In this beer blog, we are going to get into another brew from New Belgium Brewery. It is their Blue Paddle Pilsner. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know New Belgium Brewery. Let us get into this Pilsner.
It has a clear golden color with a white constant head. The aroma has a sweet malty to light citrus. It is pretty faded. The taste has a light carbonated malty notes with a dry crisp finish. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Employee owners and free time come together with ping-pong and our favorite Pilsner. Blue Paddle always wins with a refreshing bitterness, vibrant finish, and an impressive backhand.
Here is a description from their website (www.newbelgium.com):
Blue Paddle Pilsener-Lager beer
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.

Ending, just like lagers, I am trying to find the perfect craft pilsner. I believe that I have found the beer from New Belgium Brewery. This is a nice drinkable beer but the one thing that I do not like about it. It is pretty sweet for the beer style. I still love this pilsner. This is a beer that I would drink during football season or during a hockey game at home. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
