3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours a pale yellow with a small head, some lace. The aroma is malty and floral. Strong malt backbone, fruity, almost like rose water, and bittered to balance. The body is nice and rich. Overall, not my favorite, but still pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pour is a light golden color with a crisp thick white head and some nice lacing. Aroma is clearly hoppy, grainy, some toast. Flavor is well hopped some floral and grassy notes with a fair amount of grain and not much sweetness. Palate is medium to light bodied, medium carbonation finishes slightly sweet at first then bitter. A great beer for the sytle. Great beer to ween folks from macro swill.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very clear gold. Aroma is a little hoppy with some hints of wheat. The taste is very clean and crisp with slight hoppiness and a moderate malty finish. Nothing jumps out at me. Not as good as I was expecting.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle served in a COAST brewing curved pint. Split with the fiancee.
A: Pours a solid gold color with a pure white head forming on pour. It recedes slowly to a thick cap with tons of sticky lace.
S: Sticky German hops with that specific spicy bite. Pale malts with a little bit of mineral-like qualities to it.
T: Typical German hop profile, slightly gluey with pale cracker malt and some wheat like qualities. Lightly spiced hop quality as well.
M: Light bodied with a medium high carbonation level. Slightly sweet finish.
O: Pretty typical German style lager. The hops are the star which is standard for the style. Nothing mind blowing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Home Town Blonde is the newest addition to the New Glarus family debuting in the late summer of 2012. As of now it is listed as a limited production, but perhaps with gaining popularity, we will see it again in 2013.
It pours a clear light amber color with bubbly head giving off that great, authentic pilsner taste. The scent is rather mild with the use of 4 different hops. Overall, it is a very inviting aroma.
Upon my first sip, I could not have guessed I was drinking a pilsner made in Wisconsin and not from Germany. The taste is light, refreshing and slightly fruity. The ingredients compliment each other so well it is difficult to pick out specific ingredients. Finishes with and ever so slight crisp and bitter after taste.
There is nothing better than waking up and finding out there is a new New Glarus beer on the market. This is a great, unique add to their already stellar line up of brews. I’m sure not many will find this to be their new favorite, but it is a nice transition from Totally Naked to Home Town Blonde. In the German tradition, here’s Prost!
