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.

750ml bottle from Alís of Hampden. Pours a hazy yellowish color with a well-formed white head and good lacing. The aroma is grainy and bready with pale malt evident as well as grassy and citrusy Noble hops. The flavor is very pleasant if not as hoppy as expected. Sweet but not too sweet pale malt, grain, citrus, and light fruits. Smooth on the palate but not very dry with medium body. Iíd personally peg this as more of an imperial helles lager, but whatev dogg, itís a good one either way.

Poured from 750ml bottle into a goblet glass. Hazy gold with a fluffy, bone white, 2-3 finger head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is nice and hoppy. Notes of citrus, grassy-ness. Taste: Citrusy, like the aroma. Grapefruit and lemon peel with a nice kick of grassy, citrus hops. Crisp, very refreshing. Medium bodied. Honestly, I expected a little more from this brew. Its well-crafted but a little conservative compared to the rest of the Dogfish Head lineup. Its still worthy of a try. My Antonia is one of the breweries "Occasional Rarities," so you should definitely pick it up if you come across it because you may not have another chance for a while.

Clear golden in color.. Aroma is crisp and slightly citrusy... Flavor is light and crisp, notes of citrus and banana, hops are noticeable but not overbearing, alcohol is well balanced, hard to believe its 7.5%, very well done by DFH, not surprising that they do lagers well too....

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2010
Bottle from Whole Foods Market, Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear golden color with a large pillowy white head. Pale grainy malt aroma with earthy, floral and herbal hop notes. The taste is big earthy, floral, spicy and citrus hops. Caramel, pale grains as well, almost doughy. Medium bodied. Decent beer.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Pours a dark golden banana yellow color with a frothy, pillowy 2.5 finger white head with excellent retention, only slowly fading to a lasting cap that streaks the glass with rings and splotches of soapy lacing. Earthy, floral aroma with some piny and citrus hop character as well as hints of sweet alcohol, pilsner malt, biscuit, lemon grass and crisp light fruit. Slight bready yeast in the nose with hints of lemon, apple and pear. Medium body with lots of tight carbonation up front along with some earthy bitter hops, crisp light fruit, alcohol heat, bread and crisp light fruit. Pretty bitter with lots of earthy piny hop character which is countered by the pilsner malt, sweet alcohol, grass, straw and light fruit notes. Slight dry finish. This beer is interesting because it is an extremely hoppy interpretation of a style that isnít usually so. There is also a bit too much of an alcohol presence that hurts the drinkability. Not quite balanced enough and the ABV is not well masked. I like both of these breweries so I was excited to try this but it was only average.

Somehow I thought I already had this... thanks to Daley at Blokes and Birds for previewing a bottle with me! Great bitterness, chalky, certainly noble and west coast hops, glad I got that part right, interesting play of the two, very good but still leaves your mouth maybe wanted more of one or the other, perhaps itís the chalky bitterness that is throwing it off, really quite delicious though. Interesitng body though, has that odd DFH residual sweetness going on even though it drinks on the dry side for an imperial. Really well done and a much needed addition to the Imperial Pils category... seriously we need more of these.

Poured into a Sam Addams pint glass. I got an awesome amount of white fluffy head on top of a clear golden colored brew. The head on this brew just lasted and followed the brew lacing all the way down the glass. You get a great amount of sweet and spicy aroma coming from the brew I got some grass and pepper to it along with a nice bready malt. The flavor was malty sweet but had enough hop bitter to be perfectly balanced in my book. If it wasnít for the price tag Iíd be drinking more of these. It was medium to light in the mouth with great carbonation. The 22 oz bottle went way to fast I will be looking forward to the next fresh batch I see

Magnum from my rip and run. pours honey cloudy with steady carbonation. Thick white head with clingy lacing. Rich sweet malts waft openly from glass. Body is reminiscent of a few Czech heavy lagers I have consumed but without the cheapo- alcohol bomb lagerness. this has a separate angle. Subtly sweet huge body moves in a single determined wave. Hops lay in wait and show themselves during a quick intake of brew and then lackadaisically reduce to the wings never totally going out of sight. A nice departure for Dogfish that works. See guys .... you can make a decent beer without adding eye of newt and dried gopher dung during the boil!
