1.33/5  rDev -48.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

pours a pale straw color into a clear light yellow body. almost half inch head that dissipates hella quickly. weak, stringy, transparent lacing. slightest appearance of haze and sediment.

smells of rice, stale glacier water, hay, old bread, and, oh yeah, pee.

no taste whatsoever. bland, dead on-bringing to wet, watery finish. flat-to-staunch aftertaste. comparable to old apple juice sitting in a cup all day, then bitterly consumed.

picked up a 6er of this in port orchard before an open mic, wanting to try something new. big, big mistake.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Yellow pour, white head, a decent amount of lace for a fizzy yellow beer, but nonetheless, still uninspired. Corn and egg smell. And not in the good breakfast way.

Taste, again, uninspired, just blandness, far from the worst AAL, but being middle of the road for this style is usually pretty bad regardless. Mild corn flavor, sugar water, thin mouthfeel, non existant hops, tons of carbonation. A pretty watery experience, which is good, because non of the off aroma stuff came into the taste.

The most intriguing aspect of this beer was where I found it. In the mexican food store on the southside of Milwaukee. Its like, all these central american lagers, and then bam, kokanee for $7.99 a 6pack. Why the price is that high, I have no idea, no marketing, no advertisements, no ingredients = a price slightly higher than the everyday price for SNPA?

Brought a can of Kokanee back from Canada. It is typical of most North American beers. Golden clear in color with white head that eventually dissappears...no lacing. The smell and taste are mostly grain with enough hop balance to make it smooth. Mouthfeel tends to be light in body with good carbonation. Overall it is a decent drinkable beer.
