3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Bottle pours gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is floral and grassy with some assisting citrus (lemon) and stone fruit (tangerine, peach). Flavor shows the same and is supported by a pale malt backbone, with some toffee poking out from time to time. Overall body is light to moderate, moderate sweetness, and finishes with a moderate grassy bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dogfish head label bottle from Total Wine.
Pours a slightly hazed orange-yellow with a very large fluffy white pillowy head. I had to wait a bit for the head to subdue and after a few minutes it was similar to what you’d see when watching the surface of an actively fermenting beer. The Aroma is subtle with saaz hops, grass, malt. Flavor is grassy, hoppy, crisp pils all the way with a firm bitter herbal grassy finish. Clean, easy to drink, and the imperialization did not make it too overly sweet like many other imperial pils. I really enjoyed this beer. Kicks the crap out of Golden Shower/Era.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle with the Dogfish Head label from Total Wine. Pours a large one inch head with a lemon-gold body. The head holds well. Not much aroma besides subtle notes of biscuit and resiny hops. More biscuit, subtle pine cone, and very subtle citrus are included. Flavors are crisp besides a slight bite of alcohol that contribute to the mouth-filling body. Medium/high carbonation. I like this Pilsner.
