Style: American Double / Imperial Pilsner

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.

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

A great beer. Tasted and mouth feel felt more like an ale than a Pilsner, also poured a bit cloudy. I enjoyed it anyway and would love to try it on draft. Italy (or Deleware) here I come.

Bottle from Happy Harry's in Bear, DE. One of my first exposurews to DFH beer. Yowza! A delicious strong pilsener. Beautiful on the pour, and wonderful on the palate. A gem!

Bottled
Slightly hazy yellow body with big foamy white head
Sawdust and slight muted citrus aroma
Quite an unusual flavour very woody then pine
more an oddfish than a dogfish
really worth a try tho
