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.

12 oz. bottle. pours the clearest of yellows, white cap. nose is sweet corn broth, little bitters. mouth is clean, while brothy, ending with a dry light finish. overall clean and easy tasting, with an overly long lasting astringent finish.

On tap. Yellow pour with a white top. Almost no scent probably because it is served so cold. Taste, what there is, is light straw malts.

Can (355ml) on a plane. Pours a clear gold with a large fluffy white head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is sweet and corny, quite sugary and a bit vegetal -- not good at all. Watery flavour is sugary sweet with a light bitter finish. Quite carbonated. Average bodied. Your standard Canadian macro Lager, needless to say I had no more beer on this flight.

A standard beer. Pale, light, overly carbonated. But crisp and cpean tasting. Boring standard fare.

RichardGretton (4423) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle@BC Ferries, Inside Passage, Canada. Golden beer with a soon disappearing head and a fizzy body. The aroma is very plainly bitter with yeastiness, and the flavour is dry and yeasty. Overall quite a plain dry and yeasty beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours pale yellow, mild skunk on the nose. a bit of lemon flavor on the taste, but other than that, pretty flavorless.

Water that looks like beer, it is funny to read the commercial description. Not good at all.

Wow there isn’t much to this sasquatch piss at all but the aromas surprised me and I had to give it a 2. Go back to the drawing board ASAP.
