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.

omhper (19799) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2002
Golden coloured. Vague hop aroma. Slightly malty, slightly dryish. Probably wouldn’t make a list of the top 1000 pilseners in Germany.

Bottle, 2007-09-18, 6-3-6-3-12=30
Light, hazy blond color. Light aroma, but with some hop, and light fruitness. The flavor as well is not bad: light mouthfeel, dry, with light crispy malt and the hopping is quite good.

Draught at Cricket’s Grill, Waco, 2006-12-22, 4-2-5-3-11=25
Hazy blond color. Poor aroma. The flavor is ok, with some malt, but very simple. The bitterness is medium high. Ordinary Lager.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2005
Golden colour with a soft sparkle. Well-balanced aroma with herbal hops and fresh bread. The soft body is accented towards the malts, which unfortunately don’t come off with the same fresh expressiveness that they do in the aroma. More like dull, day-old bread. There is some hoppy crispness in the finish to salvage things a bit.

Smacks more of a standard 50s American lager than a crisp clean pilsener. Like the start, bubbly with some hop and a hint of citrus, but the finish goes into a flat malt. It may be all malt, but it makes me think of wheat. So I wasn’t old enough to drink in the 50’s, but I started, and the same beers were available in the 60’s. In the 60’s this would have left MIchelob in the dust.
