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!

Wasn’t expecting the hoppiness from the first initial smell of this one. Beautiful golden hue and light head on this one. Definatley would recommend this one to anyone looking for a tasty pilsener.

Well hopped pilsner, a bit citric. A good session (or Packer game)brew.

Looking at the bubbles on the head from below looks really cool on this beer. Nice golden color with a thick, long lasting head. Citrus aroma, and not a whole lot of taste. A little lemony, but thats about it.

Arriving too late to sample the Red, I tried this. Whatever.

An attractively dry hoppy pilsener. Solid malt stand up to the firm hopping, but is not thick and cloying. A high quality summer quaffer.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2003 A great beer, from a great brewery, which is from a great american city. Good carbonation, with flavor that was mostly sweet and hop like. Damn near fine brew from my guys in lill switzerland.

JMerritt (1745) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2002
Very sweet, fruity and floral aroma. Golden in color with a nice frothy tan head. Carbonation is medium/high. Initial flavor is somewhat sweet with a closely following hop bitterness. Aftertaste is dry with a pleasantly lingering hop presence.

Terminus (3148) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - APR 19, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2012 not good-this should have been better-very bitter and thats in a bad way. Very yellow miller look-i would pick Goose Island Summertime over this anyday-New Glarus is a great company, but this is definately not a signature beer for them RERATE NOV 2012-Its been over 10 yrs since i have had this beer and wow, have my tastes improved. This is a fantastic pils! pours lite crystal clear orange with effervescent carbonation with a big bubble white whispy head. nose is spicy noble hops, cracker like malts, a bit of barn/farmhouse note, grassy-everything you want in a pils! Flavors of big bitter spicy. grassy hops, nice pale cereal/cracker malts. Finish is very long-lots of bitterness for a pils with crisp carbonation lively palate. This is a fine example of the style! perfect marriage of crisp spicy hops and fine pils malt. beautiful!

A very good german pilsner. Nice sharp hops with the malt to back it up. A seasonal which is brewed whenever the brewery has time. The hops this time are a little more asserative then their last effort a few years ago.
