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.

From notes 10/31/11: Pours a slightly hazed gold with a thick lasting white head that leaves a modest coating of lace. Bready malt and crisp hop aroma. Nice balance of sweet bready malts and Noble hops; sweet middle, citrus finish with a bittersweet aftertaste.

Reviewed from notes. I poured this into a pilsener glass since it is considered an American Double/Imperial Pilsener. The appearance was a slightly hazy pale yellow with a two finger white foamy head that rises just a bit to mushroom cap just above the glass. She leaves some nice foamy thick lacing gracing the sides of the glass. The smell has a nice light spiciness adding to some pale malts. The taste was sweet and has a nice light spice to it. The aftertaste was spicy and sweet and leads to a dry finish. On the palate, it sits about a light to medium with a decent sessionability running about it. The carbonation is good for the style and good for me as its crisp and smooth. Overall, this is a great American Double/Imperial Pilsener well worth your time and well worthy to have again.

Look: Poured a beautiful hazy yellow. Nice big frothy head, tiny bubbles. very effervescent. almost looked like a hefeweizen. 4

Smell: Kind of a bready wheaty smell. getting a little bit of orange peel smell. 4

Taste: fairly malty, bready yeast, bitter finish. nice. 4

Mouthfeel: tiny bubbles and fairly full body (for the pils style) make this beer very smooth. 4.25

Overall: nice beer. smooth, tasty, and a great beer for spring or summer. 4
