look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A - Exactly what you'd expect: pale, golden, clear. Very nice amount of bubbling.

S - A hint of banana, which wasn't expected, but other than that, very little aroma. Pilsner-y.

T - Pretty decent. Not particularly crisp. A little bit of sweetness, especially as you continue (perhaps that's the added "malt" to which they allude). Not very hoppy at all, not particularly bright; I expected a hoppier drink. This might not be a bad beer overall, but it's a terrible example of a Kölsch. Score reflects my indecision on that front.

M - A slight coat, mostly thin, but actually a smoother drink than the average Kölsch.

O - This isn't bad at all, but it's entirely not a Kölsch style beer. Where do you come down on the score, then: drinkability, or accuracy? Somewhere in the middle? Regardless, this can be a tasty and refreshing Summer beer, no question.

The canoe paddler is a decent kolsch style beer...i like the addition of rye. The beer poured a clear golden with thin white head that left a spotty lace. The scent was minimal at best....faint citrus and malt. The tatse was well balanced....the rye helped the beer finish clean off the pallet and sslightly dry. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it is a good beer and perfect for the summer months.
