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!

Straw colored with a slight haze and a small , tight head. Aroma of citrus, spice and pale malts. Flavor of crisp grain, citrus and spice with a sweet malt finish. bitter hop and smooth malt finish rounds it out very nicely. Very good.

Above average pilsner. Faint spice notes and fruit. Well balanced but tame. Not as good as Capitol’s or Victory’s.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - AUG 11, 2007
Pours golden with a moderate, light head. Aroma is lightly hoppy, some wheat. Mouthfeel is pretty heavy for this style. Nice change of pace. Flavor is somewhat sweet, wheaty, with a light hop bite.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2007
Bottle. Pours a light golden color with a medium size white head. Aroma of hops and malt with a slight hint of lemon. Taste is very mellow and crisp. It has a bit of bitter grassy hop flavor but not overwhelming by any means. A good pilsner that finshes nicely and true to the style.

Golden straw color, medium dense, lasting head. Beautiful! Assertive herbal hop aromas. Juicy malts, nicely balanced. I’m not a pils fan, but this stuff is really good. Not as Saaz heavy as other hoppy pilseners.

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

12oz. Bottle $6.49 6-Pack Roy’s Market New Glarus Home Town Blonde is one impressive looking beer. Absolutely glows like a gold bar with plenty of large carbonation bubbles rising to the 3 finger white heaed that formed on the pour. The head eventually fades to a half finger cap that leaves decent lacing. If the lacing was slightly better this beer would get a perfect rating. Extremely refreshing aromas come from this beer. There’s a very light pale base that has a touch of caramel mixed in there. The showcase is the use of hops. According to the bottle 4 varities were used. A very refreshing light grassy hop aroma hits the nose first but is quickly followed by a couple squeezes of lemon juice. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again "very refreshing". Much like the aroma biscuity malts start things off and always float around in the background but the showcase is hops. Grassy hops show up almost immediately and give a pleasant mild bitterness mid palate. The citrus (lemon) shows itself toward the end and goes nicely hand in hand with the grassiness. Finishes mostly grassy but as I sit the lemon tartness comes around again. Probably my favorite all time Pilsner. Mouthfeel is medium light and airy toward the back of the tongue. Mild bitterness along the sides and back of tongue that lingers and make this beer so enjoyable. Fantastic drinkability! This is a non-stop all day long drinker. My favorite pilsner and one of my new favorite summer quaffs. In my opinion this should be a year round offering. I never thought I would rate a pilsner this high but this beer is so good and refreshing for style it deserves every bit of praise it will ever recieve.

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.

Really solid pils. Good hops, very refined. I still prefer a good ale, but this is delicious and refreshing.
