COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nova Scotia’s most popular beer, Alexander Keith’s India Pale Ale is fully fermented, mellow-aged for smoothness and uses balanced North American flavour and bittering hops to create a unique, malty flavour. Alexander Keith’s India Pale Ale is smooth with a slightly floral hop character and a sweet flavour delivery.

Pours golden with thick white head that dissipates quickly. Very little aroma to speak of, though perhaps a faint hint of yeasty apple juice. Tastes mainly of slightly sour water. The carbonation having dissipated, not really even any bubbles. I grew up on this stuff. Can it really have been this bad?

Not good. Tastes like someone has got a mass produced larger and put some coins in it. Probably not far from the truth. Metallic lager rather than an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ametras (221) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2014
On tap. Clear yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is corn and cereals with herbal notes. Taste is sweet malts, honey and bubblegum. Light body, fizzy carbonation, watery texture.

On draught in a 16 or 20oz pint glass, at some random bar. Tastes like a generic lager, how is this an IPA?

Unoffensive and cheap, not the worst thing to have around but is certainly below average. Much more watery than I personally like.

electrotype (167) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2014
Aqueux, quelconque, avec un très léger goût de céréales. Une IPA? N’importe quoi. C’est à des années lumière d’une bonne IPA...

aumax1 (185) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 4, 2014
bière blonde bouteille de 341ml. Se dit une IPA, mais ne ressemble pas à une IPA, car n’a pas vraiment d’amertume présente, d’arôme de houblon et de sucre résiduel souvent marqué dans les IPA. Semble à une lager bien normale tel une Bud avec des notes de céréales. Bière de match de sport qu’on peut consommer en quantité sans que ça ne tombe sur le coeur, mais pas une bière de dégustation.

Masterkush7 (389) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 2013
Pours clear golden with a light short lasting head. Despite the fact that this beer is my namesake it is a very flavourless beer. It is more like a watered down mass produced lager rather than an IPA.

Can into a glass. Looks like every other generic beer on the planet - very light and transparent. It’s labelled an IPA but has no hoppiness that you might expect. Meh.

Bottle. Says ipa...tastes like a pile of shit. Very dull aroma. Taste is fucked. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
