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!

sherm1016 (1177) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 10, 2012
12oz bottle, 2012 release, purchased at the Hilltop Brewery in New Glarus. Pours a crystal clear, bright yellow color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is malt, bread, some grassy hops. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is bitter, hoppy, pine, grass, cereal, bread, a little nutty maybe, with a light bitter finish. A very tasty pilsner. I will probably drink quite a few of these this fall.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 7, 2009
Pours yellow with a white head. Smells of dry malt, noble hops (spicy, sage, earth). Tastes initially sweet with a nicely balanced hoppiness on the finish.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2009
Bottle thanks to Skyview. Lightly hazy yellow-orange with a smooth white head, very herbal spicy hop note some earthy sweet hay malts in the aroma. Taste is peppery malty, too much like a Helles, warm hay, grassy hops, not that refreshing.

jmikolich (1477) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2008
12oz bottle, brought in by some folks, taste is surprising for a pilsener with some age on it, still bright and bubbly with big white head.. malty and crisp, not bad at all. good change from Oktoberfests.

Hazy apricot with a minimal head, decent hazing. Crisp and refreshing beer. Grassy hops, light malt, dry finish. Pretty well balanced brew.

unclemattie (4262) - Georgia, USA - APR 17, 2008
12oz bottle. Clear yellow color. Aroma of spicy, grassy hops. Flavor is of light malt, quickly followed by big hop bitterness. Lots of hops is what we like. Overall this beer has a great Pilsner character with a nice Saaz spiciness.

Goodgrief (1811) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Oct. 2007 - Darker than your typical pils, golden brown with decent head and lacing. Aroma was seriously grassy. Flavor was strong grassy hops, some sweet pilsner malt, lots of carbonation to make this a solid brew. Thanks to eaglefan538 for sharing.
