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.

Into a pint glass. Finger of head, light clear straw colored body. Smells doughy and like pine tree resin. It’s a little off-putting to me. Malty taste (for a lager), mild bitterness at the end, short finish. Light body, fairly low carbonation. Pretty average, except for the smell. Good for a summer day.

A good pilsener, perhaps too hoppy and malty. Ideally more crisp and a touch of german hops. But this was still good and enjoyable. Good carbonation and somewhat light on the tongue.

Can at home. A light spritzy Pils, with cracker malt, straw, Saaz hops, fresh mown grass, and a dry grainy finish. Meh.

Palidor19 (3145) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2016
Rich golden malt, slight straw and hay, mild but notice Pilsner hops. Creamy yet fizzy head. A nice spring/summer beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ferris (12137) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2016
Draft - Light orange and citrus notes. Clear gold with a rich white head. Light grains and citrus with a touch of peel. Nice beer, but a bit more citrus than in any Euro pils o have had.

patricks110 (2405) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 23, 2016
A very basic beer. Pour a clear golden straw with a fizzy white head. The nose is grainy and straw with a pinch of floral and grass notes. Basic profile, light grains and cereal malts with a pinch of hops. Clean and crisp.

HopTsing (546) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2016
From the tap poured a yellow brew with a thick white head. Well balanced aromas and flavors of malt and hops. A little heavier than I like in a Pilsner, but tasty, never the less.

Pour is clear blonde. Taste is straw and mild hops. Kind of fired up my sneezes. Coincidence?

altonbrownd (5415) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAR 10, 2016
On tap at Laughing Man. Gold body with medium head. Nose is eggy, hoppy. Taste is toasty, of hops and wheat. But a rather bland beer really.

1/21/16 Washington DC (16 oz draft pour into standard pint glass). Blonde pour, nominal white head and carbonation. No aroma, somewhat sweet hop taste, nice and easy going down. Overall OK offering.
