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.

Cutman260 (1) - Norwalk, Iowa, USA - FEB 10, 2014 does not count
Lighter gold color, medium head, slightly fruity aroma, slight bitters, mildly yeasty on the foot.

EyeAmBaldman (461) - Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Pours clear and gold with a thick white foamy head. Good carbonation in the glass. To me, tastes remarkably just like Miller Lite. Has a yeasty backend with a good bit of carbo-bite on the front. The taste is kind of bland, much like Miller Lite.

seymour (2001) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Poured from 12oz brown bottle into a Willybecher glass. Clear golden colour with weak white foam. Weak malt, hops, and yeast aspects too. None of the distinct Kölsch traits: grainy, slight fruitiness, peppery noble hops. Not terrible, but sure seemed like a bland mass produced pale lager to me. It’s too bad: I like Leinenkugel’s and I love a good Kölsch, this is a real missed opportunity.

Ed5388 (3448) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2014
2oz sample at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Pours a light golden color with a small white head of foam. Taste and aroma were identical. Not much going on. Grainy, yeasty, with some light citrus.

bottle. clear gold. small head. kind of lifeless. sweeten cereal pilsner malt aroma with some grassy hops. a bit tart, but i think its just a spicyness from the rye. its ok but the appearance isn’t very exciting.

2.3
daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Pale yellow with a white head. Pretty blah and bland beer. Stale hops, pale malts, crackery, biscuit notes.

2.8
bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is sweet with hints of malt. Flavor is quite sweet, almost juicy at times, with malty notes and citrus with no noticeable rye. Very light body with medium carbonation. Not great.

2.4
drowland (8629) - Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2014
1/4/14. 12oz bottle from Publix. Crystal clear golden copper pour, looks like apple juice in a way, under a small off-white head that fades to a small ring and doesn’t lace. Light, mildly fruity aroma, apples and pale malts, hints of caramel, straw, hay, etc. Plain flavor, malty, pale malts, doughiness, barely a hint of spice, straw, grassiness, hay, and a lingering touch of sweet corn. Meh.

jkwalking05 (4734) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2013
(Backlog) The look is golden in color, white head, and very clear. The smell is corn, malt, and boring lager like. The taste is malt, weàk, and basic.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. A- Corn, grain, grass, citrus. A- Yellow color, clear liquid,white head. T- Slightly bitter, slightly malty, rye, corn. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, crisp finish. O- A unique Kolsch with a crisp finish. The rye throws it off a little for me.
