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!

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2004
Bottle from Kevin42. Usual pils pour, straw yellow with a thin head. This is a very full flavored well rounded beer. Slightly spicy and citrus with a clean finish. Not the best New Glarus I have had, but his is damn good. If there were more pilsners like this, I might actually like pilsners.

12 oz bottle: a foaming, clear yellow monster…an ice cream like mound remains as the head shrinks. A sweet malty aroma crinkles the nose, but does boast some decent banana, and hop presence does offer some solace…thin, watery palate with minimal flavours of soap, bitter honey, and wet grain. A stronger hop presence would make this one very nice.

Decent looking clear golden colored beer with a well retained egg white head. Aroma is grassy/hay. Flavor improves upon the aroma with a straightforward bitter hop bite. There is a dash of oat grain in the finish. A good beer, excellent for the style.

Skyview (6115) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Picked up single 12-oz bottle from Bob McFarland Liquors in McFarland, WI. Pours a clear golden pale blonde brew with a thin and fast dissolving white head. Aroma of muti-grain breakfast cereal, grassy hops, with a touch of honey. Taste is very high carbonated, light bodied with flavors of light multi-grain and some light peppery spice. Finish is a moderate hop bitter aftertaste that quickly disappears.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of Bockyhorsey - Pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a one finger thick off white head. Spotty lacing. Aroma is spicey, herbal hops and light grain. Flavor is lightly sweetened malt with a nice hop bitterness. Medium body. A very nice lager. Thanks Bill and Wendy.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2007
12 oz bottle. Clear, sparkling gold with a small, oat-colored, puff of head. Doughy nose with lemon. Medium body but full for a pilsener. Begins with some coppery tang then dough, apple and lemon pith. Pleasant bready drying with hints of orange peel.

Thanks Ben! Had this one bottled at the lodge at Dixon Lake Resort, Squaw Lake, Minnesota. Cloudy, light orange pour with a thin, bubbly head, piney hoppiness, very drinkable and balanced. Good!

Bottle courtesy of IowaHerkeye. Thanks!
Pours rich golden into a pilsner glass with a nice bubbly and foamy white head giving good lacing. Smell is nice light malt, a bit lemony, tangy yeast and nice fresh breadiness. Taste is a touch thin, but nicely crisp, a hint lemony and very refreshing with a nice neutral bitterness. Easy to drink with no off flavors and a uniqueness to it. Simple but nice.

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Pours a deep golden yellow color with a white head. Aroma is pilsner malts, a hint of grain, and nice peppery earthy hops. Flavor is pilsner malts, honey, a hint of grain, some fruityness, and a nice peppery hop finish. A really good pilsner.

Hair6a11 (1481) - Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle; Pour is fairly clear golden, visible carbonation, modest fine bubbled white head in this glass ; it retains on the average side, with some light lacing. The nose is grassy, lemon, biscuits... this one is a very nice drinker, though. It feels a little light as far as mouthfeel goes.... The finish has a touch of cream. The flavor profile emulates the nose, but perhaps in a more subdued way. Overall a great pils
