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.

Nothing special about this except it won’t wreck your palate considering it has no real flavor.

JonBob (5) - Holland, Michigan, USA - JUN 2, 2014 does not count
Pilsnery sweet graininess with a mellow lemony citrus note. very low esters. Crystal clear straw color with a quickly dissapating white head. Soft malt character balanced by a smooth bitterness (from a generous use of saaz hops?). Not getting much of the rye spiciness or the fruity esters typical from a kolsh. Light-bodied, well balanced. Low carbonation. Overall a smooth, drinkable beer. Tastes more like an American light lager than a German kolsh. The malt character holds up nicely and carries this beer.

12oz bottle from a Tops store in Hamburg, NY. Straw with a trace of white head; fresh grainy aroma; crisp taste with a nice wieght of grain behind it; and a clean fresh finish. A pleasant summer beer.

Poured a clear gold with a small and quickly dissipating white head. Aroma was mildly malt and hay. Taste was light sweet. Light bodied and unexciting on the tongue with a quick finish. Overall, suitable for consumption under the blistering summer sun and not much else; I was left wanting.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2016 One of my favorite breweries has produced another enjoyable beer. This Kolsch is easy drinking and light, but has some flavor. A good beer for a hot summer day.

12 ounce bottle pours a light straw yellow crystal clear. Minimal Whitehead that disappears quickly. Not much aroma to speak of kind of sort of a melon aroma. Light bodied with a twinge of apricot flavor very low bitterness very easy drinking lawnmower beer.

Bottle. Pours straw yellow with a thin white head. Aroma was mild with pale malts, grains and corn. Flavor of pale malts, sweet corn, grains, grassy hops and a hint of rye with a watery finish.

5/24/2014: Leinenkugel’s Canoe Paddler Kolsch-Style with Rye... Light and crisp, fruity and bready, spicy and slightly floral/grassy, mild bitterness and good effervescence. Okay overall, not great and mostly unmemorable. 12 fl. oz. bottle (AUG1114). Rating #210 for this beer.

Ibrew2or3 (8557) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 21, 2014
12oz twist off cap bottle the delivers clear gold liquid into my glass that supports a thin white head. The aroma is grainy and then it has a mix of sugar sweet malts and floral hops. At the edge of the aromatics there seems to be a slight lemon to lime like sensation. OK, smells a bit sweet but not hateful. The taste starts thick an sweet for the style with sugary sweet malts and really nothing else redeeming going on here. This just stays sugar sweet for the most part. Aside from that I notice sweet fruity esters that are a bit pear like to go along with some faint grainy malts. This is not a Kölsch. This is way too sweet.
