3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light gold pour, decent white head. Nose is toasted pilsner malt, hint Euro hops. Bitter. Middle is bread, and cereal. Finish is light bitterness. Eh.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours straw gold with a lasting thin lace. Grainy, with lemongrass notes on the nose, lemony, malty medium bodied palate. Overall, I disagree with the low score on this beer.

12oz bottle from Ptaz. Poured a crystal clear golden color with a finger of foamy white head. Aroma and taste of skunk, grass, grain, lager yeast, and a hint of lemon. Meh

Itís winter, so itís only natural that I decided to drink, er, Blue Paddle Pilsener? Okay, so itís a little counterintuitive, but I figured, "Ah hell, why not?" Happily New Belgiumís brew works in decidedly non-pilsener weather, too. Blue Paddle has a straw color body and clean head. Smells of bread and some lively hops. Taste is smooth and thereís just enough hop bitterness to keep it from being too sweet. Finish is clean and bright. Blue Paddle may not be particularly exciting, but itís a no-nonsense thirst quencher... even in the winter.

Bleh. Sour, skunky hop in this one. Not much there to be proud of. Like a bad version of a pale ale, this one is.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz. bottle from BevMo. Clear yellow brew with white head. Aroma a little skunky, perhaps sour hops. Taste is very light malt at the start and then a blend of mostly sour hops with a bitter finish. Clean and crisp. Seems to be missing a moderating malt or bread-like fullness. Thin palate. Not memorable.

Decent pilsner. Light going down and more of a summer time beer. Decent but not one if their best

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slight grain based aroma, not strong smell at all, pure golden color that pours semi clear in the pint glass, not as clear as Miller Lite but definite clarity, zero head at the top of the pint glass with minimal carbonation/fizz, decent taste but leaves a lot to be desired, very forgettable beer, not bad just not something to write home about.

"i do seem to like the noble hops in my pils! thatís the strength of this beer, though i didnít like it quite as much as sam adams noble. fairly clean and crisp but with a stronger hop presence than par for the style."
