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.

The look is golden in color, white head, and very clear. The smell is corn, malt, and boring lager like. The taste is malt, weàk, and basic.

Very pale gold color with a thin foamy white head. Aroma of wet grass and a hint of rye. Flavor is crisp grain with a creamy bread dough background and a dry herbal finish. Light bodied with a sparkling carbonation that adds to the crispness. Maybe a hint of citrus would have pushed this beer over the top but it still makes a very good summer beer.

TomTron (363) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Pours a clear golden with a thin white head that doesn’t last. Smells like most macro swill with maybe a hint of some floral hops. Tastes like a pale lager that was made with slightly better ingredients but not too much else added. It’s drinkable but there’s nothing else really worth noting.

Pretty damn bland. Might be good for luring macro drinkers into the fold but there are far better Kolsches out there. Hmm, now I want a kolache.

Pale golden color out of the tap with a thin white head. Thin corn sweetness in the nose with a little acetate. Thin beer with some corn, cracker and chemical notes. Some lemon in the finnish. I suppose it may be a good macro replacement, but it isn’t a very good kolsch.

12 oz bottle from build-a-sixer. Pours a pale yellow with a creamy head. Has a nice Kolsch-y smell to it, with a bit of hard water and light, bready malts. Sits up on the tongue nicely, though it is hard to get excited about this style in the first place.It does have a light malt taste, plus a little spice from rye. Basic German hop bitterness. More of the nice stuff Leinie’s can make when they’re not up the wazoo with pink fruit weisses. Seems to have been packaged kind of early for a summer seasonal.

Clean taste with citrus hints. Almost like a modern domestic with a bold local brewery appeal. Fun all night beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rumproasts (2734) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 6, 2013
bottle. golden with small head. perfectly mediocre kolsch. everything that i look for in a good kolsch is here, but it’s just watered down and/or muted. that said, it’s not bad.

Not a bad kolsch overall. Dry mouthful with a crisp finish. Good appearance and aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Clear pale gold with a light head. Light grassy aroma. Nice effervescence in the mouth. Clean crisp flavor - wheat, some hops and a hint of sourness. Nice beer for the warmer months.
