Kokanee is worth a mention, but only in the west where it is made from real glacier water. It tastes better than the filtered water they use in the east, although you probably couldn't come up with chemical test that could discern why it tastes different.
Ice beer is well mixed, clean, fresh and strong. I can't get Max Ice since i moved out here (7.1% alc. in 500 ml. cans) which i'd developed a taste for. Darker beers are okay, but it seems the Canadian brands haven't developed the brewing skills of the Europeans, as it usually end up tasting a bit metallic and not thoroughly blended.
