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.

Very clear adjunct lager appearance. Light pilsner aroma. Some citrusy flavors added. Taste is very similar. Pretty dull. ---Rated via iPhone

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.

Beerathon (960) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2014
Color- yellow with light golden hue, and nice head for a lager. Flavor- crisp, clean, bit of lemon, touch of hop bitterness. Enjoyable.

Aroma was slight wheat and/or rye. A mild mild mild hop scent came through. Tastes sweet, yeasty. Barely a head and what head formed is completely gone. Low carbonation which gives this beer a flat feel. Easy to drink but bland. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cybercat (2993) - Georgia, USA - APR 6, 2014
Pours a clear pale golden with a very thick, if not too persistent, ivory head - typical of a kolsch. Aroma is strong, yeasty and malty, with just a whiff of - wet dog? Flavor is crisp and malty with a yeasty underpinning and a hint of apple. Refreshing, if a bit wan. Texture is thin, though fizz does persist a bit, leaving a crisp and clean finish. More for sipping on a hot day, or as an accompaniment to lunch, then for serious drinking.

lb4lb (2224) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 3, 2014
Pours slightly reddish gold, if i remember correctly, and I don’t really remember if i do remember correctly. smell was a bit metallic and a bit of rye malt. nothing too exciting, but not terrible. Drinkable, but I wouldn’t seek it out.

Overall average beer. Nothing special. Would never buy this unless it came in some sampler pack ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hockeybeerguy (916) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a clear yellow colored body, decent amount of carbonation is seen rising at a moderate pace, quickly dieing one finger white foamy head, moderate amount of lightly clingy foamy lacing. The smell was malty, some light rye. The taste was sweet through the previously mentioned flavors, dry sweet aftertaste, dry finish. The palate was light; sessionable; though adequately carbonated for the style, its still slightly felt. Overall, this is decent for the style, and decent to me. Though there are tastier Kolsches out there, this isn’t bad for a cheaper option that is pretty light, I’d probably grab another when in a pinch.

ExpendableHero (728) - Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Clear golden beer with a thin, white head. Faint aromas of grass and skunk funk. Tastes of some wheat, weak malted barley, dry rye, and dirty water. Bittersweet, crisp finish. Refreshing and in-offensive. A decent beer for a hot day.

Really not much of a Kolsch, let alone a beer. Not sure if the rye is supposed to add something constructive here. Pours blonde, some crisp lager-like barley. Not much else. Bottle for free at work so can’t really complain - I got what I paid for.
