3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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!

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours golden with white head. Nose has biscuits, aromatic floral notes of noble hops. Soft carbonation and some mineral texture in the palate. Very clean and balanced flavor profile - breadiness, light herbal notes, just a touch of bitterness in the finish. Excellent German-style pilsner - perhaps the best US rendition I’ve had.
