My Antonia started out as a Collaboration beer when Sam brewed it at Birra del Borgo (hope you can read Italian) outside Rome, Italy with owner/brewer Leonardo DiVencenzo in October of 2008. In 2010, we began brewing My Antonia here at Dogfish Head brewery in Delaware for U.S. distribution. My Antonia (named after the Willa Cather read), is a continually-hopped imperial pilsner. This original 2008 batch was brewed and distributed by Birra del Borgo. A small quantity was sent over to the United States. The 2010 release will go to limited markets here in the U.S.. It should start hitting the shelves by mid-late June.

    Pours gold with slight haze and dense, lasting head. Big notes of grain and grass play against each other. Loads of flavor, this isn't your run-of-the-mill pils. Light-to-medium bodied with a soft, fluffy mouthfeel. Excellent.

    Pours a slightly hazy medium golden color with a huge fluffy white head. Smells of citrus and caramel on top of bready grainy malt. Bits of grapefruit and lemons meld with the sweet grainy and bready aromas. The flavor is sweet with bready and caramel malts with some grapefruit and a lot of lemon from the hops. There's a touch of spice and a bit of earth and a fair amount of bitter hop bite that lingers long after every sip. Medium body with a semi dry finish, a moderate to high level of carbonation and a sweet almost syrupy mouthfeel.

    A friend brought this to a fantasy football draft last year. I didn't review at the time cause I thought I would buy a full sample on my own. Never got around to it, and honestly, don't think I would spend $10 for this. Decent brew....smooth for the style, punching some grassy/earthy/wheaty flavors. But, in the end, it's just a good strong pilsner. I mainly drink pilsners because they are lighter and has less ABV%. So, not a huge fan of imperial pilsners unless they REALLY stand out. This one may fall just short.

    Pours out a light golden yellow color with medium sized really fluffy white head with lots of carbonation. The aroma is sweetness, mild citrus, grassy grainy notes and some breadiness. The taset is hops, breadiness, leomongrass, citrus and honey. The mouthfeel was medium bodied and drinks easy with the carbonation.

    Slightly cloudy gold with a dense cap slow to dissolve. Aroma of grapefruit, grass, and soy sauce. Crazy bitter grapefruit oil flavor up front, musty yeast, kind of bready and soapy. Sticky lacing down the glass. Not really what I expected or wanted from this style.

    The only dogfish I've had because it comes from italy, otherwise you can't get dogfish. Taste is very satisfying, sweet and smoothly hoppy. A nice little tingle with a floral finish that you want to just keep going on in your mouth, Biggest disappointment is that there is only a pint in this $8 bottle, in fact it feels like what you are mainly paying for is the glass which is heavier and thicker than i originally suspected. So if you're sharing this for a special occassion, expect to have a couple of wine glasses ready.

    Did not love the smell of this, like fresh cut weeds, too thick and overpowering in the nose. Appearance was also not great, I can appreciate a yellow pils but not a cloudy one. Flavor and mouthfeel were really good though, enough to get past the smell. Great dry resin finish. Would have been much better with some balance between smell and taste.

    Comes out of the tap a clear amber with a respectable, if not persistent, white head. Fairly strong aroma is malty and fruity with just a hint of hops. Flavor is malty and has a firm fruity undertone that is mainly pear, along with more than a hint of hops and touches of both sweetness and bitterness. Texture is almost silky smooth with a subtle fizz. I know that I tend to be unfair to pilsners, but I hope I gave this one a fair shake.

    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.

    I had this beer on New Years Even 2010 - it wasn't bad. I was expecting something different though - I'm not sure what, but this didn't meet my expectations. This beer tastes more like a strong ale than a pilsner. While this was an "imperial pilsner" I expected a strong crsip flavor - not something I found to be more akin to an ale.
