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.

Thanks to my buddy for forgetting a few cans of this in my fridge so I didn’t actually have to spend money on it. Pale golden colour with a thick white head fading to lace. Grassy aroma, faintly malty. Slightly sweet malty flavour but low bitterness. Very boring, but not bad.

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.

arminjewell (8672) - East Lansing, Michigan, 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.

rosenbergh (8664) - 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.

jercraigs (8644) - 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.

3fourths (8634) - 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.

JorisPPattyn (8562) - 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!

BVery (8049) - 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.

DuffMan (8041) - 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.

Ferris (7970) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013
Can - Light grains and very sweet. Pale gold with a fizzy head that disappears almost immediately. Sweet apple and corn. Another sweet pale lager that is not good nor offensive.
