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.

Update: The more I drink real beers the more trouble I have drinking a Kokanee. Just an off-flavour and lack of body and character. Typical North American tapwater (whoops glacier)style beer. Can drink a lot at one time but why.

A good beer made by Labatt. Don't drink it too often but I'd never turn one down

I read in the newspaper that the boys down at Kokanee had to take the snowboarder off the label because Canadian beer cannot depict an association to sports. Other than that tidbit of info this is your run-of-the-mill beer with a pretty label (now without a snowboarder going down the mountain).

Hard to find in the Midwest, I'd take this over Blue any day. I'd liken it to the Michelob of Canada.

I must admit that I had this beer at its best. Had just hiked six miles to see a glacier in Alaska and came back hot and thirsty. Had this on ice at the end of the trail. Two went down smooth and good. Actualy very crisp and light. Not a bad beer just unremarkable. A must have after a glacier visit. :-)

This may have been a really old bottle lying around the house- you know how it goes. Needless to say I didn't finish more than a few sips.

This tastes like overcarbonated piss water. It is the Canadian version of Budweiser, yet it has no past sentimental value to me.

This beer is one of the best lager beers in my opinion, I wish they would bring it over to Europe, for being a north american lager it is good tasting and has a nice aftertaste
