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!

355mL thanks to nuplastikk. Pours low carbonation clear golden. Denser white head. Soapy lacing. Nose is raw grain, honey, grassy hops, clean malty lager. Taste is snappy, crackery, honey, grassy. Sweeter, clean malty. Very soft and classic malt showcase. Very delicious session lager. Palate is amazing- quenching, soft, dense for the style. Loves ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, lemon, some grass, spice, ncie vanilla, earthy tones in there. Taste is a mix of grassy, earthy, doughy yeast, some bread, biscuit, vanilla, touch of herbs, finishing bitter, dry. Tasty and chuggable, NGs specialty.

3fourths (8878) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 23, 2008
12oz bottle. Slightly hazy hay lemon colored body. Nice, pleasent, lemon and corn fuel nose, but tempered by some pillowy yeast, giving it almost a cream smell. Sweet wheat, hay, lemon, and rich honey malts all over the mouth, with a semi-sharp bite over the middle and a crisp, sweet lemon and cracker pils malt finish. Very tasty.

Big thanks to jarlbartar for bonusing me this tasty brew. 12oz bottle pours clear golden with white head. The aroma is crisp and lively with mild lemon, hints of hop spice and floral hops as well as sugary pale malts and hints of wheat. As it warms the faint hop aromas grow to more than a murmur. The taste starts sweet and malty and quickly turn into crisp a lemon twang (not all that tart or sour), hop spice and floral hops. Just like in the nose. The hop flavor seems to grow into the finish with a nice lingering floral hop sense and carries into the finish.

Ughsmash (7465) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Bottled, April 2007 release. Poured a clear bright golden with a long-lasting rocky beige head. Aroma was quite pleasant with cereal, floral, and a faint hint of lemon zest representin’. Flavor found about the same stuff.. a crisp cereal and honey base with mild floral and citrus bitter accents. Crisp and lighter-bodied, and full of flavor.. left a somewhat sweet and very refreshing finish.. Great stuff!

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 4, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2012 Rerate 9 years later: Pours an effervescent medium golden with a puffy white head. Has a fresh clean noble hoppy aroma with some light malty sweetness Flavor is smooth and somewhat robust for a pilsener, mostly dominated by hops, but some malt is noticeable. Very true to style and quite drinkable.

12-oz. Thank you, MrFacto! Pours a crystal clear light amber or dark straw with a thin film of white atop. Sour vegetal DMS happening on the nose...I seem to be a magnet for this this evening. Fizzy, medium attack. Crackery, yeasty mid-palate. Sourish finish. Pretty surprised this is an NG beer.

TheAlum (6650) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2012
12 oz bottle from the Hilltop Brewery (New Glarus, WI). Glad to see this back around as the last time it was out, I was fresher into beer. Pours a richer golden hue, just a kiss of haze, darker golden pour stark glow throughout is pretty. Well carbonted with a cakey loose offwhite head, stays as a small layer, laces small. Lively carbonated, good colors. Aromas are a bit spicy, mellow dry straw and bready malts, grainy dryness, some mellow earthy hops are moderate in strength. Spicy earthy hops give some nice peppery play on the nose. Florals, grass, gentle Pils malts and yeast. Initial is light bodied, clean and dry up front, mellow bready and straw flavors, some crackers, gentle cereal malts. Crisp, clean with touches of fruit as we move into the middle. Gentle apple, a touch of lemon, as the backend cleans up for. Decent to medium dryness, earthy hops. Grass, gentle yet inviting spicy earthy hops into the backend. Nice dryness, crisp cereal and clean qualities. Light overall, quite a summer drinker with some ok hop character, spice, clean malt profile. This beer has "Drewbeerme" written all over it. Really nice fresh summer drinker, clean and light. Pretty glow, lively carbonation and a head that really lingers. Nice.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle:   Bright straw yet hazy, small to moderate white frothy head, spotty lacing.   Clean straw/hay on the nose.   A little grassy.   Much the same on the tongue.   Light dryness.   Very smooth and clean, albeit very light too.   I suppose that’s to be expected.   If this is a spring seasonal, its amazing how well it held up.   Tastes fresh.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   A little wheaty profile on the exit, lingering straw and hay.   Touch of sweetness too.   Very simple, clean, and well made.   Thanks Bob!
