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.

Pours perfectly clear & pale blonde with a huge thick, white, well retained head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is basically like a sack of grain... pretty much just a ton of pungent raw grain. A touch yeasty... but mostly just grain.

The flavor is far more balanced and mellow in comparison to the aroma, a big grainy still, but with some light spicy hop notes, some light malt sweetness... I get a touch of that dreaded breakfast cereal character in the finish, but it’s mild enough that it’s not distracting from the nice things going on in the beer. It’s pretty damned clean tasting beer. It’s not really an especially great version of the style, but it’s an enjoyable enough beer.... for what it’s worth.

Pours off-white head, aroma of cereal and bread, some notes of basement mold. Taste is somewhat sweat and very slightly bitter, quite high in carbonation.

Not a bad kolsch, but the rye only seems to figure on the back of the palate. Typical kolsch appearance with a light head and fairly translucent. Mouthfeel is smooth and pleasant, but perhaps not as effervescent as might be expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

burg326 (3518) - Florida, USA - APR 23, 2013
12 ounce bottle pours a clear yellow color with aromas of light rye, some grain and some lemon. Flavors follow suit, light rye, not much, I expected more rye then I got, ok beer overall.

dwyerpg (4436) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 22, 2013
These guys really don’t make very good beer it seems. This is sweet and a bit lemony without much rye notes. Pale color and mostly hard to drink.

beaz1591 (237) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 15, 2013
Mug. Pale clear gold, lots and lots of head. Smells of hay and some spices. Watered down, taste of hay, bad aftertaste. Probably Leinenkugels worst beer.

unclemattie (4116) - Georgia, USA - APR 14, 2013
12oz twist-off bottle. Pours clear yellow. Smells of corn meal & straw. Tastes of dried hay with a hint of fresh cardboard. Sharp hop bite lingers through the end. A very nice summer beer. Hints of peppery tingle on the tongue as the hop flavor disappears from the palate. (3670)

Draft pours golden with a thick white head. Aroma of malts, grass and a little spice. Taste is malts, bread and a hint of hop bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
