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.

Great beer especially when in the Rocky Mountains smoking a big phatty. Delicious after a hard days work.

Bottle from a buddy fridge. Golden pour, large but fast fading head, a bit of lacing. Corn in the aroma and taste, kind of sweet, crisp, hay. Above average (for the style) macro probably best had in the proper context (after a day of skiing). Lighter body, slightly dry finish. You could do far far worse. You have done far worse. You know who you are!

Bottle. Pours pale yellow, with a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is surprisingly pleasant. Some light corn, cream, resinous hops, black pepper, and honeysuckle. Sweet flavor, with a sharp bitterness. Light body, with a crisp, clean finish. Actually, not bad, for a pale lager. Balanced, clean, and no off flavors.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2018 I have to say I'm biased with this rating. I was born in the valley next to the glacier the water for this beer comes from. Having said that, no one can relate to this beer unless you have drank from a stream that wanders its course through age old ice, dense forest, unremitting growth, and finally the feces of hoary marmot and white tail. This remains my quaff of choice, forever in my genes.

Clean, crisp and very easy drinking. Very light on the hops - most of the characteristics come from the malt.

I absolutely love this beer. The experience is so much more divine when it is nice and cold. This beer should be the staple of your diet and fits with any food you choose to buy. This is a must buy when you find it on the shelf. I usually drink a 15 pack every Saturday and I still can't get enough.

Bitterbill (2112) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 3, 2017
From Feb 2008 This pours from 12oz bottle a clear yellow-gold with a 1 finger head of foam that shrinks quickly to a fine broken layer. The smell is typical for the style with notes of corn and malt and a slight hop pinch. The taste is of corny malt with a slight bitterness near and through the finish. Nothing offensive here but there are many that I can say that about. Pretty drinkable. There's not much more that I can say about it.

shawnmurphy (771) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2017
Consumed while on vacation in Edmonton, Alberta. 12-ounce bottle pours clear light straw color with a spritz of white head and lacing. Aroma: corn syrup, cereal. Flavor: Corn Flakes cereal, Capt. Crunch cereal, Karo syrup, wet cardboard, salt. Mouthfeel: light-bodied.

1.3
Tranquillity (2690) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2017
Bottled at ranchmans at the Calgary stampede. Clear body, small white head. The aroma is yeasty like most cheap lagers. The taste is fresh but musty. Clean finish.

I strongly recommend this beer for people who are looking for a great taste at an affordable price. There are cheap beers out there and there are expensive beers, this one is right smack in the middle, and remains an icon to Canada.
