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!

Pours a clear golden color with a slightly orange hue; frothy white head that retains well and leaves good lacing. Smell is of faint grass, spicy hops, and I get a little lemon and honey in there as well. Biscuity upfront, hints of honeycomb, hops are slightly spicy, but not overdone, a nice lemon zest too. Both body and carbonation are probably around medium levels, but very soft and refreshing on the tongue, quenching your thirst, but encouraging you to take another. Excellent beer; I plan on drinking copious amounts of this over the summer. Updated on July 17, 2007. Original smell was 4.5, taste was 5. Having had this plenty of times, I still rather enjoy it, but prefer Yokel or Edel-Pils to this one.

Iím not sure why I donít like this beer. All the ingredients are there for a great brew to be loved by me, but I think itís a little acidy, and there was something not quite right about the mouth-feel of the beer. Not the best beer from a pretty good brewery. From a bottle.

Herbal hop aroma. Pours a transparent straw color with a quickly dissipating bright white head.mouthfeel is medium to thin but very quenching. Very nice clean bitter hop kick in the finish.

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.

Bottle traded by kalthaus223, cheers! Pours a clear pale chardonnay color with very small head that fades to a ring of white bubbles. Aroma is awesome fresh pils: lightly toasted grain, dough, citrus peel, earthy/spicy/grassy hops, biscuity malt, soft rose petals, sweet honey. Taste is gulpable pale doughy malts and faint orange juice with a little lemon-lime character, honey, and earthy hops. Medium carbonation. My glass is emptying quickly. In the vein of great American pilsners like Prima but softer and sweeter. Very tasty.

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.

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 (325) - 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.

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