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.

Crisp refreshing summer beer, nothing special but just a notch above the typical summer lager, enough to make it worth drinking when the options are limited.

Pour is a light amber. Aroma is faint but sweet malt. Taste is balanced. Finish is crisp and clean. Average. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

My first Kolsch beer.

Pours a straw color. Barely any head to speak of. What head it does have leaves pretty good lacing. I’m not impressed.

Smells great. It’s very bright. Very clean and citrusy. Oh, like spring! I don’t know exactly what it is about this, but it smells amazing.

Doesn’t taste as citrusy as it smells. Doesn’t really taste like a lager. But, it’s really good. It’s well balanced. Is it sweet, is it bitter? I can’t discern anything in particular, but again, it’s really good.

Mouthfeel is great. It’s very light, very drinkable. Almost like a wine cooler. Finishes maybe a tad bitter. Wow! It;s really really good.

Overall, if not for the poor showing in the pour, this could easily be one of the best beers I’ve ever had. It’s delicious. It’s fresh. It’s clean. It smells great. It finishes great! Not only do I want more of this, I want more of the style!

Bottled boring yellow. Skunk aroma plus the barest hints of rye. Meh. Nothing really good.

bennetporter (253) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Pours a kind of piss color from a bottle, quick flash of effervescence with little retention or lacing. Aroma is barnyardy, flavor is the same with some biscuits thrown in, like someone just threw some biscuits into a barn, like, here you go barn. I’m a little drunk.

Aggiebob (179) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle: It has a straw yellow color with a white head and strong carbonation. The aroma is barnyard/Hay and the flavor is grain and slight bit of lemon. Very light body with a thin tongue feel. The finish is slightly dry.

Bosco (222) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Clear lemon yellow with thin whispy head and lacing. Missing the bitter kick I was hoping to get from the rye. Otherwise not very complex with a sweet finish. $9.99/multi sixer at Wegmans Leesburg VA

Lightrider (313) - Bristol, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2015
Bottle into a larger glass. Pour is a light golden color. Aroma is low but sweet malts. Taste is rich and smooth. Finish is crisp and clean.

Strykzone (5380) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2015
Pint at Joe’s Pizza in Edwardsville. Very clear golden with only a little foam on top. Grassy with soft fruit. A tiny honey flavor at the finish. Soft malts and lemon.

Draft. Golden pout. This isn’t a koelsch. It is a very fruity golden ale that is pleasant enough.

Good. Not overly impressed but good. I like the light rye finish. Would probably be better cold (drinking room temp) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
