COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In 1906, the Kolsch-style beer originated from the Cologne region of Germany as a crisp and light beer to combat the summer heat. Leinenkugel’s® Canoe Paddler™ is our take on the Kolsch-style beer that we tweaked with a touch of rye. Our spring and summer seasonal has subtle malt flavors, a clean finish and adventurous quality.

Rye kolsch, terrible score...looking for a dry experience. Woody, vegetal aroma like low end heavy lagers. Medium yellow color. Sweet sugary taste, bitter in a palate sense only. Not really a kolsch in any classic way other than being light and drinkable.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2013 From a bottle. Pours very golden yellow with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. A mild, sweet, hot weather beer with very little in the way of hops until the clean finish.

PKURB (15) - Grand Rapids, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear with a light head. Light aroma that i couldnt pick much out of. For a light beer it doesnt have the bitter taste that most do.

Pours medium yellow with a quickly dissipating white head. Nose is cereal. Palate is medium light body with a slightly spicy malt followed by a citrus bitterness.

I would echo a few others opinion. It kind of taste like a light beer. Only with light beer I usually grimace on the aftertaste. With Canoe Paddler it is has no aftertaste. Pretty smooth all the way the through the finish. Not a bad summer beer. No Fruit or Citrus that I could taste.

o_Merlin_o (172) - California, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Pours an almost crystal clear, zero head. Very little aroma. Okay flavoring. Quite aqueous. A light, easy sipping summer beer. Chuggable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bytemesis (2927) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear golden, medium white head, decent lacing. Tons of effervescence. Aroma is corn, mown grass, grain. Flavor is the same, light sweet, touch of floral, grass, light bitterness. Light body, a tad bit sickly on the far finish.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a tall, sticky, stark white head. The aroma picked up lightly-toasted grains and corn with light rye and faint fruit/berry accents.. no real complaints, but I wasn’t excited about drinking it. The flavor found toasted corn, honeysuckle, and bread at the core, with rye and light herbal accents.. a kiss of acidity tried to cut through the sweetness on the finish, and it was quasi-refreshing. Light-bodied with good, moderate carbonation on the palate.. it was sweeter than I wanted, but it flowed well.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle. Clear yellow pour with thick fast dissipating white head. A little tart lemon in the aroma. Thin body, very light flavour of hop. Almost no finish
