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.

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 (309) - 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 (1078) - 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 (6638) - 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.

Crisp refreshing summer beer, nothing special but just a notch above the typical summer lager, enough to make it worth drinking when the options are limited.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAY 3, 2013
12oz bottle. Rating #101. Clear yellow with a white head. Crisp grainy aroma, light pepper. Clean and easy to drink, light little spice, nice stuff. (2724)

bagalagalaga (111) - Indiana, USA - APR 29, 2013
Very average, only a little more to it than a typical domestic light beer. It’s still a pretty good value for a six pack, but not very memorable. I like it better than the lemon-spiked summer seasonals though.

Leinenkugel’s Canoe Paddler has a thick, slightly off-white head, a clear, highly bubbly, gold appearance, and a bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is faint, but one can pick up some sweet and sour grain. Taste is of the same, with a touch of pepper. Mostly, though, you get water on this. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Leninekugel’s Canoe Paddler finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, dry, and pretty much devoid of flavor. There’s just not much with this one. RJT
