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.

Glacier water and not much else. I was raised on it, but hadn't tried it since I was 18. What was I thinking? Original brewery was in Nelson, moved to Creston as the Columbia Brewing Company. Recently bought by Labatt's. Maybe it was better when I was 18?

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2005 Definitely adjuncts at work here. Smells ans tastes like Canadian beer, but when you get one cold enough its carbonation level makes it a good beer. For the amount I pay for this stuff, its a staple.

You got to get this one fresh on tap the imported does not taste anything like it. Verry clean an the most refreshing beer on a hot day served in a frosted mug.

One of the better macro brews out there. Very smooth with the slightest hint of the hops. very low overall flavour, though still present. Great overall maltiness though. give it a try.

A smooth, premium tasting lager. Tastes the way more of Labatts beers should.

This is one of those beers you chug. Pour this beauty into an Arrowhead water bottle, mount 4+ tubes and bong that puppy. Upgrade from Bud, Miller, Coors etc and enjoy while you chug.
