COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Climb on in and grab a paddle. Our first foray into lagered beers, Blue Paddle Pilsener-Lager, is a Czech style pilsener with a refreshing crispness from noble hops and a rich, malty finish. ‘Blue Paddle’ refers to the implement our warehouse manager’s Grandma once used to lovingly paddle his a** when she caught him stealing sips of her beer. With more body than a traditional Belgian pils, Blue Paddle is reflective of Europe’s finest pilseners.

I really like this beer even though it isn’t highly rated on this site. It has a very distinctly sweet taste and little hop aroma. very deep flavor for most pilsner brews. I am very impressed

This beer has a good strong palate and and flavor. It is a classic pilsner, but much much better than a Miller. You can also smell something other than that classic Bud smell that is reall just alcohol in water. I would buy this again, if the price was nice.

This is a good "beer" beer. It has a traditional beer taste. If you are looking for something that tastes like the big 3 with more punch than this is a good beer. Much more bitter with an aftertaste.

Bottle. Golden yellow color with a foamy white head. Lively on the palate. Citrus notes that almost reminded me of limes. Clean and crisp. Nice micro lager.

Another beer courtesy of Phillybeer. Nice head out of the bottle, some lacing. Nice flavoring for a Pilsner. Sweet, citrusy, hoppy all at the same time. A superior pilsner beer. I’m not a big pilsner fan but this again was very good.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2004
Disappointing. Amber with frothy white head. Aroma was nondescript. Fizzy, watery body and an unremarkable flavor. New Belgium can and does do lots better.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Flowery, fruity hop aroma - smells like maybe an American derivative of a noble hop. Grainy, corn flaky malt flavor, moderate hop flavor. Medium bitterness. Not a bad American pilsner.

We tried a " few " glasses of this last year while on a camping\driving tour of Colorado. Loved the color and the hoppy smell. Not too bad for a Pilsner.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Pours a nice golden color with a short lasting white head. aroma has a straw and hop smell, taste was very crisp with wheat taste and a nice bitterness throughout. Fairly dry but a decent pilsner.

mockerboy (52) - Kansas, USA - MAY 5, 2004
Pours golden with a white head the quicky disappears. Not a good sign.The taste is crisp but overwhelmingly hoppy. Finishes very bitter. Not alot of pleasure coming from this one. I don’t thikn it’s new belgium thats to blame hear I just haven’t yet found a pilsner that I like. They all seem skunky to me.
