Beer of the Week (Vol. XLIV)

This special end of the Winter Olympics edition of Beer of the Week brought to you Glen Lake Wine & Spirits, a venue that can help you own the podium in your life.

Since Canada is the host country for the 2010 Winter Games, I thought we should feature a Canadian beer as the games come to a close. And since Vancouver is the host city, a beer from British Columbia would make be an appropriate selection. Which leads us to Kokanee Glacier Beer brewed by the Columbia Brewery which is owned by Labatt Brewing which turn is now part of the Anheuser-Busch InBev global beer conglomerate. Which is a pretty good foreshadowing about what kind of beer to expect.

Brown bottle. Blue and silver label features an imposing snow covered mountain peak that's breaking outside the label boundary.

Beer Style: Lager

Alcohol by Volume: 5.0%

COLOR (0-2): Very light gold & almost completely clear. 0

AROMA (0-2): Faint odors of sweet malt. Not much to work with. 1

HEAD (0-2): Bright white. Not much volume with no lacing. 0

TASTE (0-5): Crisp with light malt and slight corn flavors. A lot of carbonation with a light body. Very drinkable. 2

AFTERTASTE (0-2): Clean with a light finish. 1

OVERALL (0-6): This is a technically classified as an "American adjunct lager" a.k.a. a macro brew. For what it is, it's not bad. Pretty bland, but inoffensive. I'd prefer it over a Bud, Miller, or Coors, but if I'm going to have to pay for a Canadian macro I'd rather go with a Labatt's or even better a Moosehead. No medals here. 2

TOTAL SCORE (0-19): 6
