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.

Pours gold into a tulip. Bright white head with good retention slowly recedes to skim surface leaving spotted spiders. Summer pit fruit, dusty citrus and resin aromas. Sweet with upfront caramel turning slightly hot in the lasting peach pit finish.

20100921 bottle from Wine World. Medium gold, mostly clear, with large off-white head of thick, sticky suds that last and last. Beautiful stuff, in fact. Nice noble aroma with some pine, grapefruit, lemongrass, some peppery alcohol, as well as a disappointing dose of vinyl. Solid maltiness is just a touch sweet but plenty sturdy. I’d love a bigger Saaz presence, a bit more bitterness though not more dryness, but it’s pretty nice overall and was a fair pairing with some nutty Manchego or whatever that Spanish cheese was.

Hazy golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of honey, citrus, pine, floral hops, wood, and light spices. Taste of pine, honey, citrus, toffee, some caramel, and a dry finish with light alcohol.

Bomber 2010 thanks to Erin & John. Pours hazy gold, off white head. Aroma is dried fruit and ketchup. Flavor is grassy, malty. I just don’t think that imperial pilsners can pull it off. Imperial IPAs yeah, Imperial stouts yeah, but imp. pilsners are just not working, Imp Alts either, for that matter. Imp. Pils. and Imp. Alts. are just too thin in aroma, flavor, and body, to be able to support a higher alcohol content.

Poured from a a DFH 750ml bottle. Aroma of hops, which is unexpected from a pils...but not from DFH. Pours a nice golden yellow with ample frothy white head that lasts. The tastes are of hops (simcoe very present), moderately bitter for a pils, but very nice. Suprisingly, I like this a lot. Not a big pils fan, but this is a nice brew. Texture is thin, like you would expect, carbonation is lively, but not overdone. Finish is clean and crisp. Nicely done, DFH.

750ml Dogfish Bottle: Aroma of Pils malt, noble and fruity hops, light fruit, light tropical fruit, light soap, flowers, and slight peach. Poured yellow/gold/amber in color with a huge, creamy, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear/slightly cloudy. Sparkling to very sparkling. Full of small particles throughout. Excellent lacing. Flavor is medium sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of noble and fruity hops, Pils malt, fruit, flowers, and some soap. Medium body. Oily, slick texture become lightly dry and slightly chalky. Average carbonation. Light to medium sweet, lightly bitter, fruit and noble hop, Pils malt, flower and fruit finish is slightly dry.

Tap at DFH Brewery. Pours a lightly hazy golden with a medium creamy/bubbly white lacing head. Aroma of spicy and citrusy hops and sweet bready malt. Flavor of the same. Lots of sweet orange notes. Not cloying.

750ml bottle from BOLTZ – thanks J! Pours clear gold with a thick 3 finger start white head that leaves nice lacing. The nose is malt, citrus hops and light grain. The taste is caramel, lemongrass, toffee and a bitter tart grapefruit finish. Medium mouthfeel. Tasty stuff – thanks again J!

(750ml bottle). Pours harvest gold (thank Carole for the crayola lesson). Thin white head. Aroma is bready, citrusy. Taste is sweetish, but some bitterness. Finish is lighter bodied with thin oily texture. Finish is bitter. Nice beer.

Apparently this is brewed by Birra del Borgo? Poured a very clear yellow/amber with a white foamy head. Very hoppy aroma with some sweet fruit and raspberries. Good flavor, lots of hops, very grassy. Alcohol is slightly noticeable. Not bad, but not the smoothest beer I’ve had.
