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! Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2013
12 oz bottle served in a COAST brewing curved pint. Split with the fiancee.
A: Pours a solid gold color with a pure white head forming on pour. It recedes slowly to a thick cap with tons of sticky lace.
S: Sticky German hops with that specific spicy bite. Pale malts with a little bit of mineral-like qualities to it.
T: Typical German hop profile, slightly gluey with pale cracker malt and some wheat like qualities. Lightly spiced hop quality as well.
M: Light bodied with a medium high carbonation level. Slightly sweet finish.
O: Pretty typical German style lager. The hops are the star which is standard for the style. Nothing mind blowing.

Light, yellow color. Smell of yeast, some hops, roasted malt, citrus and bread. Taste of lemon, toasted malt, hops, minor alcohol, grass and sugar. Nice summer beer! asedzie (831) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours golden with white head. Nose has biscuits, aromatic floral notes of noble hops. Soft carbonation and some mineral texture in the palate. Very clean and balanced flavor profile - breadiness, light herbal notes, just a touch of bitterness in the finish. Excellent German-style pilsner - perhaps the best US rendition I’ve had.

Clean blonde color with creamy thick head. Smells of bright hops and light malt. Nice hop presence for this pilsner. Balanced nicely with a light malt presence. Palate is light. A nice beer for the style. Thanks to Bockyhorsey for this one. grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 17, 2007
Pours a clear golden with a smallish white head. Aroma is grassy and grainy with a hint of lemon. Slightly sweet with more bitterness than I expected. sthlm (790) - Blank, Alabama, USA - SEP 21, 2012
[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. dwm1034 (785) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Bottle from singles rack at PW. Pours bright clear yellow with white head. Hoppy nose with crisp pilsner taste....look forward to the next one...love the crisp taste. Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 25, 2007
Poured a definite, clear yellow with a little small head. A bit of hops. Nothing too special about this pilsner.
