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.

(Backlog) 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.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. A- Corn, grain, grass, citrus. A- Yellow color, clear liquid,white head. T- Slightly bitter, slightly malty, rye, corn. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, crisp finish. O- A unique Kolsch with a crisp finish. The rye throws it off a little for me.

Somewhat novice to buying bottled Kolsch style beers, so I can’t give a educated description. Had what was described as "Kosch" in France several years ago and not a fan of whatever it was. This one... I LIKE VERY MUCH.

ROBC3366 (665) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 20, 2013
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.

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 (865) - 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 (6125) - 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 (6300) - 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 (1059) - 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.
