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.

My choice for worst Canadian macros. Light-bodied, watery and weak. Still better than Bud, Miller, etc.

3fourths (8495) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2003 Very light afternoon beer, not much taste, but not as carbonated as macro beer. I remember it being better though.

arminjewell (8470) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Pours clear yellow, thin white head. Aroma has a tiny bit of grass, some grain. Taste is very weak with notes of grass, some grain and bread, tiny bitter at the end.

jercraigs (8334) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2006
Bottle. Yellow body. Interesting melange of macro flavours. Some sweet grainy lightly fruity notes in both the aroma and flavour. Mild hoppy bitterness is very lightly grassy. Bit more flavour than your average MolBatts product but still nothing special. Average to light palate.

JorisPPattyn (8312) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2005
Pale gold, heavily carbonated; huge, collapsing snow-white head. Dull-sweet malty and gassy nose, not very inviting. Sweet pale malts taste, vague liquorice flavour, soapy. Sticky, near-cloying MF; ends empty, starch-like. Vague aftertaste of decaying hay. Horrible concoction. What a terrible way to pollute water - just when glaciers are receding everywhere!

rosenbergh (8271) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2010
355 ml can. Banff, AB, Canada.
Clear pale golden colour with small white head. Malt, soda-like sweetness and mild notes of hops in aroma. Sweet malt and notes of grassy hops. Not hopeless.

gnoff (8203) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2006
Tried a bottle of Kokanee Glacier Beer that my sister brought home from Canada during the summer of 2005.
Light yellow color with a white head. Very light scent and flavor, easy to drink and easy to forget. Works well in the summer heat, but leaves a lot to wish for in taste.

DuffMan (7622) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 26, 2007
Not a bad example of the macro pale lager style-- at least it is clean, with a fresh grainy aroma and palate. It’s interesting that this was the only Canadian beer aside from the Unibroue line that I found while living in West Australia.

BVery (7602) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap. Pale yellow with a thin dissipating white head. Light grain nose and very little taste. As far as pale lagers go, it is neither flavorful nor offensive.

Skinnyviking (7595) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2006
Draught. Relatively high white head. Clear yellow body. Nice hops aroma and flavor with a pleasant bitternes.. High carbonation.
