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!

BBB63 (5941) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Bottle and served in a NG pint glass: Clean golden hue with a nice lasting frothy lead and very good lace. The aroma has notes of classic herbal and grassy hops (the Saaz shines) with pale biscuity malt, hint of apple, faint chalky yeast esters. The taste is mildly fruity and soft grains at the beginning with some light handed bitter to follow. Grassy and herbal character is dominate throughout and leads to high quality old world enjoyment. The mouth feel is sprite and refreshing with a nicely done dry attenuated finish. A winner for the genre, one the best American made Pils I have had. Try one out for an easy session beer.

3fourths (7855) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 23, 2008
12oz bottle. Slightly hazy hay lemon colored body. Nice, pleasent, lemon and corn fuel nose, but tempered by some pillowy yeast, giving it almost a cream smell. Sweet wheat, hay, lemon, and rich honey malts all over the mouth, with a semi-sharp bite over the middle and a crisp, sweet lemon and cracker pils malt finish. Very tasty.

12oz bottle. Pale yellow tan body, highly filtered and transparent. Steady thin white head. Classic Pils taste, respectably hopped..a touch flowery, peppery. Straightforward clean malt body. Very well balanced, with a dry finish. Classic noble hop flavors. Really quite well done.

Bottle. Pours clear gold with a awesome soapy white head that slowly fades to a sticky lacing and film. Aroma is grass malt and earthy hops. Taste is subtle citrus and lemongrass grain and malt with a nice bitterness of hops throughout. Palate is thin with a fizzy dry finish. Awesome summer brew.

fidelis83 (1901) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Clear gold pour with a 3 finger, soapy, bright white head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is cereal, toast, light grainy sweetness, mineral notes, grassy, spicy, floral and light pine hops. Flavor is more toast, and cereal grain up front, some mineral and bready yeast, nice hop profile, complex and tasty, while still being complex, lots of floral notes, some spicy, a little grass (in a good way), light hints of grapefruit and pine and a nice toasty, lightly honey and malt sweetened hoppy, lightly bitter finish. Light body, with a nicely full, creamy entry, moderate strength, spritzy, but not too sharp carbonation and lightly dry, pleasantly crisp finish. Very tasty, refreshing, yet complex Pils.

theisti (3175) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - NOV 13, 2012
12 oz bottle purchased as part of a mix a six at Festival in Onalaska, Wisconsin. No date markings on the bottle. The pour is a clear golden yellow with a frothy one inch white head. The aroma is soft natural hay, lemon citrus, floral, straw, and a pleasant cracker malt. Fresh and clean. The taste is the nose, clean cracker malt with straw and a nice dose of the lemon citrus floral. Nice blended character of the German hops. A touch of earthy mineral here as well. The palate is light bodied, active bright carbonation, dry mineral light bitter hop finish. Really nice take on a classic German style Pils. Right up my alley.

12 ounce bottle thanks to cbfobes. Thanks! Pours a lighter copper color with a white head of loosely packed foam. The aroma is floral and grassy, with an almost nutty character hidden beneath the pilsnery sweetness. The taste has a nice fruity sweetness with the dry grassyness of the german hops wrapping the beer up with great precision. This is one delicious pilsener. Thanks again, Brandon!

It’s been a while since I’ve rated but I’ve got three weeks to gorge in Wisconsin so here goes. Ar. Honey, grassy hops aroma. Ap. slightly foggy, not crystal clear by any means. Small head dissipates quickly. T. Lightly sweet bready, biscuit and moderate bitterness on finish. P. lightish sparkly body. Nice. Rally really nice pilsner.
