Kokanee is a 5.0 percent alcohol (by volume) lager that is smooth, clean and lightly hopped. It is brewed with mountain stream fed water and a blend of 3 malts and features a unique combination of superior Western-grown North American hops. Brewed in the Kootenay Mountains of British Columbia by the Columbia Brewing Company, Kokanee is British Columbia's most popular beer over the last 10 years. Since its introduction to the Northwest U.S. in the summer of 1994, many people have discovered and enjoyed Kokanee's cool, crisp, glacier fresh taste.

Hard to find in the Midwest, Id take this over Blue any day. Id liken it to the Michelob of Canada.

I must admit that I had this beer at its best. Had just hiked six miles to see a glacier in Alaska and came back hot and thirsty. Had this on ice at the end of the trail. Two went down smooth and good. Actualy very crisp and light. Not a bad beer just unremarkable. A must have after a glacier visit. :-)

This may have been a really old bottle lying around the house- you know how it goes. Needless to say I didnt finish more than a few sips.

This tastes like overcarbonated piss water. It is the Canadian version of Budweiser, yet it has no past sentimental value to me.

This beer is one of the best lager beers in my opinion, I wish they would bring it over to Europe, for being a north american lager it is good tasting and has a nice aftertaste

Very light-golden and clear, with a head that disappears almost as soon as you finish pouring. Assertive and crisp mouthfeel, however light in flavor. Some cooked corn flavors. Otherwise, rather flavorless. Ultra light hops, which, if I had to describe, Id say they were very subtle and slightly flowery. Little in the aftertaste. If you like crisp and light, this might be your beer. I did not find any off-flavors, just nothing too exciting.

Light gold color, small head. Mild hops and malts. A mild, somewhat hoppy pilsner. Nice balance of hops and malts. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is hoppy, slightly bitter.
