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!

Dogbrick (8881) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Sample at GABF 10/04/2014, thanks to my BIL for assistance with note-taking. Clear golden color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily. Strings of lace. Aroma of grassy hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, toasted malt and fruit. The finish is mildly bitter with a grassy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

On tap at the brewery. Comes a clear light gold with a nice white head. Aroma of malt, grass, and spice. Taste is malt, grass, citrus, spice, and yeast. Very nice.

Bottle shared by beerman6686. Pours a clean clear straight yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma of grassy hops, grape skins, hay. Taste is light sweetness with a crisp finish. One of the best pilseners I have ever had. Awesome stuff.

Awktoberfest (322) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - OCT 10, 2014
A nice light pilsner with flavor. Not as easy to drink as spotted cow. Not as memorable as moon man but another solid NG beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stine (1641) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Clean gold pour. Lemon curd and preserved lemon nose. Highly acidic and inlaid with tarragon and wondrous minerals. Biscuit malt and white crackers compose the clean flavor; tangerine and citrus zest outline prescient hop tones. Classic palate that manages crisp texture and soft intangibles together. An excellent example, though name recognition and reputation is certainly involved here.

asedzie (630) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours golden with white head. Nose has biscuits, aromatic floral notes of noble hops. Soft carbonation and some mineral texture in the palate. Very clean and balanced flavor profile - breadiness, light herbal notes, just a touch of bitterness in the finish. Excellent German-style pilsner - perhaps the best US rendition I’ve had.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, lemon, some grass, spice, ncie vanilla, earthy tones in there. Taste is a mix of grassy, earthy, doughy yeast, some bread, biscuit, vanilla, touch of herbs, finishing bitter, dry. Tasty and chuggable, NGs specialty.

Bacterial (1826) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Sample pour at the Great Taste of the Midwest. Served out of a cool looking upright barrel cask thing by Dan Cary himself. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Nice crisp old school hop profile. Refreshing!
