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.

coyforce (610) - Virginia, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Weak, watery, and mostly tasteless. A very thin bodied brew that pours a beautiful golden yellow with a nice thin white head. Aroma is skunky just like the faint flavor.

sturmthis (461) - Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2014
12oz bottle. A pale golden color with almost no head. Aroma of lemons. Taste is grassy and ends with the taste of lemons. An easy drinking beer, but just ordinary.

Nothing special about this except it won’t wreck your palate considering it has no real flavor.

JonBob (4) - Holland, Michigan, USA - JUN 2, 2014 does not count
Pilsnery sweet graininess with a mellow lemony citrus note. very low esters. Crystal clear straw color with a quickly dissapating white head. Soft malt character balanced by a smooth bitterness (from a generous use of saaz hops?). Not getting much of the rye spiciness or the fruity esters typical from a kolsh. Light-bodied, well balanced. Low carbonation. Overall a smooth, drinkable beer. Tastes more like an American light lager than a German kolsh. The malt character holds up nicely and carries this beer.

berkshirejohn (4534) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2014
12oz bottle from a Tops store in Hamburg, NY. Straw with a trace of white head; fresh grainy aroma; crisp taste with a nice wieght of grain behind it; and a clean fresh finish. A pleasant summer beer.

triplehopped (37) - - MAY 26, 2014
Poured a clear gold with a small and quickly dissipating white head. Aroma was mildly malt and hay. Taste was light sweet. Light bodied and unexciting on the tongue with a quick finish. Overall, suitable for consumption under the blistering summer sun and not much else; I was left wanting.

CardsPackHawks (97) - Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2014
One of my favorite breweries has produced another enjoyable beer. This Kolsch is easy drinking and light, but has some flavor. A good beer for a hot summer day.

firefly765 (116) - - MAY 26, 2014
12 ounce bottle pours a light straw yellow crystal clear. Minimal Whitehead that disappears quickly. Not much aroma to speak of kind of sort of a melon aroma. Light bodied with a twinge of apricot flavor very low bitterness very easy drinking lawnmower beer.

Beerdedone (2625) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours straw yellow with a thin white head. Aroma was mild with pale malts, grains and corn. Flavor of pale malts, sweet corn, grains, grassy hops and a hint of rye with a watery finish.
