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 that’s no surprise in Wisconsin. Enjoy!

madvike (2582) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle - Pours clear yellow with a big foamy white head. Nose is floral hopping, light perfume, honey malt, and light, smooth graininess. Real smooth taste, grain, light herbal/floral hops, with a light honeyed yeast. Light and creamy in the mouth. I hope Dan Carey is wrong and this does sell, because I want to drink this stuff year round.

Another solid beer from New Glarus. Tried this with Josh in KC after his trip to WI in 2013. Light yellow and nearly transparent (as long as you don’t get the sediment. Relatively dry with a thicker body than Belgian style blondes.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 28, 2007
Sampled at the RBSG 07 Grand Tasting. Nondescript grainy nose on this beer. Light gold color with minimal head. Not bad for a pilsner.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Bottle, thanks to CanIHave4Beers. Pours light yellow with a generous white head and tenacious lacing. Lovely mix of hops; mineral, cereal, grain, light lemon/citrus, grass. Hot damn, this beer is sort of perfect.

MIBRomeo (2492) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 16, 2007
Pour is a light off golden color w/ a crips thick white head and some nice lacing. Aroma is clearly hoppy more so than I expected thinking I was getting a blonde. Palate is smooth but not big, full but not thick.. if that makes any sence. Flavor is well hopped some floral and grassy notes w/ a good amount of grain and not much sweetness. Fairly bitter. A great beer for the sytle.

Beerdedone (2488) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. Aroma of pale malts, grain, floral hops and a hint of lemon. Flavor is well hopped with grain, light malts, grass, and notes of some citrus with a crisp finish.

drjay44 (2481) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAR 7, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, white head, with some lacing, over a slightly hazy dark yellow (SRM 4) body......nose is slightly sweet, with hints of apple, pear, light cereal....taste is slightly sweet, with hints of pear, apple, finishing with a moderate hop bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation high. This is a sweet Pilsner. I wonder if they got the attenuation they wanted. The finishing taste is muddled, and not crisp and clean. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

Very tasty beer here. Well done Dan. Probably one of my favorites from them, especially from their sixers. Really wonderful saaz character with great maltiness to compliment. Keep this one! vote it in!

badnewsbeers (2317) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 8, 2007
clear copper body with minimal white head..basic macro aroma that is very bready and grassy..sour, heavily grassed flavor that is altogether too earthy..this beer would bode well with hippies i am sure
