Bottle from Iowaherkeye. Spicy and biscuity aroma, with a rich, toasty flavor that is dry and brisk. Body and carbonation are absolutely perfect, and this beer is monumentally drinkable. Well done!

Golden straw color, medium dense, lasting head. Beautiful! Assertive herbal hop aromas. Juicy malts, nicely balanced. I’m not a pils fan, but this stuff is really good. Not as Saaz heavy as other hoppy pilseners.

6/17/2007: New Glarus Hometown Blonde pours beautifully into my Warsteiner Pilsner glass. The beer has a clean, golden blonde color and a large, thick, and extremly pale yellow head. The head is lasting and leaves some dense, foamy lacing on the glass. There is also a generous amount of lively carbonation. The aroma is pale malt, slightly sweet, and has some lightly spicy and grassy hops. The flavor is crisp and clean with a welcoming bready maltiness followed by a good amount of spicy, grassy, floral, and lightly citrus hop bitterness. The body is medium which is probably a bit heavier than most traditional Pilsners, but it works really well with this beer providing a smooth, near creamy texture. Overall this is an impressive Pils that I could drink one after another all day long and enjoy from begining to end!
12 oz bottle from buckybeer. Thanks Mark!
