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.

Not good, though perfect for sucking down in quantity after tiring of the sweet but potent mixed drinks at a Stampede-week happy hour. So kudos for that.

Plain, about what you would expect it to taste like after examining its pale yellow consistency

Bottle. A clear, slightly pale golden beer topped by a decent, white head. The aroma is mostly on the grainy side, some fruityness kicking in as well. Medium to thin on the palate, too sweet I think, with a faint bitterness and some fruity hints. Short finish. Except for the sweetness, it’s a decent pale lager I think, but there’s way too many other options out there. 130704

Bottle...who's going to put this in a glass? Appearance, well, I'm guessing that it's golden and effervescent. Aroma...lagery...this rating is purely going to be on taste, I think; and I don't imagine that'll be a good thing. Taste is skunky, some straw, almost no hops. Where are the hops, Columbia Brewing Company? A typical Canadian lager that reminds me of my late teens.

Poured from a 355mL can. Clear, pale yellow with frothy white head. Mild aroma of corn and yeast. Corny taste that goes down easy. Little flavour and little body.

My favorite standby. Very simple, mild taste of wheat and corn, not very complicated and a light sweetness. Light yellow and great for a hot day. One of my favorite American commercial style lagers.
