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!

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 (8549) - 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 (7353) - 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!

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.

BBB63 (6426) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Bottle and served in a NG pint glass: Clean golden hue with a nice lasting frothy lead and very good lace. The aroma has notes of classic herbal and grassy hops (the Saaz shines) with pale biscuity malt, hint of apple, faint chalky yeast esters. The taste is mildly fruity and soft grains at the beginning with some light handed bitter to follow. Grassy and herbal character is dominate throughout and leads to high quality old world enjoyment. The mouth feel is sprite and refreshing with a nicely done dry attenuated finish. A winner for the genre, one the best American made Pils I have had. Try one out for an easy session beer.

Pours yellow with a white head. Smells of dry malt, noble hops (spicy, sage, earth). Tastes initially sweet with a nicely balanced hoppiness on the finish.
