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!

12-oz. Thank you, MrFacto! Pours a crystal clear light amber or dark straw with a thin film of white atop. Sour vegetal DMS happening on the nose...I seem to be a magnet for this this evening. Fizzy, medium attack. Crackery, yeasty mid-palate. Sourish finish. Pretty surprised this is an NG beer.

not really to my liking. Pale yellow without any real lasting head. no real flavor to speak of except for an odd aftertaste that I can really put my finger on

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2012 Bottle. A seasonal brew. This is my favorite of the New Glarus beers. It is a decent pilsener, but the color is too dark due to the use of caramel malts which do not belong here and the aroma and flavor of hops is too strong. This is not an "old world style pilsner" as it says in the description, rather an American micro-pils, along the lines of Samuel Adam´s nobel pils. The hops taste "green" because of dry hopping which you would never find in a German pils. New Glarus has all the tools to make really great beer, but never gets there.
