New Glarus Home Town Blonde
From New Glarus – Embrace a classic! Hometown Blonde is an Old World style pilsner, assertively hopped with four premium hop varieties. Tettnanger, Saaz, Styrian Golding and Strisselpalt varieties all grace this German-style brew with the complex character you enjoy in a classic pilsner.
New Glarus Brewing – New Glarus Home Town Blonde – 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. 4.8% abv.
Appearance: Pours a hazy bright yellow gold with a fluffy white head.
Aroma: From a good yard away you can smell a huge perfumy Euro hop nose. Upon closer inspection is biscuit like malt as well.
Taste: Light dry biscuit malt with a nice grassy earthy hop finish. Finishes crisp and clean.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with lively carbonation.
Overall: Holy smokes, another clean as can be lager from New Glarus. Even as an crazy obsessed hop loving IPA head, I wish someone on the west coast could touch this excellence in the craft lager space.
