Bottle. I actually somewhat enjoy this beer. I like what they are trying to do, by showcasing different hop types, and they do it pretty well for a big brewery. Taste more like an IPA than the original Keiths. Has a nice floral aroma. It taste of a citrus, floral, bread, but in a much lighter way. It goes down quite smooth with a low bitterness to it. They must be doing this to get macro lager drinkers to try a little flavour for once, and it is not a bad attempt.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada via Costco. Tasted alongside Hallertau and Galaxy. Similar appearance for all three, galaxy perhaps slightly lighter. Aroma is not very distinct, some passion fruit, and a faint resin. Flavour is weak, some bitterness, better than the Hallertau.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma: A hint of malt, but almost no detectable hop aroma. The dominant aroma is alcohol.
Appearance: Clear, moderate amber, poor head retention.
Flavour: Not very bitter, and almost no hop flavour. Disappointing considering it is supposed to be a special cascade hop version. The malt flavour falls flat on the tongue, and it is dominated by bready overtones.
Mouthfeel: Carbonation is low and the body is weak. It tastes like mildly carbonated water.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear brew with a lively carbonation. Muted aroma, has a sweet corn aroma and a pilsner like quality that meets up with slightly tropical hoppy aroma. Light brew with a watery profile and an light hoppy finish. Better than their other brews but this is bad for the style.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft. Medium copper pour with a thin fizzy head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is grassy, weak hops. Taste is similar to regular Keiths with a bit more hop flavour, though not really bitter. Better than the original but not great.

Aroma is grassy with sulpur notes. The cascade aromas are pretty subtle. Taste is a sweet maltiness with pale caramel notes. The hoppiness is earthy and pretty basic. Appearance is a gold with thin frothy head.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from the Keiths Hop sampler pack. Aroma of wet stale hops. Tastes like the typical Keiths wet, old, grassy hops. Not really different from their original and therefore not great. The other two in the pack were still not great but definitely better than this.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tried at home. Can. First thing is an overwhelming hop smell, and not a pleasant hop smell. Nice colour, Quite gassy but the taste is what I can only describe as ’dish washing liquid’. I really like the IPA and Red, but this is not for me.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can shared with Clocks, Andy, Max, Paul and Zdk. Pours a clear amber caramel body with no head. Aroma is stale hop, caramel malt bomb and grain. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of caraml, grain and old musty hop. Pretty bad.
