COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Embrace a classic! Home Town Blonde is an old world style pilsner, assertively hopped with four premium hop varieties. Tettninger, Saaz, Styrian Golding and Strisselspalt varieties all grace this German-style brew with the complex character you enjoy in a classic pilsner. Expect to pour an elegant blonde glass of beer, crowned with a rich head of foam that resonates with our chorus of hops. Although delicate in appearance, our Hometown Blonde has a backbone, but of course that’s no surprise in Wisconsin. Enjoy!

SHANER4 (479) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 26, 2007
12oz bottle - Poured slightly hazy straw color with small head. Has a wheat beer taste with some spice. My brother bought me a 12 pac of New Glarus for Christmas and had 4 different varieties of brew. This one is probably the best. A light beer and very easy to drink. Could hardly taste any hops.

BBB63 (6019) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Bottle and served in a NG pint glass: Clean golden hue with a nice lasting frothy lead and very good lace. The aroma has notes of classic herbal and grassy hops (the Saaz shines) with pale biscuity malt, hint of apple, faint chalky yeast esters. The taste is mildly fruity and soft grains at the beginning with some light handed bitter to follow. Grassy and herbal character is dominate throughout and leads to high quality old world enjoyment. The mouth feel is sprite and refreshing with a nicely done dry attenuated finish. A winner for the genre, one the best American made Pils I have had. Try one out for an easy session beer.

highibus (721) - Vail, Arizona, USA - DEC 20, 2007
Clean blonde color with creamy thick head. Smells of bright hops and light malt. Nice hop presence for this pilsner. Balanced nicely with a light malt presence. Palate is light. A nice beer for the style. Thanks to Bockyhorsey for this one.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - NOV 15, 2007
12 oz bottle from iowaherkeye - thanks Joey! Pretty pour - deep, clear gold with a fluffy white head. Well carbonated, with streams of bubbles rising up to the head. Nice lacing. Mildly sweet nose, lightly malty, shortbread cookie, chalk dust and mild grass. Initially, a nice grassy bite shocks the tongue, but it fades and a lightly spicy grain takes over. More dry than expected, the hops really shine through toward the finish, with light lemon zest joining the grassyness. Pepper peeks through at the very tail end of the clean, dry finish. I enjoyed this very much, an excellent session brew!

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2009 Bottle. Pours pale gold. On the nose you’ll find malt in front of lemon, lime, and citrus hops. The body is thin, but has "backbone". The flavor is perfect for warm weather, or warm fare with soft citrus fruit followed by an array of subdued hop notes. There hasn’t been a New Glarus beer that I haven’t liked, and this is no exception. Fuck you.
