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.

Clear golden pour with ring of white head. Smells and tastes a bit corny. Flavor adds good splash of spicy ryeness. Better than most other kolshes i’ve had. LIngering hint of lemon zest on the backend. Meh.

harrymel (1448) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Best by 13MAY13 Light grain yellow with white surface sheet. Smells like a kolsch, corn, grain, clean, touch of earthy hops. Clean, some corn, some rice, some grain, a touch of sweetness early on is countered with a decent bitterness and a cheap finish. Thin with hi carb and a dry finish. This is okay. I’d drink again.

Strangebrewer (791) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2013
bottle. Poured clear straw coloured with a bleach white fading head. Malty, sweet corn aroma. Light body, crisp and refreshing mouthfeel, finishes clean. Fairly mild beer, grainy with a little bready malt.

blipp (5646) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Grainy pale malty base, faint sweetness, and low bitterness. Bland, even for the style.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle:   Pale golden, vibrant and clear, thin sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Mealy nose, very slight cider note.   Soft sweet straw/hay, but with a little tinge of metal or tin.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Soft sweet straw/hay on the finish.   The metal aspect has gone by now.   Lingering malt sweetness.   Finishes better than it starts, but seems pretty boring compared to others.   Not sure I get any of the Rye either.   Meh...

Hangover (1028) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Crystal clear golden pour with a thin white head. Aroma is malty with a lot of bread and grain. Flavor is definitely grainy with bisquit and a slight sweetness. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel, medium carbonation. One dimensional but still definitely drinkable.

hotstuff (3912) - Indiana, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Rated on 08-21-2013 (Bottle) This beer pours a large white smooth head that mostly diminished, transparent body, fair amount of lacing, slow rising carbonation, and a pale yellow hue. The Aroma is malt, some rye, grainy, corn, hint of hops, sweet, and some spice. The Taste is sweet, malty, lightly hoppy, and a hint of rye. The Palate is tingly and this is a light-medium bodied beer. Overall, this beer did not leave a good impression of this beer style as the flavors just did not leave me wanting this beer again.

thedm (4886) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 21, 2013
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized very white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated transparent light yellow orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was musty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of floral honey and hops. Not one that I would likely drink again.

chinchill (1367) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Poured from a 12oz bottle, dated 3 June 2013, into a Belgian snifter. A: The beer is yellow-gold color in color with excellent clarity, topped by a thin white head most of which fades quickly. Some lacing gets left on the glass. This is a lightly flavored and delicate style of beer, so the addition of rye could easily change the character. And so it does, I think. The aroma is spicy for style. seemingly due to both hops and the rye. The flavor too is spicy for style, but not so much as to completely transform the kolsch or overpower the malts. Has a clear hint of lemon. Slightly sweet. M: Crisp; light body; near medium carbonation. O: A relatively spicy version of the style, yet without being more flavorful than average.
