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.

Bottle. Aroma of light corn and skunk with some pale malts. Taste is very smooth and crisp. Not too much flavor, but nothing too offensive. Very nice for a warm day. Finish has some light hops and not much else. Pretty standard pale lager.

Hardly any aroma. Some malts in there. Watered down texture, little flavour. Typical poor pale lager.

Clear golden appearence. Just very light bitterness, typical for a lager beer.

Cool lager, refreshing. Sour lemon malting. Corn sour mash. Tasty after a round of golf at least

Enjoyed a 11.5 FL. OZ. - 340 ML bottle of this @ a friend’s house in Yakima, WA. Poured from the Blue/White Glazier labeled bottle into a 16oz Pint Glass. Has F05G21 on the front of the label (hardly visible) but doesn’t seem like a sign of a best by date... Aroma- Almost no aroma present... Only thing I found was a sweet, watered down malt character. Below average for the style but should be some other things here! Appearance- Pours a .5 finger head that dies quick. Has a pale straw colored body with great clarity. Leaves a bit of lacing behind. Flavor- Very dry and has a sweet malty taste all the way through. No bitterness or hop, very average. Mouthfeel- Light Bodied, High Carbonation, Corn, and this is all... Overall Impression- A decent adjunct, but nothing special. Its always fun comparing different lagers from other countries and this one fell a bit below average. Give it a try yourself!

3431ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head and no lacing. Aroma is light cereal grains and mild hops. Taste is grainy malt sweetness with a moderate dose of hop bitterness and a fairly clean finish. Light bodied with average carbonation. Another typical macro lager.

Pours a pale yellow colour with a clear body. Thick white foamy head. Aroma of sweet malt and trace of hops. Taste of sweet grain and trace of bitterness. Light body. Medium-high carbonation. Crisp, clean, refreshing.

Crappy just a brand name and ye everyone seems to love it. Beer almost always tastes flat.

Metalchopz (2263) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2012
Originally rated May 2005. British Columbia’s favorite beer pours a pale golden colour with a foamy white head. The retention is actually not bad and the lace is great. Carbonation is active with tiny bubbles. The aroma is nice, with some sweet malt and maybe hop. The mouthfeel is crisp and clean. Taste like water, with some slight bread in the background. The mouthfeel is crisp and clean. If you want swill, you got it.
