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!

Pale golden body with a thick, clinging white head. The aroma is light but inviting. Biscuit, hops, and spice. Smooth mouthfeel with nice carbonation towards the end. Flavor is good if not exciting. Semi-sweet up front with cracker and biscuit notes. It finishes with a decent hoppy bite. Another good beer from New Glarus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2013
12 oz bottle served in a COAST brewing curved pint. Split with the fiancee. A: Pours a solid gold color with a pure white head forming on pour. It recedes slowly to a thick cap with tons of sticky lace. S: Sticky German hops with that specific spicy bite. Pale malts with a little bit of mineral-like qualities to it. T: Typical German hop profile, slightly gluey with pale cracker malt and some wheat like qualities. Lightly spiced hop quality as well. M: Light bodied with a medium high carbonation level. Slightly sweet finish. O: Pretty typical German style lager. The hops are the star which is standard for the style. Nothing mind blowing. Serving type: bottle

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 4, 2006
Pours a golden amber with off-white head. Aroma of grains & grass with some mild hoppiness. Flavor follows aroma, but introduces some honey notes and a bitterness on the finish.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - AUG 28, 2007
Pilsner style aroma with light lemon and hops. Classic pilsner colors with a foamy head. Mild malt and hops flavors, mild bitterness, citrus notes, some hay. Lightly creamy palate, well carbonated and a crisp finish. Balanced towards bitter on the duration, light overall. A good pilsner.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2007
Poured a clean straw yellow body with a small white foam that left some nice lace. Aroma was earthy yeast and subtle sugary hops. Flavors are sweetbread, cookie, sweet white grapes and a mint/menthol finish all acompanied by a nice earthiness through-out.

Clean blonde color with creamy thick head. Smells of bright hops and light malt. Nice hop presence for this pilsner. Balanced nicely with a light malt presence. Palate is light. A nice beer for the style. Thanks to Bockyhorsey for this one.

2-22-08 bottle.
Clear bubbly yellow. Smells malty and quite doughy. Sweet yeast flavor that actually tastes quite like sourdough bread. Not a style that I usually prefer - but this is definitely one of the better pilseners that I have had.
