3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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!
