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.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden amber color with a two finger head of bubbly white foam. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave rings of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a grainy and slightly bready smell mixed with a little bit of a lemon and grassy smell. A tiny bit of yeast and rye are there as well rounding out the smell. Taste – The taste begins with a slightly grainy and bready flavor mixed with some caramel and a little bit corn syrup and grass. As the taste moves forward a little bit of a rye flavor works its way onto the tongue and brings with it some citrus and spice flavors of a light pepper and some clove. With some lemongrass coming at the very end, one is left with a bready spiced flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather light and thin with a carbonation level that is a little bit on the higher side. Fairly nice for the style and for making for a rather easy drinking brew even in light of the somewhat odd mix of tastes of the brew. Overall – A decent brew, with a good feel and a decent aroma and feel which made for a crisp and refreshing brew. It does however have a somewhat odd flavor combination, which I did not find all that approachable, but with that said others may like it, so I would say it is least one to give a try to.

A subdued aroma of yeast, pours a clear pale straw color with no real head. A watery feel with a taste of yeast, hints of grass, with a very short lasting yeast finish.

What’s that god-awful phrase people use to say they like something? It "floats my boat" (or something like that?) Yeah, Canoe Paddler didn’t do that for me. It did not "paddle my canoe." (Could that be a new euphemism? I think it has potential as a masturbation euphemism.) It wasn’t as crisp, refreshing, or smooth as I wanted. And really those are the only "criteria" I have for a Kolsch. It’s not truly awful or anything, but it’s not something I’ll have again.

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear pale gold with a thin white head. Lightly sweet aroma with hints of grass and some straw. Flavor is incredibly light. Some light malts and grassy hops with a bit of a watery finish. Not bad but really mild.

RSRIZZO (1986) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 26, 2015
12oz can (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Kölsch glass at 40°. Color is bright gold with mellow carbonation and a thin tight white head. Aroma is faint and slightly sweet giving off a grain scent. It has a light body and crisp mouth feel. Flavor of lemon zest, rye and just a hint of hop spice. After taste is clean with a very mild bitterness showing. Overall it’s a well done Kölsch, but it just too light for my taste.
