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 thatís no surprise in Wisconsin. Enjoy!

Pilsner style aroma with light lemon and hops. Classic pilsner colors with a foamy head. Mild malt and hops flavors, mild bitterness, citrus notes, some hay. Lightly creamy palate, well carbonated and a crisp finish. Balanced towards bitter on the duration, light overall. A good pilsner.

The description on the bottle describes this as a German style Pilsener, but it gets the generic categorization on the site. All of which matters little, since this has nothing to do with the Pilsener style, drinkable though it be. In the glass itís golden, nicely carbonated, and has a mediocre head. The aroma is bready malts with a drop of honey, but no sign of the requisite hoppy bitterness. Thereís a mild grassy/floral bite to the flavor, but not enough to classify this as a Pils. Okay, I sípoze, but not what Iíd expected.

Pours a clear golden color with a slightly orange hue; frothy white head that retains well and leaves good lacing. Smell is of faint grass, spicy hops, and I get a little lemon and honey in there as well. Biscuity upfront, hints of honeycomb, hops are slightly spicy, but not overdone, a nice lemon zest too. Both body and carbonation are probably around medium levels, but very soft and refreshing on the tongue, quenching your thirst, but encouraging you to take another. Excellent beer; I plan on drinking copious amounts of this over the summer. Updated on July 17, 2007. Original smell was 4.5, taste was 5. Having had this plenty of times, I still rather enjoy it, but prefer Yokel or Edel-Pils to this one.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 12, 2007
Pours a very clear gold. Aroma is a little hoppy with some hints of wheat. The taste is very clean and crisp with slight hoppiness and a moderate malty finish. Nothing jumps out at me. Not as good as I was expecting.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - AUG 11, 2007
Pours golden with a moderate, light head. Aroma is lightly hoppy, some wheat. Mouthfeel is pretty heavy for this style. Nice change of pace. Flavor is somewhat sweet, wheaty, with a light hop bite.

poured into tulip. pours a clear sparkling golden yellow with moderate white head. light gold, fresh crisp aroma of slight hops. light crisp taste, true to the style in its crispness, dry finish. good light and classic, with maybe a very subtle hop bitterness in finish.
