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.

A great beer. Nice underrepresentation of hops and malt, yet they forge an identity all their own. Hints of sweetness and flora captivate the drinker. A high-quality brew.

Crisp aroma, slightly bitter, but little-to-no hops to speak of in the aroma. Golden color and white head. Slight malts on the taste and grainy bitterness. Not bad. Pleasant mouthfeel, crisp finish. Quite drinkable, but not a favorite.

The bottle poured a beautiful, crystal clear, golden beer with a pure white small foamy head that lasted for a while leaving nice lacing. The aroma was unexpectedly pleasant. Instead of being the typical pilsner skunk, it had a low-key maltiness with delicate undertones of fruit. The mouthfeel is light and wet. The taste starts off slightly sweet with notes of apple and banana coming out in the middle. The finish is slightly bitter, long lasting and continues to have very slight notes of fruit.

Some grainy malts with hints of lemon and grassy hops in the aroma. Golden color with a frothy white head. Some malt, though a bit bland and almost stale tasting, Moderate bitterness. Finishes crisp. Meh.

Oakes (16516) - 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.

Ray1975 (251) - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 6, 2005
Pours a golden straw color with a small white head. Aroma of straw and a bit of malt. Flavor is a bitter grassy flavor with a bit of malt. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation. Not exciting but a very refreshing beer.

Bright gold with a frothy white head. The aroma is malty with fresh bread and celery. There is also apple core. The taste has A nice soft touch of citrus with grass and some slight celery in the finish. Nice and refreshing. Very well made for an American Pilsener.

pours a slowly effervescent yellow with a minor white head. aroma is dusty hay and some sweet floral notes. thick flavor of malt coats the tongu, bitter on the back end that is o.k. a little more chewy than i like. not bad overall.i could drink a few of these while doing yard work, or after some other vigorous activity.

Well, it’s not the worst pilsner out there. I guess I just don’t like pilsners anymore. This pours a clear yellow color with a pilsner head. It’s pretty much like most other pils out there with a little bit more of a caramel flavor. Drink this one if your mowing the lawn or something.
