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.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2016 Can and bottle. Lemon and light barley malt aroma. Pale yellow color with large head. Slightly sweet lemon and light barley malt flavor. Watery palate. Drinkable but very standard pale lager. Bottle gets more points for appearance but otherwise the same boring pale lager.

Bottle @ home. Pale light yellow appearance with a white head. Pale malty, bitter lager nose. Watery, bland, bitter, nasty, lightly flavored pale lager. Yuck!

BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap. Pale yellow with a thin dissipating white head. Light grain nose and very little taste. As far as pale lagers go, it is neither flavorful nor offensive.

Poor North-American lager, has fizz to it but also no good aromas or taste.

Not a bad example of the macro pale lager style-- at least it is clean, with a fresh grainy aroma and palate. It’s interesting that this was the only Canadian beer aside from the Unibroue line that I found while living in West Australia.

Bottle. Yellow body. Interesting melange of macro flavours. Some sweet grainy lightly fruity notes in both the aroma and flavour. Mild hoppy bitterness is very lightly grassy. Bit more flavour than your average MolBatts product but still nothing special. Average to light palate.

Tried a bottle of Kokanee Glacier Beer that my sister brought home from Canada during the summer of 2005.
Light yellow color with a white head. Very light scent and flavor, easy to drink and easy to forget. Works well in the summer heat, but leaves a lot to wish for in taste.

JorisPPattyn (10002) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2005
Pale gold, heavily carbonated; huge, collapsing snow-white head. Dull-sweet malty and gassy nose, not very inviting. Sweet pale malts taste, vague liquorice flavour, soapy. Sticky, near-cloying MF; ends empty, starch-like. Vague aftertaste of decaying hay. Horrible concoction. What a terrible way to pollute water - just when glaciers are receding everywhere!

GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 8, 2011
341mL bottle and 355mL cans. Many samples. Overall, this is probably the most generic pale lager you are going to find in Canada. Ubiquitous, cheap, and displaying no brewing flaws though it is a bit "fruity" in the pale lager sense.

It pours with an extremely light SRM2 with a suddy, temporary white head. No real lace. Nose is sweet grain, light fruit, and sugar. Taste is hummingbird food- straight sugar water, with huge seltzer water carbonation. Very easy to drink- more like soda water. Inoffensive and relatively characterless. A small step up from Bud Light.

arminjewell (9669) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Pours clear yellow, thin white head. Aroma has a tiny bit of grass, some grain. Taste is very weak with notes of grass, some grain and bread, tiny bitter at the end.
