UPDATED: MAY 15, 2007 My previous rating really shows how much I’ve learned about beer. None the less this is a damn tasty brew. Easy to drink, "a boring beer made very well" as one of my friends put it... Ty5592 (1024) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2007
Bottle from Iowaherkeye. Clear gold color with small head. Smells just like pilsner Urkell. That taste was dry with light malt. Clean dry finish. Very refreashing. IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 9, 2008
Nice hazey golden pour with medium white head. Tasted nicely of hops and spices. Smooth and refreshing. Nice balanced brew. May buy again. Lemke10 (995) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Home Town Blonde is the newest addition to the New Glarus family debuting in the late summer of 2012. As of now it is listed as a limited production, but perhaps with gaining popularity, we will see it again in 2013.
It pours a clear light amber color with bubbly head giving off that great, authentic pilsner taste. The scent is rather mild with the use of 4 different hops. Overall, it is a very inviting aroma.
Upon my first sip, I could not have guessed I was drinking a pilsner made in Wisconsin and not from Germany. The taste is light, refreshing and slightly fruity. The ingredients compliment each other so well it is difficult to pick out specific ingredients. Finishes with and ever so slight crisp and bitter after taste.
There is nothing better than waking up and finding out there is a new New Glarus beer on the market. This is a great, unique add to their already stellar line up of brews. I’m sure not many will find this to be their new favorite, but it is a nice transition from Totally Naked to Home Town Blonde. In the German tradition, here’s Prost!

Arriving too late to sample the Red, I tried this. Whatever. .............. 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. ttutony (941) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2015
Golden yellow, transparent, with a thin white head. Complex noble hop aroma. Nice Pilsner malt on the palate with a noble hop backing. Great beer. nolankowal (939) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2007
Bottle RBSG 07. Yellow pour with a white head. Aroma of dank skunky hops and pale malt. Flavors of grassy hops, pale malt, yeast and a bit og lemon zest. Medium/light body with a bitter clean finish. Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 3, 2004
Bottle pours a pale yellow with a small head, some lace. The aroma is malty and floral. Strong malt backbone, fruity, almost like rose water, and bittered to balance. The body is nice and rich. Overall, not my favorite, but still pretty good.
