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!

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.

I’m not sure why I don’t like this beer. All the ingredients are there for a great brew to be loved by me, but I think it’s a little acidy, and there was something not quite right about the mouth-feel of the beer. Not the best beer from a pretty good brewery. From a bottle.

Poured pale golden yellow with some white head. Very hoppy with herbal and spice notes. Good malt back bone with a bitter punch. Dry finish. Nice.

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.

Poured light color with small white foam head. Flavors of sweet cookies, and a solid mint undertone. The german stylings of this are eveident in all aspects of this brew.

Thanks to Ughsmash for this. Pours cloudy murky orange with a small white head. Fruity and spicy nose. Intersting for a pilsner, not as crisp and floral on the hops, cloudy and a bit to fruity, but a good beer. Earthy and grassy hops show their bitterness more then their floral characters, citrusy fruity flavors show with a bit of spiciness in the finish.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2009
Bottle thanks to Skyview. Lightly hazy yellow-orange with a smooth white head, very herbal spicy hop note some earthy sweet hay malts in the aroma. Taste is peppery malty, too much like a Helles, warm hay, grassy hops, not that refreshing.

Purchased at Breeze Thru Wine & Spirits in Milwaukee, WI; enjoyed at home on a Thursday night while doing some work. Appearance is a pale, clear yellow with a very thin white head that slightly rims around the glass. Aroma is slightly sweet, hay, yeast, not bad. Taste is crisp and clean, not unlike other New Glarus brews. It’s one of my least favorite styles, and New Glarus does a decent job with it, but I’d still prefer other NG brews over this one.

Bottle. Thanks to adnielsen for sharing at the Midwest Beer Summit 2012. Straw, grain aromas and flavor. Average german pilsener.

backdaft (202) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow. Thin white head with some delicate lacing. Aroma is almost nonexistent; maybe some grassy notes. Flavor is light bready malts balanced well with hops. Not too bitter or overpowering. Well carbonated with a crisp spicy finish.
