jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, - JUN 10, 2013
2013-04-18. Crisp amber orange modest off white head. Pleasant hoppy aroma, modest green leafy hop character. Flavour is similar, mild bitterness throughout, leafy green hops with muted fruit and citrus accents. 6+ Smooth average bodied palate. Decent, quaffable, but the cascade was more to my liking. Can from the Beer Fairy

samzim (150) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Mild hoppy aroma with notes of malt and citrus. Clear straw caramel colour. Mild bitterness with flavour of grapefruit and lightly roasted malt. Medium body with lively carbonation. Nothing too interesting; wouldn’t buy again.

Day 2 of Alexander Keith. Reading previous ratings I’m wondering if this is pure shit or not so bad like the other. Anyway, bottle to Sam Adams pint glass, pour is transparent orangey amber with a minimal white head. If this really is the same recipe but with different hops, I’m surprised the head retention changed this much. Aroma consists of a familiar smell that I come across a lot of Belgian beers, those grassy, leafy, spicy hop notes. Unfortunately nothing else comes through except for very light malt and caramel notes. Sad. Taste....I shit you not, same as the other beer but more pisswatery. Even compared to the last beer this has even less hop notes and what the last beer needed was more hop notes. Not impressed. Palate is thin bodied, CO2 medium, balanced well and easily drinkable. Overall, a thirst quenchin’, pot smokin’, lawn mowin’ beer. It’s not shit but fuck they need to up the hops a bit. I’m not expecting IPA levels but they could make it more interesting Cheap fuckers.

berkshirejohn (4396) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2014
473ml can from the Duty Free at Fort Erie, ON. Golden amber with a fading cream head and light carbonation; the Hallertauer hops come through fairly well, giving a spicy nose and taste, which is balanced by a sweet caramel malt body. Better than expected.

kaser (2535) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Orange pour from bottle. Clear. Apricot and peach taste. Pear and bitter flavors. Not bad. Mild IPA

Hidden_Pooch (276) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle. This is basically the same as my Cascade hop review. The only difference is it taste much weaker in every way. Good choice for people who don’t know what a hop is, but want to try a beer with a little flavour.

HeistAlmighty (1111) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 16, 2014
473ml can. Roughly the same malt as the rest of the Keiths Hop line, but with some grassy noble hops. Doesn’t quite fit, but I like the noble hop taste so this was a cautious thumbs up.

markas101 (1824) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
33 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada via Costco. Tasted alongside Cascade and Galaxy. Similar appearance for all three, galaxy perhaps slightly lighter. Aroma is not very distinct, some caramel and very faint resin. Flavour is weak, some bitterness.

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
Light amner body with heavy carbonation and a fading white frothy/bubbly head. Fair hoppy aroma with malty and flowery hints. Its malty/hoppy taste is bland and thin. It ends with a bad metallic finish

exeter (259) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 29, 2014
Boring, not worth the bottle return. Grassy and citrus. I a beer with no directions.
