Crisp and cold, redolent of hockey, lumberjacks, wolverines, and the Yukon. But for that there isn't much to recommend here - doesn't taste bad but doesn't taste good, either. Pours with a hearty glug glug, a neutral yellow and a foam that disappears quickly. You'll need at least a twelver to get your swerve on.

This beer was light and crisp, yet bold and flavorful. I was pleased with the taste and it quickly became my favorite when in Vancouver. It was the type of beer that I tend to gravitate to because it was easy to drink. I look forward to returning to Canada so that I can reunite with this tasty selection. It's a favorite with Canadians too and as I noticed it was available in cans, bottles and on-tap, as well as a light variation. it's definitely a beer I will remember.

Kokanee is a popular macro here in Edmonton, and everyone has had it at one point or another. It pours a pale yellow with not much smell to report. It's got dat corney taste that adjunct lagers have, but it is not as pronounced as some of the cheaper beers. Aftertaste is tolerable.

I'd grab this sooner than a bud or canadian. It's best cold and is very refreshing.
