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!

This Pilsner seemed to me a bit more like a pale ale than any thing else. Its the most aggressivley hopped pils I have come across. There is little malt to be found in the taste because the hops dominate the flavor. Very bitter finish. I heard so many good things about this beer that I ordered a case without so much as trying it. Now, the case is gone and I am left with the opinion that my search for the perfect pils goes on.

Bottle. Surprised at how light and airy the taste was at first with a quite hoppy aroma. Very smooth with a light, almost sweet aftertaste. More flavorful than Spotted Cow, yet lighter.

Opened a 12 oz. bottle and poured into the proper pilsener glass. Upon bringing the glass to my nose, this pilsener noticeably bursts with noble hop aroma, and holds a fluffy, foamy, white head with a golden appearance. Unlike Two Women lager, this pilsener’s taste is not as acidic, and has a sweeter body and taste; a bit more towards the German style pilsener, but not as sweet as a traditional munich helles. I assume this is due to the mash water ph. In addition to the slightly sweet body, this pilsener has a quite spicy and complex hop bitterness that lingers on the palate. Don’t expect some big, palate abusing beer in Hometown Blonde. However, for the style, New Glarus hit the nail on the head like always.

12 oz bottle - pours lemon yellow. Thin head, aroma lemon and hops. Nice full body - good balance, nice use of hops. Another winner from New Glarus.
