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!

Thanks to buckybeer for the bottle. Clear golden with a medium to large head. Fair lacing. Aroma was sweet malt with some grassy and floral hops. Fruity sweet taste, reminiscent of apple with a bit of hop spice. Just a hint of a bitter finish. A bit sweet is the only complaint. But a good Summer refresher.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with Brigadier (thanks!). Poured a medium golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of grass, grains, and a trace of citrus. Tastes of grains, and light grass. Starts of lightly sweet and ends in a grassy bitterness.

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!

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 18, 2007
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.

Poured yellow with small white head. Aroma of light hops and citrus. Nothing really to taste. Very watery with hints of hops and citrus.

Pours a clear golden with a smallish white head. Aroma is grassy and grainy with a hint of lemon. Slightly sweet with more bitterness than I expected.

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!

badgerben (4362) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 16, 2007
Clear, likght copper color with a medium head. Quite a hoppy aroma with strong grains. Strong, toasted malt and raw grain flavor. Some unexpected citrus towards the finish. Very interesting.

Light, yellow color. Smell of yeast, some hops, roasted malt, citrus and bread. Taste of lemon, toasted malt, hops, minor alcohol, grass and sugar. Nice summer beer!

Light Amber Color with White Head. Sweet Malty Grains and Light Fruit on the Nose. Carbonated. Light and Creamy Mouthfeel. Sweet Grains and Nice Balanced Bitterness. Bittersweet Lightly Dry Ending. Subtle Citrus Notes Poke Througout.. Very Well Made Pilsener.. The Rare Beer That Every Man Could Sit at the Bar and Enjoy.
