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 thats no surprise in Wisconsin. Enjoy!

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.

Poured a nice mid-gold with a fine bubbled foamy head. Aroma was of malts with a fruity twinge. Taste was malty and light upfront and then went into a sour/bitter finish. Palate was decent. Overall, this taste more like a pilsner than a true blonde but it was OK.

Bottle. Pours a clear and pale yellow. Flavor is a classic pilsener that doesnt have any real distinguishing characteristics. Not bad, but boring.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Bottle, thanks to CanIHave4Beers. Pours light yellow with a generous white head and tenacious lacing. Lovely mix of hops; mineral, cereal, grain, light lemon/citrus, grass. Hot damn, this beer is sort of perfect.

fidelis83 (2300) - 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.

joshmcg000 (388) - Iowa, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Pours slightly hazy gold. Slight white head. Aroma is grassy hops. Slightly heavier body than i expected. Its got a pilsner taste on the malt side, and a decent hop bite of pine, and a little bit of citrus. Very crisp and refreshing. Pretty good session beer.

bookman10 (1059) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Pours a clear, pale golden yellow. Smallish head. Grassy, floral aromas. Flavor is very typical of a good German pilsner. Flavor is very grassy, with some resinous notes. Very clean finish and mouthfeel. This is a great example of a pilsner--as with most styles Dan takes on, he delivers nothing but a sterling example.

dinkle50 (1443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Light golden color with a 2 finger head that hands around for a while. Slight lacing. Aroma is refreshingly light. A little grain with faint hops. Mouth is thin but the taste is pretty solid. Very easy drinking and better than most German Pilseners out there. Grain dominates the taste with a faint bitterness at the end.

Yellow pour with a small white head. Earth, dough, cereal grain, some yeast notes, and just a touch of hay. Clean finish, crisp.
