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.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2003 refreshing and citrucy with a hint of malty sweetness. Huge whte head, good carbonation. Classic golden pilsener. Light and unoffensive, nothing special but ok. hints of yeast too, as it warmed.

Mostly malty aroma. The head sticks around for a while and is frothy and white. Good light-golden pilsner color. Lightly malty, lightly hoppy taste. Middle-of-the-road pilsner.

Fizzy pour, champagne-like. nose of new spring grass, kinda florally, with just a hint of green apple. Definately one of the more satisfying pilsners. Clean finish, crisp-Yummy!

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2008 Bottle... The nose is lightly malty with aromatic hops. Notes of herbs and citrus. A whisper of toffee or butterscotch. Crystal clear golden hue. Medium-sized, fizzy white head. Quickly and fully diminishing. Very good lacing. The flavor is very well balanced. Maltier than many pilseners up front, but not sweet. A touch bitter on the backside. Fairly thin, but that goes with the style. Light-bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. A short, crisp, clean, dry finish. Clover and fresh cut fescue appear briefly. Refreshing. An excellent lawnmower beer.

I hate rating beer after Grant410. =) It was very skunky and I couldn’t tell anything about it other than that. It tasted pretty gross, like a cheap American standard.

Skunky, first of all. Second of all, this tastes very alcoholic for a low ABV beer. Golden apple flavors and a nice hops bite at the end. An ugly straw color with absolutely no head. Overall a snooze; there are much better pilseners.

Enjoyable hop flavor and some bitterness as well. Not spectaular, but nothing that terrible either.

I didn’t really know what to expect after the horrible rap pilseners seem to get in America, but this beer was pretty good. Nice hop bitterness with a slight malt finish. A very good summer refresher.

Thin light head, medium-heavy carbonation, smooth with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Average, drinkable, probably good on a hot day.
