3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I have paddled a canoe before, and, indeed, I have drank Leinenkugel’s beer. But, never had I partook of a "Canoe Paddler" beer, prior to last night. Did it taste like a canoe paddle? I dunno. Never tasted one before. With that said, I can assure you that "I am not a crook!" While the overall experience was more satisfying than having your testes set on fire, I cannot endorse this brew like I could PBR or Schlitz. Screw this shit. Grab a Blatz, and paddle away from reality as fast as you can brother.

Bottle. Pours a clear light tan color with a head that fades..fizzy looking and crisp drinking with a easy sessionable taste. This is an easy drinking beer for a warm day hanging outside

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a sampler on a business trip to Toledo, 2/25/2014, 12 oz bottle
Nice golden pour with an ok white head. Aromas of malty sweetness, with a bit of hop offset. Taste is fairly generic, malt and hop balanced but nothing special. Mediocre palate. Another "meh" beer from these guys.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, we’ll retained whit head over a clear, gold (SRM 5) body....nose is light cereal, hints of pear, apple fruits, minimal hop spice, light rye......taste starts with hints of pear, apple type sweetness, hints of rye, ending with a mild bitter finish....mouth feel light of medium, soft acid on the finish, no alcohol warmth. This is really not a kolsch. The rye comes in way too much for this very delicate style. It would be interesting to taste the identical recipe without the rye. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours very light with slight aroma and a hint of skunk. I don’t get any rye.
Light mouthfeel and clean finish. So clean in fact, that it’s hardly there.
Maybe if you were paddling a canoe on a hot day....?

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a golden yellow with a thin fizzy white head. Looks like a slightly livelier version of a miller high life. Aroma is sweet malts, grain, grass, and a hint of skunkiness. Nothing too off putting here. Flavor is very mild. Nothing up front but it fades into a pleasant maltiness on the backend, then into a seltzer water like taste. Mouthfeel is definitely on the thinner side. Definitely not the worst beer I’ve ever had but I am kind of disappointed that I bought a whole 6 pack of it.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
From bottle. Pours a very pale gold with some white head and quite a bit of carbonation. Grainy nose. Bland taste, not much rye, which it could desperately use. Not a lot going on with this. Decent warm weather quencher, but not much else.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear and gold with a thick white foamy head. Good carbonation in the glass. To me, tastes remarkably just like Miller Lite. Has a yeasty backend with a good bit of carbo-bite on the front. The taste is kind of bland, much like Miller Lite.
