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.

Pours a golden yellow color. Aromas of corn, grains, and a little hops. Flavor is smooth grainy with a detectable hop presence, finishes with a sweetness.

Bottle: Clear gold, with a thin white head. Grainy, straw scent. Taste is a little cardboard, bland grain malt, barley. Oddly, this one seems to improve (slightly) with a bit of warming....other than that , it’s a standard-issue bargain Pale Lager.

Just your average canadian lager beer. I have trouble distinguishing between this, Canadian, Blue, etc.

12 oz bottle brought back from my aunt and uncle’s summer in Washington. Nose is corn and maybe a little floral hops along with a lager sweetness. Clear gold with a big, glass-lacing yellow tinged head that lasts a long time. Flavor is lightly sweet corn with a very slight bit of bitterness and caramel. OK pale lager.

A slightly below average lager and exactly the reason why craft beer got so big in northern america, I guess.
