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!

12 oz bottle. Clear, sparkling gold with a small, oat-colored, puff of head. Doughy nose with lemon. Medium body but full for a pilsener. Begins with some coppery tang then dough, apple and lemon pith. Pleasant bready drying with hints of orange peel.

hopscotch (9171) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Bottle… Brilliant, clear yellow lager with a small, soapy, white head and good retention. The subtle aroma is of spicy, peppery hops with whispers of pilsner malt, lemon peel and acetaldehyde. Crisp, acerbic, hop flavor with moderate to medium bitterness. Medium-bodied and oily with lively carbonation. Short, metallic, abrasive finish.

Poured a real blonde with an aroma of flowery hops and some maltiness, maybe butterscotch notes. Taste is full of bitter hops with some clove accents and grass. Left a hoppy, bitter aftertaste, a very good representation of the style.

A bit hoppier than expected but reasonably full bodied. Well crafted carbonation with slightly bitter finish

MIBRomeo (2559) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 16, 2007
Pour is a light off golden color w/ a crips thick white head and some nice lacing. Aroma is clearly hoppy more so than I expected thinking I was getting a blonde. Palate is smooth but not big, full but not thick.. if that makes any sence. Flavor is well hopped some floral and grassy notes w/ a good amount of grain and not much sweetness. Fairly bitter. A great beer for the sytle.

Aroma is that wonderful European toasty pale malt, like a fresh bottle of Czechvar, taste is the same toasted malt, with much more spicey hop and zing then your European pilsners. Name is confusing,makes you think your getting a blonde style brew,should be Hometown Pils

LongShotRX (15) - Barronett, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2007
This Pilsner seemed to me a bit more like a pale ale than any thing else. Its the most aggressivley hopped pils I have come across. There is little malt to be found in the taste because the hops dominate the flavor. Very bitter finish. I heard so many good things about this beer that I ordered a case without so much as trying it. Now, the case is gone and I am left with the opinion that my search for the perfect pils goes on.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of Bockyhorsey - Pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a one finger thick off white head. Spotty lacing. Aroma is spicey, herbal hops and light grain. Flavor is lightly sweetened malt with a nice hop bitterness. Medium body. A very nice lager. Thanks Bill and Wendy.

Pours crystal clear light golden with a lingering head. Nice spicey hop aroma and flavor. All americans who think they know what a pilsener is, need to try the real thing!!
