3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Original review posting date 5/8/2008...
On tap at The Dubliner in Ottawa...
Looks a little better than the average macro bear - more of a darker - maybe honey - color with typical quick and ample carbonation. Head wasn’t too bad.
No crap on the nose - it smells very clean - sort of the way I remember Alpine Lager from the Maritimes. No silage from the minimal Saaz hops and adjuncts really shows up on the beak, but...
...the silage does make a grand entrance on the palate, as does a little rice(?) adjunct. Still it’s pretty crisp and inoffensive.
This style lends itself to crappy aftertastes, but I don’t really get one here. Finish is light as expected.
If it’s the only thing around I could session this up pretty easily. Not the end-all by any means but a pleasant surprise for the style.

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

Bottle at Snowbird. Light yellow body with thin head. Nose is nondescript. Taste is light, corn and malty. Crisp finish. Not much to it.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

I really have nothing to say about this beer. I would rather drink water. After switching to craft brew I will never go back to kokanee.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Crisp but with a slightly more of a bit than your average Canadian lager. Kind of a chemical aroma.

Kokanee has always been one of my favorites from Canada. Has a good clean crisp taste smooth finish very drinkable.
