Dogfish Head My Antonia

My Antonia poured a clear, golden yellow color with a thumb width, white head. The aroma is pleasant, a nice balance of pilsner malt and hops. The body is slightly sweet up front, with a nice pilsner malt base. The finish is very dry with a crisp hop bitterness. The head retention is great and the beer left plenty of lacing on the glass.

Overall, this is a wonderful beer, one of the best representatives of this style. A big pilsner without taking the "Imperial" overboard. My Antonia is is balanced from the nose to the finish, hides its 7.5% ABV well, and can be either enjoyed by itself or paired with a wide range of dishes.
