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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4763) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Sampled on draft this beer poured a dark golden color with a huge foamy yellow-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was tangy, sweet and malty with a bit of sour mash, vague fruity hops and almost Pez. The flavor was tangy with mild bitterness, crisp fruity and floral hops and a bit of perfume and grass. Medium length finish.Medium body. Disappointing.

12 oz bottle pours light, clear yellow. Big fizzy head. Aroma is mild, light hops. Taste is also mild with the typical pilsener flavor that i don’t care for. After taste is crisp and bitter. Not a bad beer, good for the (not my favorite) style.

demitriustown (1054) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUN 22, 2014
12 oz bottle: Aroma is grassy hops with a lightly bready malt texture poking through. Appearance is a clear golden pour with a thick white head that lingers for quite a while. Taste has got a nice subtle hop note intermingled with a very light malt texture. Palate is medium to low carbonation with a nice clean aftertaste. Overall, Decent stiff for a Pilsener. Cheers!

Refreshing Pilsener with a little more hoppiness than previous ones I’ve tried, but still very light. Got it in a Folly sampler pack, don’t think it would be worth it to get a six pack at $8+, New Belgian has many better beers.

Bottle. Pour a clear gold with a white head. Light hops and malt is the aroma and taste. A nice down the middle pils.

It pours a light golden color with a large white head. As the head disappears there is a fair among of lacing on the glass. There is an aroma of grasses with some hay. The is a heavy grass taste with hay.

joeneugs (3106) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 14, 2014
12 oz. bottle two months before the best by date. It pours a nice clear golden yellow color with a white head. The aroma is crackers, bread and a touch of toast with very weak floral hop notes. The flavor is malt forward with lots of bread, buttered biscuits and crackers. Some very light lemon and floral hops near the finish. Maybe a touch of diacetyl, but not obtrusive. Pretty dry finish. Not bad, but I wish there was more hop character especially since they call this a Czech style pilsener.

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