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.

poisoneddwarf (1726) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - FEB 3, 2013
12 oz bottle from a six pack. Pours clear pale golden with a medium white fluffy head with decent retention. Aroma is grainy, generic beer. Taste is lightly sweet, grainy, fruity (lemon, berries maybe), dull. The hops come through in the finish a bit stronger after it warms a bit, providing a little bitterness. Some tartness comes through in the finish as well. Creamy mouthfeel, thin body, watery. A really bland beer. Why not make the rye more prominent and make something that’s a little more interesting and exciting? Seems like they played it too safe here.

csaso (1407) - Missouri, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle - bog foamy head, clear light gold color, mildly sweet malt and corn-like aroma and flavor, fairly well balanced for the style with mild hops, nothing special but would be very refreshing on a hot day

ordybill (101) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- has a faint smell of wheat with maybe a floral or citrus backdrop Appearance - A nice clear golden amber color. A nice thick head is generated from the pour but it does not stay long. Taste - The beer has a nice wheat flavor that really commands your attention not an overly bitter brew but a medium grade Palate - Average carbonation with a medium body that left no real aftertaste Overall - A real good beer that has a nice dry feeling. One of my favorite brews from Leinenkugel’s.

What do you get when you combine a style I don’t care for and a brewer I (usually) don’t particularly care for? This, I suppose. Pretty bland and boring. Overcarbonated. Grassy & gassy. I’m probably being a little harsh with my score but I didn’t care to finish my free 12 oz bottle..."

A straight forward kolsch with a nice hoppiness. Very smooth and easy to drink. Pours a light golden with a short, thin head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dmac (4080) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2014
12oz bottle at Mikes. Poured like the Miller Fortune I drank, or tried to drink, last night. Gold body, thin, average sized foamy white head, lots of clinging bubbles. Aroma is adjuncts, grains. ..corn...rice...green grape skins. Medium body, slightly harsh, quicker fading aftertaste thankfully. Flavor isnt as bad as aroma but almost, lots of grains, corn and rice a touch of sweetness. Blah

Light and refreshing summer beer. Somewhat sweet and lacking in bitterness compared to your average Kölsch.

Sledutah (4919) - Utah, USA - JUL 27, 2014
12oz bottle picked up at The Grapevine
Pours clear golden with a small white head that dissipates quickly, no lacing. Aroma is grainy, sweet malts and honey. Taste is malts, grainy, honey with some spiciness
Decent, just a little too sweet to be a good summer beer.

Pours a bright golden with alot of carbonation/effervescence. The aroma is that of pils, grain and light hops. Heavy carbonation evident in the palate. The taste is very non-descript. A bit better than Budweiser. The Appearance is it’s best quality.
