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!

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.

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

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.

truebluehes (189) - 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

felsenpils (144) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 23, 2012
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 Adam´s 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.
