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.

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.

jercraigs (7812) - 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.

Can. Lemon and light barley malt aroma. Pale yellow color with small head. Slightly sweet lemon and light barley malt flavor. Watery palate. Drinkable but very standard pale lager.

crossovert (7385) - Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2011
12 oz twist off. Generic macro Canadian brand. It pours an extremely light gold with a bright white head. The smell is almost non-existent but there is a bti of malt and corn. The flavor is sweet for an adjunct lager. It has a bit of nuttiness. It is better than an average AAL but it is still swill.

Ughsmash (7135) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2006
Bottled in B.C. Poured a clear bright golden with a medium cap of looser beige head... lots of rising carbonation. Nose was solid for the style... sweet pale malts, grassy hops, and nothing offensive. Flavor was about the same... on the sweeter side with primarily pale malts. Light-bodied with faint bitterness lingering. No real flaws here, but not much going for it either.

Rockin’ the Kokanee! (You know chicks dig it, right?). 340mL bottle pours with a clear pale gold body that supports a white head. The aroma offers up corn, corn flakes, floral hops and grainy malts. The taste is similar with sweet malts, corn, floral hops and then some mild grainy malts that take a stab at balancing out the sweetness. It gets a bit mineral here and there too. Not bad as there is some balance achieved that offers a small island amid the sea of sweetness.

rosenbergh (6784) - 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.

DuffMan (6736) - 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.
