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.

Light golden in color. Large foamy head, white in color. Crisp and light palate/taste - goes down very smooth.

This is one solid American Standard. There is no rice and over-carbonated taste like Coors or Bud. No skunk. What you get is a very light, smooth and refreshing taste - with just a touch of sweet malt. Yeah, its not a very flavorful beer, but it goes down very smooth. For an AS, this is great!

Goes down easy. No notable characteristics, just an average beer.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2004 This is a very refreshing beer. Surprisingly balanced with a thick, cereal nose on it, followed by a clean smooth body that is medium-light. I must say this is a great beer to drink in large quantities. Has a honey taste that I dont mind, though i usually hate honey beers.

A horrible excuse for a beer. I had 4 left over from a party, and I could barely finish one. In all honesty, I wanted to vomit. No redeeming qualities.

One hell of a beer all around. A friend gave me a bottle at a party the other night and I know that this beer will be on my shoping list for the next big party!

Not bad. Itís better than American cheap beer, but itís still cheap beer, only expensive, because itís imported.

Had several of these the other day, first ones in years. Well carbed. Goes down smooth. Nothing objectionable here. Guess thats why I had all 6.

Nothing remarkable about this beer. It goes down easy, but so do cheaper domestics. Good way to get drunk in Canada where itís cheaper.
