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 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.

JPDIPSO (5124) - 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.

Golden with lots of bubbles but a small head. Aroma of hops. Smooth and dry with no bitterness. A full bodied pilsener

Bottle: Clear gold with a tall, just-off-white head. Grains, grass, lemon-honey aroma. Taste is grassy, bitter-sweet grains...... A great example of a classic American Pils. Very good.

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.

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 I’d like to get fresh and rerate.

Clear, likght copper color with a medium head. Quite a hoppy aroma with strong grains. Strong, toasted malt and raw grain flavor. Some unexpected citrus towards the finish. Very interesting.
