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.

dionysus (1448) - Arizona, USA - AUG 21, 2010
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.

Tsotsi (178) - Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2010
750ml Bottle. Pours golden color with a sizable head. Nose is grassy, floral and citrus hops. Flavors are nice citrus and floral hops, some sweetness as well. Finishes with a nice bitterness. Not as light as most pilsners and a medium body. Nice beer.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 8, 2010
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.

Floback (523) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 7, 2010
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.

Champagne bottle (dogfish head) served in a tulip. Pour is hazy gold with three fingers of extremely foamy head which leaves a very nice show of lacing. Nose is very light yeast and very light hops ... I can barely smell much at all actually. Taste is very neutral with a bitter grapefruit thing that takes over about half way in and runs the rest of the coarse, right through the finish. This is not terrible, but I probably wouldn’t drink this one again unless my choices were Budweiser or Pabst ;)

nearbeer (3631) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 1, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2010 750 DFH My Antonia version. Clear burnt orange with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Nose is lemon-resin and light grapefruit. Taste is the same, but more of it, which isn’t necessarily a good thing. Near-medium body is almost smooth, but has some fizzy flareups, and is toward the dry side with all the hops. Decent, but pretentious and way overpriced compared to the 40 ouncers that are nearly as good for half the price in the malt liquor section.

Dogfish head my antonia bottle. Pours dirty blond with white head. Nose is lemon zest, pepper and grass. Taste has strong malt character, zest, white pepper and spice.

750 ml capped bottle from Spirits RB. Poured a nice looking clear bodied bronze/orange underneath a large a foamy bright white head. Aroma is dry with lots of grain, cereal, bread and then a touch of pineapple and tropical fruit out of no where. Fullwe bodied then expected with a dry finish and lots of carbonation. Flavor is like the aroma and concentrated a lot on grains, cereal and malt. This is super dry and malt forward even for a pils. Overall it’s not worth the hefty price tag but what Italian ber really is?? (EDIT....I know this is a DFH brew and therefore made in America but it’s listed under an Italian brewer). (EDIT TO THE ORIGIANL EDIT....I know DFH brews get pricey, especially the one off large bottles,but this one is even pricey for DFH being that it’s only 7.5% ABV, no odd ingredients, and not barrel aged in anyway)

On tap at the DFH Rehoboth Brewpub. Pours an yellow haze with a generous white foam head. Has an aroma of citrus and malts. Sweet up front and then a hit of bitter hops. Has more of a DIPA feel to me. Will pick up a few bottles to try again.
