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.

Aside from the fact I don't go looking for pilsner, on a trip to the brewery itself I gave it a shot,considering things usually get better closer to the source and it was...free!

An amazing feel with hop bitterness backed with water-mineral texture. Much more flavor -- mild neroli, hay, apple -- and feel than others of the style. An odd near raspy but easy finish. Screw Alamo, Lone Star, BudMillerCoors, Shiner -- this is my Texas Summer beer!

Bottle. A light golden color with a foamy white head. A lager hop and flowery aroma. Dry and crisp, but too much like a bad foreign lager.

A good Pllsner. This is what Budwiser wishes it was. Nice color, dry finish

Just awful. How much more bitter can you get? I expect much better from New Belgium. Tastes like it was brewed with potash. Insanely bitter.

Amber color, thick white head,lace all the way. Bitterness overpowers the sweetness in this brew. So far this is my least favorite from this company.

I really don’t like pilsners. Pours a light gold color with a medium thin head, sparse lacing. There is some carbonation to it as well. A bit of redeeming citrus in the nose, but not enough to make me really like it.

boto (1826) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - APR 1, 2003
Very pale straw yellow in color. Small fizzy head that goes away quite quickly. Fair amount of hops in the nose and taste. A mediocre pilsner, but still not too bad

Medium bodied but extrememly clear. Day I say, almost like a Corona to look at? Decent malty textures and not too much residual sugars. A good brew.
