Solid kolsch in my book. Nothing tops drinking kolsch in Koln, but this is one of the better versions I've had stateside. Hit the spot in the summer. Reissdorf travels pretty well to the states though, and remains my go-to.

Appearance: Clean golden, with a thick white head and thin lace.

Aroma: Grains and malts. Slightly adjunct somehow.

Taste: Sweet and malty, but not over-the-top and not bad. A tinge adjunct in the flavor, but this one remains refreshing and light and better than the more mainstream lagers.

Pours a murky brown color with a creamy head not uncommon for the style. Smells of rice and other AAL-style grains. Tastes very grainy with slight malt. No hop aroma or presence in the beer - at least none identifiable to the palate. Oily mouthfeel that prevents the beer from finishing clean and crisp. Overall, not a bad beer, just not the best Kolsch I have ever had.

Pours a clear pale yellow color with fizzy white head. Light cereal grains, some sweetness, and some grassy notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with a cereal grain sweetness.

Canoe Paddler is one of the best from this brewery......at least in my opinion. It is light and refreshing. A good one to session on a hot summer day.
