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.

Thinker (62) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Aroma is malty and hoppy but also has a rich wood and honey smell. Appearance is cloudy brown with a white head. Flavor is dominated by a smooth maltyness and a flavor that I can only guess is wood... Thinker

Lilja (1682) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2014
Smak och doft av humle, jäst, citrus med toner av citron, gräs, persika och ananas. Lagom sötma, bra beska, en aning torr och sträv. God kombination.

"wonderful aroma...pushing a 9...pils malt, generous hops...great balance. cloudy yellow/gold with fluffy tan head. flavor sweet and bitter, crisp, satisfying. gotta get another boulevard to have a head to head, but one of the best pils lagers i’ve had. oddly hoppier in aroma, and maybe in flavor, than atleast 1 DFH ipa."

smell has a grape undertone to it that is slightly sweet and good....taste is more bitter than it smells...hops smooth out a bit as you drink...just barely qualifies as a good beer....

It has a light hazy with a nice golden hue and a tall rocky head to top it off. (The last glass has a much heavier haze.)The head has excellent retention and it clings to the glass leaving lots of thick chunky lacing behind. This is lovely and full of fruity pale and biscuity sweetness with juicy hops. Notes of pineapple, peach and floral/citrusy hops fill the nose. To start with I must say that there was less hop bitterness than I was expecting from the continually-hopped beer. What was there was in very good balance. As with the aroma I picked up nice tropical fruit notes on sweet pale biscuity base, complemented with citrusy hops. The finish is fruity and balanced with pleasant hop bitterness. On the palate it has a firm medium feel with nice lively and balanced carbonation.

This is more like a pilsner, than anything. Pours a somewhat cloudy golden color. Aroma was typical pilsner malt with some spice and hop notes. Taste was on the bitter side, but refreshing, with a good balance of malt and hops. There was a hint of lemon. Emphasis was on the noble hops rather than west coast hops. Full-bodied strong mouthfeel and a grainy texture. Still very drinkable, and very good.

Foggy orange yellow pour from 22oz bottle. Weird taste. Good though. Graham cracker and earthy wheat taste. Sweet grassy aroma. Had at lake. Not bad

Bottle from Pioppi’s. Pours out a hazy light lemony color. Big white head that settles to a thick lace. Aroma and flavor is on the strong, sweet side. Some hopping. Too sweet in the middle. Lingering bitterness.

My first dogfish head. Not entirely impressed or dissapointed. Underwhelmed? Possibly. Everything was a little better than okay. I guess expectations were too high.

Cloudy golden color. Fine body. Less aroma than some pilsners, but bitter and sharp aftertaste.
