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.

Bamsen78 (3078) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle at America Strikes Back, Ulfborg. Pours clear light golden with small light head. Clear aroma of yeast, hops and paper, with subtle malty notes. Sweetish, malty flavour, with a refreshing flair of citrus to it, and some notes of skunk just to wake one up from a dream. Bittersweet and cardboardlike aftertaste. Could be better, especially without the perfumed note at the end.

This definitely makes for a damn decent lawnmower beer, which is more than I can say about a lot of craft beers. It claims to be a koelsch w/ rye which isn’t really a thing but I can deal w/ it. It is more like a koelsch than most brewpub varieties. It would not be surprised to find this was actually a lager though. I see no mention of ale yeast on the package and there’s no real fruity yeast character at all. It pours a golden yellow color w/ almost no head save a ring of fizzy bubbles. The nose is hoppy--can’t really pick out any specific hop flavors though--and also has a good waft of fresh baked bread. This has a nice doughy malt character and a refreshing lemony character is brought out by the extremely vigorous carbonation. I think in most other styles this carbonation would be way too much but it works OK in such a light beer but maybe is covering up some nuance that you might notice otherwise. This is a pretty darn good beer. I have come to expect things out of Leinenkugel’s regulars to be pretty bland and useless but this has some real character to it.

stevoj (2066) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Surprisingly good, and faithful to the style. Pale gold with very active carbonation keeps airy head aloft. Cereal aroma and taste, but that is expected for the style. Light and refreshing, short and clean finish. Prost!

jjuf1853 (1233) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear, golden yellow with a decent sized, but short lived white head. Aroma has nice malty notes and a hint of rye. Similar flavor as well with some hop bitterness coming through in the tail end of the finish. Sessionable with enough flavor to keep it interesting compared to lesser macro beers.

Christpuncher (1098) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2014
An okay beer at best. Very light flavored lager with a bitter finish. Pours light yellow in color and smells like a old style. Had at bw3. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can 5/4/14 (Discount Liquor-Waukesha)-50° in Lager Glass-Pours a clear light golden with a big white head. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of the same with a bit of rye. This light bodied brew is well balanced and fits the bill for a hot summer day.

12 oz bottle. I’m not quite sure why people are hating on this brew. I like it. It’s light on the start and the finish and honestly I thinks its perfect to drink on while working in the heat of the summer.
