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!

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle:   Bright straw yet hazy, small to moderate white frothy head, spotty lacing.   Clean straw/hay on the nose.   A little grassy.   Much the same on the tongue.   Light dryness.   Very smooth and clean, albeit very light too.   I suppose that’s to be expected.   If this is a spring seasonal, its amazing how well it held up.   Tastes fresh.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   A little wheaty profile on the exit, lingering straw and hay.   Touch of sweetness too.   Very simple, clean, and well made.   Thanks Bob!

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.

This poured a nice golden color with a white head. Aroma was of noble.hops, light cracker, grape skin sweetness. Flavor was nice moderate spicey hop but, followed by a short grapey and crackery swallow. Super dry and an.awesome pils.

BBB63 (6557) - 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.

Bottle: The aroma consists of light lemon, honey, bread, and grass. It pours a transparent gold with a small soapy white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of honey and lemon. The finish has light-moderate hay, grass, floral notes, and light lemon peel. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation.

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!

vyvvy (6486) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Thanks to Terminus for picking this one up for me. Pours blonde (duh) with a sudsy white head. The smooth pale malt, some spicy hops, hints of smooth citrus and a touch of cream. Medium / light body with underscored sharp carbonation. The flavor begins just like the aroma with more spice on the finish and some oxidation showing up. This is a good beer that I’d like to get fresh and rerate.
