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.

One of my favorites, I grew up near the brewery (I was 60 miles from the Canadian border). Iíve been drinking this for years and it seems to vary by batch (or my taste does). It goes from Decent to Excellent in my experience. It smells rich, but not too strong. Has a nice color to it, not anything surprising for the flavor. Goes down like beer, but the finish is very nice and refreshing. Good for summer and winter.

Definitely lightly hopped. I think that slight-and very slight-bitterness scares some into trading Kokanee for the other taste-free mega beers. However, still very flavourless, especially when cold. Good for a summer day, or game day. But, at a slightly higher price point than the other cheap stuff, Iím gonna go with the other cheap stuff every time. Not much different and not worth the extra couple bucks.

Probably Canadas best beer. If you are in Canada only drink kokanee because their other beers suck.... sorry Canadians but its true.

Definitly one of my favourite beers. In my opinion the Gold is better but I dont walk away disapointed if Gold isnt on tap. Good clean taste, makes it very easy to enjoy alone or with some food. But like most beers it is just that much better on tap.

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, itís a staple.

This tastes like sasquatch piss. I canít even stand to smell this stuff. Iíd rather have a fine bottle oí colt 45 than this.
