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.

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.

trujahwarrior (506) - Monroe, Washington, USA - AUG 4, 2013
12oz. bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear golden color with a fizzy white head that leaves light lacing. Smells of sweet malt, biscuit, and rye. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is light and creamy with good carbonation. Pretty average for an easy drinking summer beer. The use of rye malts are nice but doesn?t help it much.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4831) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a pale yellow color with a medium sized creamy white head that left decent lacing.The aroma was tangy with faint notes of hot peppers and citrus. The flavor was water with a hint of hot pepper, citrus and a bit of yeastiness. Short yeasty citrus and hot pepper finish. Light to medium body. Unimpressive.

jredmond (5250) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear copper golden body with thin white lacing. Aroma is plain grain lager, stinky corn and light metal notes. Mouthfeel is thin and carbonated with similar notes following through in the flavors. Worse than just boring and bland, borderline offensive and hard to finish.

Brewers in Cologne would soon be out of business if they’d try to pass this on as Kölsch. Run-of-the-mill American light beer, best to be drunk near frozen. Might be sort of refreshing that way. The label isn’t bad, though.

Bottle. Aroma of grain and spices. Hint of hops. Taste is slightly bitter. Thin body.

VenomousViper (25) - Oak Hill, West Virginia, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Pours a golden color much like the Macro brews. No head really at all. Aroma of corn and wheat. Supposed to be a kolsch but I’m not getting it. Much like a macro lager, taste pretty much absent, only decent when ice cold and you can’t taste anything. No bitterness or hop flavor like a Kolsh should be. Tastes like Michelob Ultra. Expected a little better than average from Leinenkugels but got average.
