Leinenkugel's Canoe Paddler 6pk bottles $8.99(OH)

12 oz twist off brown bottle poured into a stemless white wine glass. freshness date marked in yellow on bottle neck.

crisp,clear,pale golden color.pours with a three finger bright white head the makes its self scarce real quick. a one finger skim layer remains on top. however next to no lacing is left.

i smell very light notes of hops. slightly floral. grassy. no hint of rye at all. smells kind of like a miller lite, but slightly more complex.

it tastes decent. it may smell like a miller lite but it tastes better. grainy, grassy, weak malts. sweet and crisp at first. once you swallow a dryness lingers over your entire palate. a non bitter finish that's decent.

mouth feel is very light, again almost like a miller lite. not bitter, but a dryness lingers.

overall i was disappointed with this kugels brew. its good, but Sam Adams escape route makes this taste like water. This is only my second kolsch brew. so i don't have much to compare it to.
