3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
One of the better pale lagers I’ve tried, cereal in nature, but smooth and mild, and tastes really good. Surprised, but pleasantly so. Cereal grains mainly in aroma and taste, Mouthfeel is light, but not watery. Refreshing, and easy to drink.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle pours a golden yellow color with a thin white head that leaves ok lacing. smells of sweet malt and light hops. Tastes of the same things in the smell. mouthfeel is light and chewy with decent carbonation. Overall not bad for a canadian macro lager. One of my favorites as far as macro lagers go.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Blonde très pâle, mousse blanche à la surface. Odeurs attendues de maïs et de sucres, avec un fond de céréales blondes. En bouche, les sucres sont encore puissants, mais on distingue les céréales, bien que le mélange lui-même soit horriblement générique. Pas trop pétillante, démontrant une certaine saveur, on peut la classer légèrement au-dessus de la moyenne de son insipide catégorie.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Used to be my favorite beer...when I was 19. Good memories aside, it’s actually not a bad beer at all. As usual with any lager/pilsner like this, it’s best from the bottle.
Aroma sucks - has a sour smell; not good. Appearance is standard for a lager. Taste is more bitter than, say, Molson Canadian (which is quite grainy) or Budweiser (which has a light sweetness to it). Ice cold, I find that Kokanee can’t be beat for its kind; truly, there’s nothing more refreshing on a hot day than an ice-cold Kokanee. But if it’s not nice and chilled, it’s not very good. As a session beer, it’s good though. Served in a frosty pint, nothing beats it for its type.

Come on, it’s not that bad. But is it just an urban myth that every once in a while, a battle would have a sasquatch on it? That is the big rumor here in Portland. I had this on tap at Jerry’s house who finally was able to have a keg after a year. It took his wife that long not to be pissed about all the Trumers Pils he drank during back surgery.

Not good, though perfect for sucking down in quantity after tiring of the sweet but potent mixed drinks at a Stampede-week happy hour. So kudos for that.

Plain, about what you would expect it to taste like after examining its pale yellow consistency

Bottle. A clear, slightly pale golden beer topped by a decent, white head. The aroma is mostly on the grainy side, some fruityness kicking in as well. Medium to thin on the palate, too sweet I think, with a faint bitterness and some fruity hints. Short finish. Except for the sweetness, it’s a decent pale lager I think, but there’s way too many other options out there. 130704

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle...who's going to put this in a glass? Appearance, well, I'm guessing that it's golden and effervescent. Aroma...lagery...this rating is purely going to be on taste, I think; and I don't imagine that'll be a good thing. Taste is skunky, some straw, almost no hops. Where are the hops, Columbia Brewing Company? A typical Canadian lager that reminds me of my late teens.
