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!

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2003 A great beer, from a great brewery, which is from a great american city. Good carbonation, with flavor that was mostly sweet and hop like. Damn near fine brew from my guys in lill switzerland.

poured into tulip. pours a clear sparkling golden yellow with moderate white head. light gold, fresh crisp aroma of slight hops. light crisp taste, true to the style in its crispness, dry finish. good light and classic, with maybe a very subtle hop bitterness in finish.

Truly an outstanding drinking experience and to those who can get this beer at their local store I am jealous. This might be one of those "go-to" beers because it is outstanding in every way. An aroma of toffee, rich molasses, and brown sugar. Appearance was a deep brown, almost black body, with a very thin head. Flavor was really sweet, molasses and caramel do their best to hide an earthy character that was there. All that and it still has enough to show a dark fruit character that made it go from damn good to great. Excellent beer. A must have.

Big thanks to jarlbartar for bonusing me this tasty brew. 12oz bottle pours clear golden with white head. The aroma is crisp and lively with mild lemon, hints of hop spice and floral hops as well as sugary pale malts and hints of wheat. As it warms the faint hop aromas grow to more than a murmur. The taste starts sweet and malty and quickly turn into crisp a lemon twang (not all that tart or sour), hop spice and floral hops. Just like in the nose. The hop flavor seems to grow into the finish with a nice lingering floral hop sense and carries into the finish.

Smells friuty and the head on this tap beer is very frothy. Tastes very bold and the hops are nice. The friutness adds to the complexity of this beer. Had at the Hoover Ave Ale House.

Bottle - Pours clear yellow with a big foamy white head. Nose is floral hopping, light perfume, honey malt, and light, smooth graininess. Real smooth taste, grain, light herbal/floral hops, with a light honeyed yeast. Light and creamy in the mouth. I hope Dan Carey is wrong and this does sell, because I want to drink this stuff year round.

[Bottle] Pours amber with a small white head. Aroma is doughy, cracker, with some odd scents mixed in which I can’t quite ID. Taste is quite nice with mildly sweet cracker, cheerios, a little honey, and just the right amount of bitterness. Somewhat thin, smooth, long finish. Overall, a solid, sessionable beer which I definitely enjoyed.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2014 Aroma is mild grain sweetness, fruit and very malty. The flavor is malts, citrus, a hint of spice/heat and a very crisp and medium hoppy finish.

Fresh bottle. Aroma of fresh cut grass, bright peach skin, crisp cracker malts. Taste is fresh dough, hay, foggy air. Clean, reshing tasty beer. Like quite a bit.

Really solid pils. Good hops, very refined. I still prefer a good ale, but this is delicious and refreshing.
