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!

Smells friuty and the head on this tap beer is very frothy. Tastes very bold and the hops are nice. The friutness adds to the complexity of this beer. Had at the Hoover Ave Ale House.

Dark, clear golden, with very generous head. Aromas of straw, pine, hops. Fresh, crisp, clean taste. Very mild bitterness, with slight astringent taste. Some spice & herbs also present.

Lighter beers rarely leave me wanting more but this one did. The key grass and corn flavors are there but thereís actually some malty substance to this that sets it apart from lesser specimens.

I have praised Dan and Deb for bringing this back to our open mouths ! The taste is malty with an assertive bitternes (flavor and aroma) not as dry as some dort style lagers, but better balanced. Flavor is perfect and this is what my great grandfather would have loved after pushing the manual lawnmower around. I wish and can hope that they make this a year round beer !!!! PS this is also Danís favorite beer to brew (as told by Deb) Cheers !

pours a classic gold with a nice lacy head. aroma is slightly skunky, but in a good way. taste and finish meld together with a nice lingering hoppiness in the sinuses. Nice!

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2012 Bottle. A seasonal brew. This is my favorite of the New Glarus beers. It is a decent pilsener, but the color is too dark due to the use of caramel malts which do not belong here and the aroma and flavor of hops is too strong. This is not an "old world style pilsner" as it says in the description, rather an American micro-pils, along the lines of Samuel Adamīs nobel pils. The hops taste "green" because of dry hopping which you would never find in a German pils. New Glarus has all the tools to make really great beer, but never gets there.

Poured a real blonde with an aroma of flowery hops and some maltiness, maybe butterscotch notes. Taste is full of bitter hops with some clove accents and grass. Left a hoppy, bitter aftertaste, a very good representation of the style.

Aroma: boozy grain and bread crust, the ubiquitous brewery smell; Appearance: donít all pilsners look great and refreshing? Nice medium-thick head on pour, and a crisp, clear, bubbly yellow; Taste: a lot more hops than you can pick out in the aromatic boquet, something reminiscent of clover/grass; Palate: very refreshing and drinkable, maybe a little bit heavier than most pilsners, subtle sweetness lingers on the palate; Overall: a good pilsner, but, even though Iíve given it a high score, I probably wonít be able to remember very much about it once Iím through the 6-pack

I'm not a big fan of pilsners. But this is the best I've had. It poured out a bright blonde with a 1.5 inch head that took a minute to go down. Nice lacing. It had a very smooth taste that was also easy on the palate. Nice fruity and citrus undertones make this a very good beer.
