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!

WeeHeavySD (3360) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2007
12oz via trade with Robertsreatlity. Thanks for the Bonus Rob. Pours golden with a fading but semi stable fluffy white head. Nose is sweet and light and typical for a lager. Taste is slightly hoppy with a nice malt background. Lagerish but nice. This is an easy drinking session brew.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2007
A classic pilsner that shows nice light notes of hops that follw into a crisp and balanced malt flavor on the finish.

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Above average pilsner. Faint spice notes and fruit. Well balanced but tame. Not as good as Capitol’s or Victory’s.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - JUL 8, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2007 Crystal clear, dry looking body. A heavily carbonated gold pour results in a fizzy, thin white head with decent retention. Noble hops clearly dominate and comprise the bulk of the aroma. Backing notes include lightly toasty grains, wet grass, raw cereal grains and wheat, flowers. The flavor is very accessible. Light to fleeting moderate hop bitterness, fresh and earthy grass notes and lightly sweet malts all combine for a gentle, fresh and quenching taste. Acidity is negligible. The palate is soft and somewhat fizzy. Finishes light, long and earthy/grassy, bitterness lingering in corners of the mouth. Well done, though not as exciting or as crisp as I’d envisioned.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 11, 2007
12 ounce bottle from Woodmans in Beloit, WI (June 2007) served just a few minutes out of the fridge from a Christoffel glass. A beautiful pour; big frothy, creamy head laces well as it decays above the dark gold/light amber clear body…..grassy, lightly sweet, lightly mineralic aroma (lime, chalk) is fresh enough but a bit subdued….the body is moderately sweet, a bit sticky at first but the juiciness makes me not care so much, drying out and getting quite bitter and hoppy at the finish, with a hint of dry woods and a touch of sulfur….quaffable enough, but far from this brewery’s best lager.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Bottle thanks to Badbeer poured a clear gold color with a nice white head. Aroma was pilsner malt with a touch of honey and hops. The flavor was clean and smooth with a decent hop bitterness. Taste was more of an ale than a lager so im not sure what it really is.

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.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - JUL 2, 2007
Bottle. Lots of pilsener malt and euro hops on the nose with bright noses of grass and hay. Pours golden copper with a bright white head. Fairly crisp on the palate. Slightly sour. Decently hopped. Hint of honey. Malty backbone. Medium body with average carbonation. Fairly rich and creamy pils.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - JUL 3, 2007
Yellow with good head and lacing. Aroma and flavor is malt and grass with a bitter finish. Good refreshing beer.

kreepindeth (404) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 4, 2007
Herbal hop aroma. Pours a transparent straw color with a quickly dissipating bright white head.mouthfeel is medium to thin but very quenching. Very nice clean bitter hop kick in the finish.
