Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: dasenebler on 07-15-2010

My Antonia (named after the Willa Cather read), is a continually-hopped imperial pilsner. This lager for ale lovers is citrusy, sweet and refined.

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 2008. In 2010, we began brewing My Antonia here in Delaware for U.S. distribution.

I typically don't go for pilsners, but was willing to give this one a try due to it being an imperial. For me, it started off good, but something in the finish didn't sit well on my palette. I found this beer to be drinkable, but not enjoyable.

Taken from notes, as I had this one a few months back. Generally I enjoy double Pilsners and this one was no exception. My only dis on this is that it came across a touch hot in a medicinal kind of way, but that taste sunk in after the initial hop bittered grain taste. I was attracted to this beer after reading My Antonia, which I was turned onto after eating kolaches while in a Texan town strong in Czech influence.

Taste seemed off with the bottle I had. Not a fan personally of this one.

It's a very clean double pilsner. I enjoyed this beer a lot. Crisp, bubbly and tasty! Would buy again, for sure.

Poured into a pilsner glass:
Gargantuan fluffy white head, sticks around and leaves scattered sticky lacing. Body is yellow-golden and ever do slightly hazy, with a crisp look as far as carbonation goes.
Smells sweet of corn bread, with grains and some far-away grass and citrus, some alcohol. Very nice.
Taste is like the nose, but with some lemongrass present, grain/ herbal hops, and it's a bite-finishing beer that has a super-smooth mouthfeel, without feeling well-carbonated. Spicy banana ester hints (in both nose and taste) after a short while Near-medicinal.
Intriguing, flavorful, fun to sip.
This had the most dominating creamy foam that stuck around each pour that I can ever recall. I'd recommend this to any imperial pilsner fan, even though the Italian version of this beer collaboration was somehow superior, as my memory recalls.
