Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Bottle from 4/22/13 Poured into a Stella Artois glass.

Pours up a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma is of honey and fruit with hints of biscuit. The flavor falls a bit short, probably a result of being rather old. There is a subtle bitterness which counters the sweet peachy notes. There are other fruity flavors as well like bitter orange and maybe pears as well. The mouthfeel is quite nice. There is a nice light crispness to this beer. Overall, I like this beer. It is crisp and refreshing. I need to try a fresher bottle to compare.
