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.

A decent enough middle of the road pilsner. Decent for a hot day, but not real exciting otherwise. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not bad for a lager. Pilsners aren't my thing, but I got these in a sampler and they can't go to waste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rustbucket0873 (268) - Krikville, New York, USA - MAY 30, 2014
pours a Bright yellow color with a white fluffy head. the aroma is grassy, earthy, and crisp smelling. the flavor is light up front followed by a harsh bitterness, much more bitter than a other pislners, with a flavor of grass earth, and almost a hay flavor.. this is ok.. but i can think of many others i would rather drink.

Beerenberger (1371) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Faint nose from a clear light yellow pour with a white ring and minimal lacing. On the palate…looking for flavor - but nada! Medium-light body and medium carbonation. Overall, New Belgium should be paddled till they’re blue for letting this beer out.
