Leinie's specialty beers have always been hit or miss for me, and I wasn't going to try the Canoe Paddler Kölsch because there are so many better of the style out there, but the sixer I grabbed had a decent price so I gave it a go.

A -- Very good appearance, clear golden with a long-lasting, off-white head.

S -- Ever so vague spicy noble hops, maybe some light DMS with enough agitation.

T -- Graininess up front, maybe a touch of that rye they're talking about, mildly bitter back with some light breadiness and graininess in the finish that fades fast.

M -- Mouthfeel is light and spritzy with a light body and clean finish.

O -- Overall, I have to wonder what this would taste like side-by-side with Leinie's Original. It has a little more character than most American Adjunct Lagers, but not as much as some of the better Kölsch style beers you can find. I'll probably grab some more of this for patio grilling in mid-summer to see if it's more appealing, but right now it's pretty regular.
