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!

Bottle. Nice clear yellow with a thin head. Much stronger hop aroma than expected with the color. Well balanced malt flavor with a strong bitter finish. Another good beer from New Glarus.

Pours a golden color with a big fluffy white head and good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is herbal and hoppy with some light crisp malt. Reminds me a bit of weedwacking in the best possible way.

The flavor is very herbal, very hoppy, clean and well defined malt character with some mild honey and a good crispness, just a mild doughy sweetness shows through. The beer has a pretty high bitterness level for a "typical" pilsner.

I love beers like this one; it’s a pity I didn’t buy a case.

Pours a clear light golden color with a finger sized head of pure white foam. Nose is hoppy. Very creamy on the palate, the taste is of bread, grain and hops. Most notable for its creaminess, this blond pilsner can be paired with deli sandwiches, snacks or light cheeses.

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!

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.

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.
