2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
My Bottom Line:
This underhopped Pale Ale Ale pushes forth tame floral and leafy notes atop lean caramel.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam floats atop the misty pale amber.
-Bitterness is shallow.
-Execution is not better than that of an average homebrew. Not very impressive for such a huge brewery.
-This may be more flavorful than the average macro brew, but the hop intensity is so mild one wonders why they are trying to make people focus on it.
-Their tv ad is truly gorgeous though, you have to give’em that.

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.

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.

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.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2014 Couleur ambrée avec reflets orangées. Nez floral et de caramel. En bouche j’ai été très surpris, bon mélange de houblons floral avec une pointe de caramel. Excellente bière pour du commercial... Bravo, mais reste que ce n’est pas la meilleure bière du monde.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can - Mild citrus hops, a little orange and some sweet malt. Fizzy gold with a thin head that dissipates immediately. Sweet malt dominates with some orange hoppy notes but no bitterness. An odd finish with a touch of sourness. Much better than I expected, but still nothing I would volunteer to drink.

Even Keiths does the one-hop beer well. I find it nice to know what you are getting it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This ale poured a clear medium amber colour with a half decent, creamy head. Scents include cascade hop, grapefruit and pineapple. First sip was smooth but a little thin. Flavours of honey, hops, bread and citrus. Finish is a little bitter with flavours of citrus hop and honey lingering.
