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.

Nailed it. DFH strikes again. Man, this was just delicious, they perfectly harnessed a style that can easily get gratuitous. Drinks like a much smaller beer, and I mean that as a great compliment. This, I’m going to pick up again.

glennmastrange (2311) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2010
Bottle. Moderate malt aroma of grain, herbs and dried grass for the hops, mustiness for the yeast with a background note of pepper. Head is large, frothy/foamy with good thick lacing and is fully lasting. Color is crystal clear gold. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a carbonation between lively and fizzy and a dry finish. Basic aroma but excellent in interpretation of the style. This is an excellent version of an Imperial Pils.

Nice head-lacing. Hazy golden body. Modest smell of malts and fruity hops. Semi dried fruits to the taste buds. Noticeable alcohol. Medium bodied. Draught, half pint at Sheffield Tap 30 Sep 10.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 27, 2010
750ml bottle. Pours a deep hazy golden yellow with a huge frothy white head that recedes very quickly to a clumpy cap and leaves spots of lacing. The aroma is very sweet with caramelized sugar and citrus hops with a spiciness in the nose as well. The taste has the same sweetness but with lots of toasted grains, herbal and citrus hops and a spicy sweet finish. There is an overall grassy character to things. The mouthfeel is full bodied and sweet for the style, spicy and slightly dry. I’ve had quite a few impy pilsners this season and this one is decent but not one of the best. Still good.

SoberCajun (111) - Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 24, 2010
A very interesting beer - pours clear pale orange with a large white head, tons of lacing. A nice floral hops aroma with some laundry detergent in the nose and flavor. Really nice balance overall between the spicy hops and malt notes.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 23, 2010
750ml from Total Wine, Durham. It ends up being a fairly interesting hybrid of a slightly stronger American pils (not quite imperialized, and with a secret crush on unfiltered Czechs) and a fairly typical DFH pale, perhaps even a 60 Minute variant. Abundantly hopped, that’s evident, but somehow the character ends up being a bit indistinct: almost the hop equivalent of Allspice. Nice luxuriant mouthfeel, handsome brew, but nothing too dazzling.

sinkr (323) - Odenton, Maryland, USA - OCT 19, 2010
750->Lager glass: Pours a huge, rocky, white head atop a clear yellow body. Good carbonation is exhibited. Aroma of grain, wheat, and clove. Body is medium, finishing with a sweetness that is exhibited by a lemon-honey overall taste and alcoholic mouthfeel. A very-very-very nice imperial pilsner.

JoeTheYounger (1148) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - OCT 18, 2010
Trade bottle from GMCC2281. Poured a hazy orange color with thick white head. Aroma was spices, bread, basil. Taste was very crisp, dry, with a hint of honey and spices. Pretty good.

Bottle from Canal’s in Delran Nj. Golden pour with aromas of malts, hop and grass. Clean dry finish. Good!
