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.

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.

Had this one while I was renewing my insurance. It actually made the insurance seem interesting by comparison. Just OK but pretty boring.

Meh, it's a mild beer. Touch of rye which adds nothing yet distracts. I'd rather have something else in the future. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle. Pretty good beer but vanishes a little too quickly from the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HeistAlmighty (1111) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 11, 2013
355ml bottle. Darkish gold, filtered, small, white, short lived head. Pretty generic amber lager taste and aroma. Didn’t taste very much rye. Better than most macro lagers, but not that interesting.

This beer is nothing more than Miller Light sold under a different label (I’m almost convinced). If I wanted to drink Miller Light, I would buy Miller Light. This is just overpriced Miller Light. The beer is profoundly anemic and has a horrible off-note that reminds me of mildew. It is NOT a Kölsch! It is crap, don’t ever buy under any circumstances, even just to rate on this website.

Bottle from Publix Supermarket, Kissimmee, Florida. A very pale golden beer with a sweet light toffee flavour, vanilla notes and a creamy caramel finish.

This beer reminds me of a rolling rock without the "skunky" flavor. Pretty decent lawnmower-pale ale combo! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours yellow with no head. Aroma is pure yeast. Taste is fairly crisp with light malt and more yeast. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour from a can. Light golden in color. Refreshing - not much to this. "A touch of rye" might be litteral. I can’t really taste any hops of the three specialty hops added. Meh.
