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.

Clear and golden with a small white head. Clean, malty, floral aroma. Maly and hops in the flavor, with a little fruit and a perfect bitter finish. A bit of graininess. Tastes like a cross between a German Pils and an American lager.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2004
Color is a clear, bright golden hue, and the head is a large, but soon slimming, solid white. Aroma is zesty, alive with hops, notes of straw and sea-foam, with hints of citrus. On the palate, a fresh, tasty, zingy greeting of hops jumps on board, but it fades some, and leaves a dry finish. Adequate bitterness, but more than adequate taste. Body is light, malt is just-right, and hops are more than pulling their weight, and retain their presence through the end. Each sip delivers another fresh, delicious helping of hoppiness on the tongue, and this never diminishes throughout the contents of the bottle. The refreshing, tingling, vital hop buzz never quits during consumption of this note-perfect pilsener.!

pilsener, pilsner, pilsen? An indistinct brew, my first from this brewer. On the "corny" side. Once is enough

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2004
Gold. Like most New Belgium beers this is not very aromatic. Banana, honey dew melon, peanut butter, noble hops and pale malt. Well layered malty fruitiness (sauvignon blanc, pear) and notes of banana bread, lemon and a nice dry but yet still oily hop leaf finishes things out. A cornucopia of different flavors and a satisfying creamy mouthfeel. A very nice Pilsner.

Bottle - Fox and Hound Pub - Austin, Tx. Light golden appearance, decent creamy white head, good lacing. Bit of a fresh lake water aroma. Flavor has some honwy sweetness to it with a trace of butter. Not half bad for a pilsnener, went well with the sandwich I had. Mouthfeel is thick enough and stays strong to the finish.

a blinding blonde color, like a scandanavian beach babe bathed in the baltic sunlight of solsitice. it’s as clear as a story book moral, the head was soft and alabaster white. enjoyed in a snifter glass, the aroma couldn’t help but convect upward bearing fairly vivid discriptions of corn-yellow grains and hot sun on summer grass-- and not much else; something lightly fragrant in a sweet way like a wedge of pear. again, clarity and simplicity were what they were shooting for. it’s a quencher, with grainy malts and jazzy carbonation. some dry hop leaf bitterness catches up, mingling with the mild lemony sweetness, acting like they’re old chums-- and maybe they really are-- ’cause those two leave together. i don’t know what the ’blue’ in the name is about, but, as far as the other part: it certainly doesn’t whomp ya like a paddle. rather, it nuzzles you like a poodle. so i’ll call it blue poodle pils.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Lightly hazy deep gold, short lived white head. Grainy malt & moderate floral hop; very clean, a bit of sulphury yeast. Well balanced just to bitter, drier finish also bitter; very subtle earthy hop flavor & again w/ the sulphury yeast. Bready malt , very clean & crisp. Higher carbonation, prickly m/f and dry, lighter bodied & snappy, but not watery. Very well made Pilsner style from a company mostly know for Belgian style ales.

Mediocre pilsener. Had a ok hoppy taste with a nice bitter finish. Not the best from New Belgium but better than Bud or something.

A good pils. Light sweet aroma. Clear pale-yellow in color. Lightly sweet and bitter. Dry and light bodied with a very short aftertaste.
