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.

Somewhat like a pilsner with a touch of floral malt and hops. Thin and light in color and flavor. A sharp carbonation and a slight astringent aftertaste that mellowed as it warmed. It actually reminds me an American pilsner, but more flavorful. Not super as a kolsch, but good as a light beer.

12oz bottle BB 6/12/17 poured into a.3L stange at fridge temp 5% ABV. The beer is bright straw yellow with lasting white head. The aroma is slight of rye and fruit. The taste is light with mostly corn and just a bit of fruity flavor and rye spice. No real bitterness (11 IBU). The mouthfeel is thin, highly carbonated and finishes dry. Overall, ok. It's a pretty good hot weather beer, but not a good version of a kolsch.

This beer was much better than I expected, delivering more flavor than many spring/summer beers out there. The beer pours a medium yellow/golden color with decent lacing. Per the style, the ale yeast gives it a fruitiness not found in most lagers. The rye adds some complexity to the flavor, and fairly high carbonation makes it pop on the tongue. This is a really nice and crisp warm weather beer. I could knock 'em down all day.
