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!

Straw colored with a slight haze and a small , tight head. Aroma of citrus, spice and pale malts. Flavor of crisp grain, citrus and spice with a sweet malt finish. bitter hop and smooth malt finish rounds it out very nicely. Very good.

Thanks to Terminus for picking this one up for me. Pours blonde (duh) with a sudsy white head. The smooth pale malt, some spicy hops, hints of smooth citrus and a touch of cream. Medium / light body with underscored sharp carbonation. The flavor begins just like the aroma with more spice on the finish and some oxidation showing up. This is a good beer that I’d like to get fresh and rerate.

3fourths (8103) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 23, 2008
12oz bottle. Slightly hazy hay lemon colored body. Nice, pleasent, lemon and corn fuel nose, but tempered by some pillowy yeast, giving it almost a cream smell. Sweet wheat, hay, lemon, and rich honey malts all over the mouth, with a semi-sharp bite over the middle and a crisp, sweet lemon and cracker pils malt finish. Very tasty.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Ughsmash. Golden, decent white head and lacing. Herbal and grassy up front. Biscuity, lots of honey. Flavor much the same. Hops could be bigger, (but this is 6-7 months old already), honey character takes over a little bit. Soft, billowy mouthfeel. Well done, probably score another 2-3 points higher with a fresher bottle.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 11, 2008
Tantalizing aroma of dandelions, honey and freshcut grass. Slightly hazy yellow with a nice white head. Crisp and hoppy, this beer delivers a nice zing of hoppiness but has enough malt to make it an honest to goodness exceptional beer. Very creamy mouthfeel. This is an outstanding beer and could turn me on to lagers. It provs that great beers don’t have to be mind-blowers.

Another superb new glarus beer. Lots more great hop flavor than your standard pilsner. Great slight malty flavor as well. Excellent example of the style.

SHANER4 (480) - 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 (6087) - 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.

Tripplebrew (777) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 25, 2007
Poured a definite, clear yellow with a little small head. A bit of hops. Nothing too special about this pilsner.

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.
