My Antonia ~ Dogfish Head

Appearance: ripe straw/hay/grains under a lovely white head which leaves a solid film full circle. Fades into a blotchy film both thick and thin. Swirls nice but without more lace.

Nose: lemon, key lime, green grass and fresh damp sticky whole hop cones. Hawaiian bread and fresh sweet rolls. Caramelized sugar crunchies. Dry, brisk, and invigorating.

Palate: dry, crisp bitterness with crunchy sweetness along the sides. Bright dew-dropped green grass blades. Lemon peel. Hop pellets with a nip of concentrated musty herbalness. Soft sweet lightly chewy bready mouthfeel. Tingle of spice atop tongue and in breath. Drinkable and flavorable.

Final Thoughts: thinking outside the box is what Sam and Dogfish Head do best, a talent I am more than pleased to quaff over and over again. To take a truly classic style as the Pilsner and create a new classic with the fine folks at Birra del Borgo and imperialize it in divine tasty styles…yum is all I have to say.
