Paradox Pilsner is a revamp of our original Paradox (which was a Blonde Ale). We have made some tweaks to the yeast fermentation and the base malt to bring you the new, improved Paradox Pilsner.
Although the Pilsner is not the most cerebral of our beers, it is one of our most popular efforts as it combines craft brewing philosophy with easy drinking acumen. As soon as you flip the top off the bottle you know you’re in for something a little different to your run of the mill lager. While the bright golden hue hints at a great quaffing beer, the explosion of passionfruit and citrus aromas (the signature of the Riwaka hop variety) leave you in no doubt you’re in for more than mere refreshment. On the palate the initial biscuity malt sweetness, which is the trademark of European Pilsners, is soon joined by those zingy tropical New Zealand fruit hop notes and leads into a racy tart finish. Making Paradox a distinctively New Zealand take on a European classic. This beer is flavour packed yet crisp and thirst quenching - that’s the paradox!
When your thirst is finally slaked, try another glass with:
- Barbecued seafood
- Marlborough green lipped mussels
- Freshly caught scallops
A great beer for long summer BBQ’s with friends. Paradox is a welcome middle ground between generic mass produced lagers and the strong hop heavy Pale Ales that have led the craft beer explosion.
