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 thatís no surprise in Wisconsin. Enjoy!

Bottle thanks to Badbeer poured a clear gold color with a nice white head. Aroma was pilsner malt with a touch of honey and hops. The flavor was clean and smooth with a decent hop bitterness. Taste was more of an ale than a lager so im not sure what it really is.

Itís been a while since Iíve rated but Iíve got three weeks to gorge in Wisconsin so here goes. Ar. Honey, grassy hops aroma. Ap. slightly foggy, not crystal clear by any means. Small head dissipates quickly. T. Lightly sweet bready, biscuit and moderate bitterness on finish. P. lightish sparkly body. Nice. Rally really nice pilsner.

A good pilsner. Pale golden color, largish head. Smells malty, tastes of spicy hops. An example of the style.

Pours slightly hazy gold. Slight white head. Aroma is grassy hops. Slightly heavier body than i expected. Its got a pilsner taste on the malt side, and a decent hop bite of pine, and a little bit of citrus. Very crisp and refreshing. Pretty good session beer.

dekester1 (309) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Poured a nice mid-gold with a fine bubbled foamy head. Aroma was of malts with a fruity twinge. Taste was malty and light upfront and then went into a sour/bitter finish. Palate was decent. Overall, this taste more like a pilsner than a true íblondeí but it was OK.

Wasnít expecting the hoppiness from the first initial smell of this one. Beautiful golden hue and light head on this one. Definatley would recommend this one to anyone looking for a tasty pilsener.

not really to my liking. Pale yellow without any real lasting head. no real flavor to speak of except for an odd aftertaste that I can really put my finger on

backdaft (200) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow. Thin white head with some delicate lacing. Aroma is almost nonexistent; maybe some grassy notes. Flavor is light bready malts balanced well with hops. Not too bitter or overpowering. Well carbonated with a crisp spicy finish.

37steel (186) - St. Charles, Illinois, USA - SEP 27, 2007
Bottle. Nice clear yellow with a thin head. Much stronger hop aroma than expected with the color. Well balanced malt flavor with a strong bitter finish. Another good beer from New Glarus.

Bottle. One of the better pilsners Iíve had. Very smooth and drinkable. Good summer brew. A touch more robust than most pilsners.
