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!

not really to my liking. Pale yellow without any real lasting head. no real flavor to speak of except for an odd aftertaste that I can really put my finger on

backdaft (227) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow. Thin white head with some delicate lacing. Aroma is almost nonexistent; maybe some grassy notes. Flavor is light bready malts balanced well with hops. Not too bitter or overpowering. Well carbonated with a crisp spicy finish.

o_Merlin_o (191) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 13, 2014
A large, off-white head with fair lacing. Aromas of bubble gum and vanilla (pleasant). A rather light body, with a creamy texture. Moderate sweetness.

37steel (186) - St. Charles, Illinois, USA - SEP 27, 2007
Bottle. Nice clear yellow with a thin head. Much stronger hop aroma than expected with the color. Well balanced malt flavor with a strong bitter finish. Another good beer from New Glarus.

truebluehes (173) - Tipton, Iowa, USA - MAY 31, 2007
Bottle. One of the better pilsners I’ve had. Very smooth and drinkable. Good summer brew. A touch more robust than most pilsners.

orville (160) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 17, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2007 This is balls to the wall pilsner; if you can’t take it than switcth to smirnoff ice! Bitter and full flavored session pils; acidity, hops, hops, malt, hops, and refreshment. A great beer for the summer. This is Wisconsin baby and you bettta recognize game.

Bigsky66 (148) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2008
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.

GuinnessHong (147) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2012
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 there’s actually some malty substance to this that sets it apart from lesser specimens.

BeerInHeaven (138) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 16, 2012
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!
