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!

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.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2014 Aroma is mild grain sweetness, fruit and very malty. The flavor is malts, citrus, a hint of spice/heat and a very crisp and medium hoppy finish.

Thanks to Terminus for picking this one up for me. Pours blonde (duh) with a sudsy white head. The smooth pale malt, some spicy hops, hints of smooth citrus and a touch of cream. Medium / light body with underscored sharp carbonation. The flavor begins just like the aroma with more spice on the finish and some oxidation showing up. This is a good beer that Iíd like to get fresh and rerate.

Skyview (5464) - 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.

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.

JPDIPSO (5450) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 2, 2002
A very good german pilsner. Nice sharp hops with the malt to back it up. A seasonal which is brewed whenever the brewery has time. The hops this time are a little more asserative then their last effort a few years ago.

beerguy101 (5354) - 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

kaser (5313) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2015
Poured from 12oz bottle at home. Bright yellow and clear with a tony ring of white head. Has a grassy, straw, lemon aroma. Mild hops, lemon/fruits, flowers. Very good for a blonde - one of the better of this style Iíve had

presario (4902) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 29, 2007
Chicago trip. Monday 21:20+. Thick white head on gold. Relatively quiet nose, some grassy notes. Hops and wet grain flavour with vegetable notes. Funky weird finish.
