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.

Out of the bottle with dinner at home tonight. Light bitterness with some grass and light malt. Light body. Easy for giluping but oretty forgetable.

Not exactly "Czech style", but nice enough. Quite easy to drink, no creaminess, but a serviceable hop profile. Floral and crisp.

cheap (5305) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Looking forward to trying this bottle, never saw it before round here. Looks pale clear and refreshing enough. Smells like its gonna a be a strong tasting pilsner, and it is. Lots of sharper old country pilsner effects. Good sizzle as well which seems to make it more enjoyable. Getting better as the session continues. Finishes with a decent enough pilsner kick.

brownaler (547) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Hazy golden appearance with a bit of malt grassy hops can a flat finish. Drinkable, but not the best of lagers.

JohnGalt1 (1663) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 24, 2016
3/4" white head dropped quickly leaving behind nice lace rings... Crystal clear straw gold. Pale malts and grassy hops are the only aroma. Flavor is very clean pale malt and good bitter backbone with earthy hops mid palate that melt away quickly making me want another sip. Ideal body and carbonation.

mcberko (14356) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2016
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out crisp crackery malt and grassy hops. Flavour is crisp, with grassy hops, biscuity malt and bready notes. Clean and decently balanced. Solid.

Clean and refreshing. Good balance and a hop profile that fits well in this style of beer.

Light golden pour with white head. Light biscuit malt aroma. Clean, crisp malt flavor with little hop bitterness. Refreshing and easy drinking, but not a lot of flavor.

KyotoLefty (9295) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 6, 2016
Tap at Antenna. Nice biscuit malt nose, noble hops. A bit sweet, biscuity, cream, with herbs a light bitterness. A good fresh pils. Not so exciting, but good enough.

badhack (507) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 24, 2016
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.
