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.

Pours a golden yellow/amber. Aromas of lemon, grains, celery. Flavor is crisp, dry, sweet malt, and a mild hop.

superspak (5685) - Michigan, USA - MAY 9, 2016
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 6/20/2016. Pours fairly crystal clear pale golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, spicy rye, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of bready/rye malt and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, spicy rye, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, biscuit, spicy rye, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice robustness and balance of bready/rye malt and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from carbonation and bitterness as well. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a nice Kolsch style. All around good robustness and balance of bready/rye malt and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Now I liked this one, but I’m a fan of the rye’s. Lots of good malty rye flavors here would recommend.

Where and how: bottle, tasting
Aroma: medium intense, with higher pitch. Malty sweetness with herbal hops. ..not most refined.
Appearance :
Top: mid sized, white cap. Some lace shown.
Base: clear, gold
Palate : soft, medium bodied. Easy going with its lighter carbonation. Sadly, fades quickly.
Taste: softer walls, clean with softer mid. Lacking crispness, is it rye?
other notes clean, refreshing brew but lacking a bit of crisp lagery vibe that Kolsch has.

12 oz bottle: Aroma has got a lightly malt notes with a bready texture. Appearance is a clear golden with a white head that diminishes quickly. Taste has got a lightly grassy hops with a bready malt texture but very drinkable. Overall, decent stuff but nothing special. Cheers!

At my company party: pours golden with white head. Weak aroma. Easy drinking. Ever so slightly sweet. What rye? Plus if you got rue doesn’t it make it not a kolsch? Oh well. This jawn was meh.

Bottle. Golden in color. Malt and Cereal grain aroma. This beer taste like Fruity Pebbles. And that pretty much sums it up.

Nothing special here. Just a changeup for my beer fridge. Not great, but not bad. Subtle sweet. Reminds me of MGD, but way better
