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!

BBB63 (6526) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Bottle and served in a NG pint glass: Clean golden hue with a nice lasting frothy lead and very good lace. The aroma has notes of classic herbal and grassy hops (the Saaz shines) with pale biscuity malt, hint of apple, faint chalky yeast esters. The taste is mildly fruity and soft grains at the beginning with some light handed bitter to follow. Grassy and herbal character is dominate throughout and leads to high quality old world enjoyment. The mouth feel is sprite and refreshing with a nicely done dry attenuated finish. A winner for the genre, one the best American made Pils I have had. Try one out for an easy session beer.

HogTownHarry (6374) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2007
Bottle (12oz). Pours bright pure clear gold, decent quick-diminishing white head, some lacing. Smells like a nice, fresh, grassy pils - good moderately cereal grain body. Simple, soft and fresh pils flavour - light grain, some honey sweetness, soft grassy/floral hops in the lengthy lightly bitter finish. Decent body, good astringency (soft, soft), mild but adequate life, not an insistent flavour but itís not shy - or a lawnmower beer. Just another solid beer from a brewery that usually "gets" it.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 7, 2009
Pours yellow with a white head. Smells of dry malt, noble hops (spicy, sage, earth). Tastes initially sweet with a nicely balanced hoppiness on the finish.

Bottle: The aroma consists of light lemon, honey, bread, and grass. It pours a transparent gold with a small soapy white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of honey and lemon. The finish has light-moderate hay, grass, floral notes, and light lemon peel. Itís light bodied with moderate carbonation.

Boutip (5737) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2007
Bottle courtesy from Monger: Poured a bright gold yellow color beer with a nice big pure white foamy head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma of floral malt with some dry crisp hops is quite enjoyable. Taste is also dominated by some floral malt with some light sweet notes and a medium dry crisp finish which is quite enjoyable. Body is full for the style with some good carbonation. Another very good beer from a great brewer from a style that produce too much crap IMO.

12oz bottle. Pale yellow tan body, highly filtered and transparent. Steady thin white head. Classic Pils taste, respectably hopped..a touch flowery, peppery. Straightforward clean malt body. Very well balanced, with a dry finish. Classic noble hop flavors. Really quite well done.
