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.

Another fine product from Leinenkugel! I was very sad when I ran out of this. I need to pick up some more soon. Great brew! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2013
On tap at Twisted Jimmy’s. Very mild aroma - a bit of beany hops and mild pale malt sweetness. Light golden blond clear with thin white head. Light body with medium-high carbonation. Starts with light carbonic acidity, mild pale malt sweetness ,and light beany hop flavor. Mild flavors overall, with some carbonic bite to it. Some honey and dusky grain. Watery finish, clean after. Nothing really wrong with it, but not a good kölsch example.

This is a horrible attempt at the style. This tastes like an adjunct lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle. Straw color, with a thin, bubbly head. Light rye bread, floral and resinous hops, cloves, and some biscuity notes. Light sweetness up front, with a pretty sharp bitterness through the finish. Light body, sticky, and fairly lively carbonation. This is just a little to hoppy and forward to be really refreshing, but still a light and relatively flavorful beer.

On tap at the local pizza place in Hartland. Pours a yellowish/golden with a white head. Aroma is a bit bready and a bit fruity. Taste follows. No real distinct taste or flavor here. Not annoying or bad, just not good either.

dekester1 (324) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Poured a nice mid-gold with quite a nice thick head that faded to lacing. Aroma was of malts and hay. Taste was a unique mix of malts, rye, and hops - mild bitterness. Palate was acceptable. Overall, not a bad brew, especially after mowing the lawn.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Sulfur smell is a turnoff. Pours light corn tassel yellow with a rapidly receding small white head. Taste is malty with little hops influence.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2014 average tasting beer with just a slight kick of unique flavor that I can?t put my finger on...floral perhaps... ever so slightly sweet...light on the hops. crisp finish x2

DuffMan (7025) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle. Blonde body, average white head. Aroma is sweet grains with light sulfur and light yeast. Sweet grainy palate, bland, plain. Calling this a kolsch is a fucking joke. I have yet to have a Leinenkugels beer that impresses me.
