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!

Aroma of subtle lemon, light malt and a hint of corn with floral notes. Golden-yellow in color with a nice white head that thins. Light, honey/bread flavors with noticeable noble-hop flavor that are lightly spicy with some floral, earthy bitterness. There is also a hint of minerals in the finish. Body is medium-light, but the texture is fairly "big" feeling, coating the mouth. The finish sticks with you, with some drying bitterness and a touch of minerals. Interesting, probably the best pilsener I’ve had. Thanks malachi for gifting me a couple bottles!

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

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Poured light color with small white foam head. Flavors of sweet cookies, and a solid mint undertone. The german stylings of this are eveident in all aspects of this brew.

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

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2007
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.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 18, 2007
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.

Poured yellow with small white head. Aroma of light hops and citrus. Nothing really to taste. Very watery with hints of hops and citrus.
