COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Gets a failing grade. Iím not sure what the hype is all about. Itís quite similar to Labattís Blue, and you know what I think of Blue(check out my ratings). Bland and overrated.

Whatever you do donít eat yellow snow. Oh and the beer is good too, but so are other beers, but remember the snow thing!

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 13, 2001
A macro lager that is quite popular in Washington state. Bit of oily complexity on the palate puts it ahead of BudMillerCoors, but not by much. Avoid.

You get what you pay for: mass produced, cheap lager.

Colpitts (59) - Sussex, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAR 15, 2001
Another goodie! This beer is smooth, refreshing, and very little aftertaste. Hard to get in eastren canada. But another one of my favorites!

Strange Brew (157) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2001
Not much in terms of taste or character, but not offensive either. Fine for downing quickly or in mass quantities, I guess.
