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!

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.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a decent sized head. Nice, malty aroma. Light grass with a hint of lemon? Nice, strong pils taste. Send of hops as well, with the alcohol not as masked as I thought. Very good balance. Another impressive brew from DFH.

lamas (1360) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 28, 2010
750mL Dogfish Head bottle. Bottled in: 2010. A clear amber pour with a thick and fluffy off-white head. A crisp, grainy aroma that features plenty of grapefruits, mild caramel maltiness, light grassiness, and a touch of wet cardboard. Thin to medium-bodied and a little creamy. Nice balance taste-wise. Wheaties cereal and mildly sweet toffee start things off. Hints of vanilla in the middle. Grassy hoppiness at the end with a touch of citrus. A dry finish with a bit of black pepper. Some alcohol warmth throughout. Not bad at all.

Had on draft at Dogfish Head restaurant in Gaithersburg, MD. A pleasant surprise on draft. Took one whiff of a sample and knew I wanted this. Nice clean beer, that might be accessible to those who aren’t beer geeks. Very nice, crisp yet hoppy taste. Not overbearing. A pleasant surprise.

Purchased as My Antonia in bottle. Pale gold color with lacy head. grassy,hay nose. medium bitterness, Odd kind of plastic taste. I can recognise the pilsner style, but I expected more from Dogfish
