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!

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.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle: † Bright straw yet hazy, small to moderate white frothy head, spotty lacing. † Clean straw/hay on the nose. † A little grassy. † Much the same on the tongue. † Light dryness. † Very smooth and clean, albeit very light too. † I suppose thatís to be expected. † If this is a spring seasonal, its amazing how well it held up. † Tastes fresh. † Body and mouthfeel are moderate. † A little wheaty profile on the exit, lingering straw and hay. † Touch of sweetness too. † Very simple, clean, and well made. † Thanks Bob!

HogTownHarry (6267) - 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.

Bottle, thanks to shrubber85, golden yellow in color, hazy soap ring foam, fruity nose, flavor of bubblegum, bready yeast, cocktail syrup, good 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.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2007
The description on the bottle describes this as a German style Pilsener, but it gets the generic categorization on the site. All of which matters little, since this has nothing to do with the Pilsener style, drinkable though it be. In the glass itís golden, nicely carbonated, and has a mediocre head. The aroma is bready malts with a drop of honey, but no sign of the requisite hoppy bitterness. Thereís a mild grassy/floral bite to the flavor, but not enough to classify this as a Pils. Okay, I sípoze, but not what Iíd expected.

RBSG 07 Minneapolis Grand Tasting: Pale yellow, light head and lacing. Nose of skunky hops and salty malt. The flavor is malty, husky, some malts. Clean, balanced. Ok.

beerguy101 (5338) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 13, 2007
This pale lager pours a yellow gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity and sweet. A medium bodied pale lager. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are floral and spicy. It has the pale lager crispness and sweet, but lacks that adjunct flavors so common in most of these beer. Its light and crisp, yet it has a whole lot of flavor. Nice beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and spicy

Skyview (5310) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Picked up single 12-oz bottle from Bob McFarland Liquors in McFarland, WI. Pours a clear golden pale blonde brew with a thin and fast dissolving white head. Aroma of muti-grain breakfast cereal, grassy hops, with a touch of honey. Taste is very high carbonated, light bodied with flavors of light multi-grain and some light peppery spice. Finish is a moderate hop bitter aftertaste that quickly disappears.
