I did actually get some faint citrus and a fair amount of orange and then of course a bit of the musty caramel marco smell that I have come to expect. High carbonation, mild body, slighly bitter but goes does somewhat easily with an off taste at the end.

When I popped the top on the Tall Boy the citrus cascade hop aroma was a promising introduction to Alexander Keith’s. Flavor fell short, cereal malts, little in bitterness. Macro beer at best.

Drank at a bachelor party in Montreal. Pretty much an IPA gone bad. Nothing else to write here.

Can - 473ml. Limpid amber body with heavy carbonation and a fading white bubbly head. Fresh hoppy aroma with some caramel hints. Its fair hoppy taste lacks, however, complexity and strength. It carries some subtle metallic notes and ends with a short bitter finish. Much better than their so-called "India Pale Ale", but still quite a disappointment for hops lovers.

On tap at a small-town pub with nothing but Keiths and worse. Decided ’what the hell, I’ll give it a try". It was acceptable, which was a bit of a surprise. Good looking clear amber with a 1/2-inch foamy head. Aroma of C-hops, with slight musty and grassy notes. Flavour was fairly light and watery, finishing with some actual hop flavour; finish is sour and bitter with grassy and citrus hops. Thin-bodied, yet smooth and creamy. Won’t bother with it again, but I can’t say I was disappointed.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2014 can. Poured medium amber with a thin white head. Orange citrus aroma with a piney hop base. Medium body, crisp mouthfeel, less bitter than I thought it would have been, finishes quite clean. Caramel malt flavour, a bit graniy with some light grapefruit notes. Very drinkable, I’ll be picking this up again.

[5139-20130305] Tap. Mild resin and orange skin aroma. Clear, orange red body with a quick foamy white head. Lightly bittered grains and hoppy orange notes in the flavour. Medium body is quite carbonated. Tasty, an excellent new choice on the tap list for AK. (7/3/8/3/14) 3.5+

A mass produced beer making an attempt at a craft style beer. It is a much improvement from the original "Alexander Keith’s India Pale Ale" that tastes just like a water down lager with no trace of hops in the taste, in this new beer you can actually taste some hops in it. It is not a bad start for people who never tasted a hoppy beer

On tap at a royal oak...figured what the heck. Clear amber with a nice white head. Served cold so that helped (got worse as it warmed up) but I did actually get some faint citrus and a fair amount of orange and then of course a bit of the musty caramel malt / marco smell that I have come to expect. High carbonation, mild body, slighly bitter but goes does somewhat easily with an off taste at the end.
