping it would be even bettter than Sam Adams Imperial Pilsner, but alas, it was not. The appearance of this beer was impressive; a cloudy golden yellow with a big frothy head, but the aroma and flavor left a little to be desired. The flavors were that classic pils malt that I love accompanied with some bready and spice hints and a finish of very light fruity hops. Good, but not great. Fell short of my hopes.

Meh...an OK beer. Not what I was expecting. Aroma was so so. Pale malt with a hint of biscuit. Pour was a nice medium-light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was very subdued and light. Lemongrass, biscuit and grass with a weird sugary aftertaste hitting the back sides of the tongue. Hides the alcohol very well. I wouldíve guessed with this little flavor the beer was 4-5%. Somewhat of a backhanded compliment. Decent carbonation and not much aftertaste. Not terrible but very average.

750 ml bottle poured a clear tarnished gold with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of bread, earthiness, spicy hops and light pine. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth dry finish. Flavors of bread, straw, spicy hops and a hint of pine with a smooth dry lingering moderatly bitter finish.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Nose of bready malt, dry sour dough bread, some pepper and grass as well as nice fruity citrus. Pours pale golden, nice lasting white head, soft sheets of lace. The flavor is nice and hoppy throughout - grassy, peppery, hints of floral notes and grapefruit. Nice and fruity finish, dry with some lingering hop resins. Very drinkable, nice stuff really.
