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.

Drake (9932) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Total Wine Huntersville, NC. Pours a clear golden color with a thin frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of grainy malts, some toast, grassy hops. The taste is grain, corn and grassy hops. Thin-medium bodied.

scooterbub (889) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - APR 9, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a light gold with a 3 inch white head that slowly fades. Lots of carbonation. Taste is of malt, grain, rye and some grass. Similar clean aroma. Has a decent, clean body. Easy to drink, refreshing and just different enough to make it interesting.

Bottle. A basic run of the mill beer. Not to good, not to bad. Quite drinkable.

jandd1983 (2918) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 8, 2013
It poured a yellow/gold color with a white head. The aroma was of hops and grain. It was light on the body, but still creamy on the palate. The taste was of bread and yeast with very little hops bitterness. Not bad.

ryanscourt (858) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2013 Nice koslch style aroma. Clear golden color. Not the best koslch ive ever had but not bad either. Drinks almost like a white wine, sweet and smooth. Not a bad spring/summer beer. Would prefer a little more grassy/earthy notes to add a little dry balance at the end.

maxwelldeux (4025) - Everett, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark golden color with a smallish white head. Nose is actually very much like so many cheap lagers. Taste is slightly sweet, but also like so many pale lagers. Kinda surprised at the lowish quality.

Oh hey, what’s this? I love Kolsch-style beers, so somehow I’m ignoring that voice in the back of my head asking me "Have you ever actually had a good Leinenkugel beer?" "Big Eddy wasn’t that bad." "Whatever, it’s your tongue." Bottled purchased. Haven’t really had much to eat all day, so decided on a nice light beer before dinner. Pour is lively an slightly overcarbonated... looks refreshing enough... glass approaches nose... sweet, creamy shitty Bud Light? Check. Tastes even slightly worse? Check? Would I much prefer a Coors Light? Check. I fart in your general direction, Mr. Leinenkugel.

TH28 (186) - - APR 5, 2013
Appearance is pale yellow with a creamy white cap. Not much aroma, but hey it’s a kolsch. I do pick up slight pepper from the rye. Taste is ok...rye bite stands out from a traditional kolsch, and after a few drinks I pick up some hints of lemongrass. I can definitely pick up the lemongrass on the finish. Interesting take on a kolsch that seems to get better as it warms

Another permutation from MIller/Leinenkugels. This one is a bit lighter than their regular lager, but has the same grapefruit notes from their standard yeast strain and is not an ale and not a Kölsch. Just another low quality beer at a premium price. If you like Leinies original, you will like this one, otherwise don´t waste your time. Miller/Leinenkugels continues to give you artificial flavors and colors added to their original lager as they expand their product range instead of trying to brew a decent beer.
