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!

Pours a clear golden with a smallish white head. Aroma is grassy and grainy with a hint of lemon. Slightly sweet with more bitterness than I expected.

Poured a definite, clear yellow with a little small head. A bit of hops. Nothing too special about this pilsner.

highibus (733) - Vail, Arizona, USA - DEC 20, 2007
Clean blonde color with creamy thick head. Smells of bright hops and light malt. Nice hop presence for this pilsner. Balanced nicely with a light malt presence. Palate is light. A nice beer for the style. Thanks to Bockyhorsey for this one.

Bottle. Pours a pale yellow with a thin head. Flavor is pale malts, clean hop finish. Soft bodied and rich. New Glarus never disappoints, they take a traditionally boring style and make it into a solid session brew. Delicious!

thanks badgerben! Not as tongue tickeling as the Surly ;0)...spicey and thin, little head and lacing, acidy finish.

buckybeer (666) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 30, 2007
Pours a medium golden with a decent sized white head. Aroma is crisp and refreshing. Light malts, corn, kwheat and light hops. Very clean smelling. Flavor has some real snap to it. The malts get a little bigger. The hops get a little more bitter. Very nice pilsner. Should be a nice summer drinker.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - AUG 28, 2007
Pilsner style aroma with light lemon and hops. Classic pilsner colors with a foamy head. Mild malt and hops flavors, mild bitterness, citrus notes, some hay. Lightly creamy palate, well carbonated and a crisp finish. Balanced towards bitter on the duration, light overall. A good pilsner.

bookman10 (648) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Pours a clear, pale golden yellow. Smallish head. Grassy, floral aromas. Flavor is very typical of a good German pilsner. Flavor is very grassy, with some resinous notes. Very clean finish and mouthfeel. This is a great example of a pilsner--as with most styles Dan takes on, he delivers nothing but a sterling example.
