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.

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.

Clear straw color with a thin bright white head. Good lacing. Grain, bread, and floral aromas. Crisp clean flavor with bread crust and floral notes. Low hop bitterness. Medium to high carbonation. Light body with a clean dry finish. Smooth light mouthfeel. Refreshing hot weather beer.

I liked this beer, very refreshing, a good beer to have over the summer, very light and crisp. Some sweet fruity taste to start, then moved to a bit of hop citrus

Lothore (547) - California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
A- Pours a golden yellow color with a rather substantial head. S- Smell consists of a light, wheaty malt character. T- Bready, light toasted wheat notes. M- Medium bodied with a lot of carbonation. D- Very refreshing. A great lawnmower beer. Not a whole lot going on here but the clean simplicity wins you over in the end.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle pured clear, bright yellow with a nice white head, spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is a bit weak, malts, hops and some wheat/grain. Taste is mostly sweet (from malts) with a bitter finish. Overall nice and refreshing.

Ibrew2or3 (6787) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 22, 2014
12oz bottle pours with a crystal clear bright gold body that supports an off white head. The mild aroma offers up some lightly sweet pilsner like malts as well as faint floral hops. Not nearly as pungent as I was expecting. The taste is much fuller than the nose led onto with a nice pilsner malt sweetened hop bite that’s floral and a touch lime before it gets into a pleasing degree of hop bitterness. It leaves that classic pilsner malty sort of hoppy after taste. Solid pils that could use a bit more aromatics.
