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 wasnít 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 itís pretty crisp and inoffensive.
This style lends itself to crappy aftertastes, but I donít really get one here. Finish is light as expected.
If itís 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 uncleís 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.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Crisp clear coloured body with a thinnish white head. Aroma of pale malt, alcohol, cardboard and a touch of caster sugar. Light-bodied; Pale funky flavour of cardboard, stale malt and absolutely nothing else - not even bad flavours - just water. Aftertaste shows the cardboard, alcohol and water - pale and nothing giving. Overall, a very poor beer - and one I guess I should have known was garbage, but I didnít recognise the name on a Chinese restaurant in the West End of downtown Vancouver, so I tried it, and I wish I would have thought othertwise. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Dinesty Chinese Restaurant in the West End of Vancouver, British Columbia on 07-June-2015 for CA$4,50.
