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.

Quality pilsner with a good balance between malts and hops and no off flavors. Slight tartness and a tad watery on the finish.

From bottle at home... Pours pale gold, clear as a bell. Very light aroma of bread and grass. Flavors are well balanced with a hint of sweetness. Light bodied with a lingering finish, easy drinking.

Pours a crystal clear pale yellow with a bright white head. Taste is slightly sweet at the start finishing with a sharp earthy bitterness that finished dry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Decent pilsner. Continue to be impressed by new belgium. Reminds me of a solid miller or coots light with a little bit more solid flavor ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a slightly brassy straw with a foamy head. Nose is yeast, faint apple, lemon, slight funk. Palate is crisp. Slightly grainy, faint notes of New Belgium yeast, red apple skins, lemon, noble hops. Finishes slightly bitter. Not bad.

Pours pale straw. Light bteady atoms. Flavor same with mild hop finish. Palate may be it’s standout feature as it’s got a nice chewiness, especially for the style. Overall it’s refreshing, with a pleasing mild flavor and nice body. Pils is not my norm, but this one seems nicely done.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a light golden color with a two finger head of fizzy foam. The head has a great level of retention, very slowly fading over time to leave lots of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is rather light overall with the aroma constituted mostly by a slightly grainy and bready smell. Beyond these aromas are some very light hints of grass and some lighter fruits of an apple and pear nature. Taste – The taste begins with a quite bready flavor mixed with a little bit of fruit of apple and pear. Along with these flavors are some lighter flavors of caramel and a little bit of a grainy taste. As the taste moves forward the fruit fades a tad all while the grain grows stronger with some hop flavors of a grassy and slightly yeasty taste coming to the tongue. With a surge of the grain that comes at the very end, and a lighter level of an herbal taste, one is left with a moderately crisp, but still rather flavorful and malty flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather thin with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. For the style and the moderately sweet, yet crisp and bready taste,s the feel is rather nice and creates a rather easy drinking feel for the pilsner style. Overall –A little on the sweeter side, but with enough grassy and herbal hop and some more bready and grainy flavors to keep it all balanced. And at an only 4.8 % abv. this is a rather nice easy drinking pils. A great summer time brew.
