3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A reddish amber ale with a thick frothy lacing light mocha head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with nice resinous floral hops, light pink grapefruit, OK. In mouth, sweet caramel malt with light grassy floral hops, light treacle, a tad too sweet, not bad but... Ok, it’s a Labatt product... Can from LCBO.

473ml can. Golden orange in colour with a very thin white head, little lacing. Aroma of caramel and grass. Flavour is very lightly hopped, more caramel. Watery mouthfeel, light body, light carbonation. Finishes quick. Fuuuuuuuuck, why did I buy this.

The beer pours a golden-red colour with a very thin tan coloured ring for a cap. The aroma is floral hops, grains, as well as some weak caramel notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is very grainy, far less flavourful than the Cascade version. Definitely not worth retrying.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very nice pale ale. Not over the top with malt or hoppiness. Slightly spicy with some piney notes. I actually prefer the Cascade version, but both are well crafted.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ecco cosa succede a tentare di portare una birra artigianale su larga scala. Non ci si può sicuramente lamentare del discreto risultato anche se non si rimane a bocca aperta. Riapetto al livello di birra italiana venduta nei supermercati questa birra risulta decisamente suoeriore. Discreto aroma erbaceo e speziato, birra ambrata, schiuma un po’ carente e carbonazione eccessiva.

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.

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.
