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!

hopscotch (9057) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Bottle… Brilliant, clear yellow lager with a small, soapy, white head and good retention. The subtle aroma is of spicy, peppery hops with whispers of pilsner malt, lemon peel and acetaldehyde. Crisp, acerbic, hop flavor with moderate to medium bitterness. Medium-bodied and oily with lively carbonation. Short, metallic, abrasive finish.

Bottle @ Brad’s house Minneapolis. Pours a bit hazy golden appearance with an off white head. Pours a fairly herbal, grassy, moderately floral hoppy, a touch fruity aroma. Somewhat bitter, earthy hoppy, moderately floral, straw flavor with a moderately dry finish. Not too hard to drink.

355mL thanks to nuplastikk. Pours low carbonation clear golden. Denser white head. Soapy lacing. Nose is raw grain, honey, grassy hops, clean malty lager. Taste is snappy, crackery, honey, grassy. Sweeter, clean malty. Very soft and classic malt showcase. Very delicious session lager. Palate is amazing- quenching, soft, dense for the style. Loves ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3fourths (7976) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 23, 2008
12oz bottle. Slightly hazy hay lemon colored body. Nice, pleasent, lemon and corn fuel nose, but tempered by some pillowy yeast, giving it almost a cream smell. Sweet wheat, hay, lemon, and rich honey malts all over the mouth, with a semi-sharp bite over the middle and a crisp, sweet lemon and cracker pils malt finish. Very tasty.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2014 A great little pilsener. The hop selection is a bit more experimental but it is great.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 4, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2012 Rerate 9 years later: Pours an effervescent medium golden with a puffy white head. Has a fresh clean noble hoppy aroma with some light malty sweetness Flavor is smooth and somewhat robust for a pilsener, mostly dominated by hops, but some malt is noticeable. Very true to style and quite drinkable.
