2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Looking at the bubbles on the head from below looks really cool on this beer. Nice golden color with a thick, long lasting head. Citrus aroma, and not a whole lot of taste. A little lemony, but thats about it.

Pours a clear light golden color with a finger sized head of pure white foam. Nose is hoppy. Very creamy on the palate, the taste is of bread, grain and hops. Most notable for its creaminess, this blond pilsner can be paired with deli sandwiches, snacks or light cheeses.

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!

12oz bottle - Poured slightly hazy straw color with small head. Has a wheat beer taste with some spice. My brother bought me a 12 pac of New Glarus for Christmas and had 4 different varieties of brew. This one is probably the best. A light beer and very easy to drink. Could hardly taste any hops.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a rocky white head that lingers and laces well. Pure clear gold in the glass. Nice crisp nose of spice (Saaz)but not assertively so. Sips spicy with notes of citrus and perfectly balanced with malt. I like this better than the Edel-Pils, because it is less dry and highly quaffable. Great German pils (but may lean to a helles in body).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale golden body with a thick, clinging white head. The aroma is light but inviting. Biscuit, hops, and spice. Smooth mouthfeel with nice carbonation towards the end. Flavor is good if not exciting. Semi-sweet up front with cracker and biscuit notes. It finishes with a decent hoppy bite. Another good beer from New Glarus.

Fresh bottle from the Brewery before it hit store shelves. I am glad to have tried this one as I missed out on the old style. Not my go to style of beer but light and refreshing. Would have liked to have this during the heat wave, but still not too bad.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I’m not sure why I don’t like this beer. All the ingredients are there for a great brew to be loved by me, but I think it’s 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.
