Dogfish Head "My Antonia"
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery - Milton, Delaware USA
Imperial Pilsner (ABV 7.5%)

[Best served in a Pilsner glass]

Rating: 3.9/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 16/20

The pour was a cloudy golden amber with a huge (3-4 finger) foamy white head that had great retention, lasting throughout with some really nice spotty lacing.

The aroma was very strong scented of citrus and herbal hops with a grain malt and a nice dose of an earthy yeast and a mild hint citrus.

The taste was bitter right off with a nice hoppy presence then became a little bitter-sour with a touch of citrus and had a large taste of yeast at the end (typical for a pilsner). The flavor lasted a good long time with the hops, yeast and citrus meshing nicely on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was just a bit heavier than light in body with a very dry texture and a bold carbonation.

Overall a nice crisp hoppy Pilsner, I am always thankful when a brewer brews beer like this.

    Mark I see this in the Bomb Shelter at the store all the time. I'll have to pick up a bottle.
