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.

Cool - RB has a new category for imperial pilsners and lagers. And I think this belongs somewhere near the top of the list. The label is a drawing of a...monastery (?) silhouetted against big city skyscrapers for some reason. MA has a rich, sweet floral pilsener aroma. There is a bit of fresh cake in there too - this smells as good as any pils I can think of. The flavor is fresh bread and tasty hops. I can tell from the big heavy bottle and the creative presentation that this is a DFH head release, but it strikes me as a pretty straightforward pilsener - and a very good one!

750ml bottle. 2010 2B. Pours cloudy yellow/gold with a large fluffy white head that holds a rocky island and leaves rings of lacing down the glass. Aroma is light bread, noble hops, lemon, grass, floral hops. Moderate to good strength. Flavor is sweet bready malt, lemon, grass, a touch of spice, some other citrus such as oranges, moderate sweetness in the front and middle, finishes with a nice bitterness. Bold flavor for a Pilsner. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, medium to high carbonation, a touch sticky. A tasty & hoppy Imperial Pilsner, helped by being a very fresh sample. Alcohol is well hidden making this very drinkable. Nice one, Dogfish Head!

750 ml bottle from Capone’s. Pours hazy gold with white head. Nose is Saazy hops, lemongrassy, somewhat spicy and fruity. Tastes relatively dense on the palate, complex, with fruity, peppery, spicy flavors matching the substsantial hop bill and overall finishing crispness. Nice.

This beer reminds me why my love for this style is growing. A bright and shining golden yellow beer is presented in my New Glarus pilsner glass. Clarity could use a bump, there is a slight chill haze or something. Wild lacing from a dense head. The dominant aromas are crackery pilsner malts and nobel hops. The malt base is certainly strong but the hops lend subtle balance. Aaahh, this stuff is refreshing, for what it is. Smooth crackery malts gracefully bow to crisp fruity hops with a spike of pine.

Beerdrinker79 (2047) - Idaho, USA - JAN 15, 2011
750 ml. bottle- Pours pale golden with a nice two finger pillowy white head and a nice fountain of bubbles floating to the surface, the lacework creates rings of thick foam from every time I take a drink. Aroma is spicy pine and citrus with a generic pale lager aroma in the background. The flavor is piney hops followed by a wallop of bitterness that would rival any 100 plus IBU IPA, there is also a spicy almost peppery hop presence, I love the hops they chose here, very distinctive. The body is medium, the carbonation is high, finish is strong and bitter. this is a winner and the hop head in me loves this.

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. There’s also a good slightly bitter hoppy finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a little bit creamy and has good carbonation. Drinkability is good, it’s an easy and enjoyable brew to drink. I think it’s a solid overall brew, I’d 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. i’m fine with a regular pilsner at regular pilsner prices.

Lightly hazy golden pour with a big head. Aroma is moderately sweet malt, pine, spice and lemon. Taste is a bit sweet and citrusy, with some spicy and resinous hops. Good.

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.
