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.

ChainGangGuy (4489) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 9, 2013
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

MAY0613 marked on the bottle neck.

Appearance: Pours out a clear, light yellow body with a medium-small, tight, white head.

Smell: Minor malts with a bit of grain, a dash of corn sugar, and modest hop hints.

Taste: Ultra faint, ineffusive maltiness with a slight touch of rye and light cereal sweetness. Lacking hops, low bitterness. Light finish with a light, lingering hint of malt liquor gankiness.

Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: A weak offering, a rather poor Kölsch. Didn’t finish this one.

Bottle. Pours clear yellow/gold with thin, fizzy white head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is cereal malt, barnyard funk, yeast, light mold, rotten eggs, and light apples. Flavor is straw malt, corn, light bread, light pear, and faint grassy hops; crisp, dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Bottle. Pours clear pale gold with a small, rapidly dissipating white, fizzy head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is sweet Pils malt, lightly fruity corn, and spicy hops. Flavor is sweet malt, light hops and bitterness, a faint fruitiness and a sweet finish. Light body and carbonation.

Not a bad beer by any means, despite the reviews. I’ve not drank many kolsch style beers however I do think this is a tasty beer and enjoy the slight rye taste.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Pours a pretty yellow gold with a pure white smallish head. Nose is hops and grain. Light on the body, but still quite creamy on the palate, the taste is bread and yeast with very little hops bitterness. A very smooth and satisfying beer that pairs well with smoke turkey sandwiches.

Suttree (5393) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 8, 2013
I seemed to like this more than most. Perhaps I was in a generous mood? At any rate, It seemed that there were some grassy, corny notes, and some light sweetness. Nice dry finish, which I think can be attributed to the rye.

shrubber85 (8580) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle. Corn malt and hay aroma. Pale yellow with large white head. Mildly sweet corn/barley malt and hay flavor. Light body - almost like a Koelsch but only if you dumped a Miller GD in it.

jflopsu (750) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2013
UPDATED: APR 9, 2013 Yellowish tint with little white head. Smells grassy. Tastes similar to Coors. Not my favorite from Leinenkugel. Awful crappy malty aftertaste that lingers. Awful beer.

beerbaaron (1552) - Arizona, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Pale yellow. Small white head. Smells buttery, grassy, corny. Tastes like a slightly sweeter version of a generic macro, but with a little better body. Clean finish. Refreshing at least.

fidelis83 (2125) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Clear, pale yellow-gold pour with a thin ring of white head. Sweet corn and rice aroma with some boozy, fruity and grassy, plant notes. Tastes of more of the same, but a bit cleaner than the aroma indicates, light bready yeast and cereal to the finish. Light, off dry feel, with a dry, slightly slick finish and light, but slightly sharp carbonation. Pretty much a cheap Pale Lager on ale yeast, or at least some ingredients to make it seem somewhat fruity.
