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.

Not an IPA despite its claim. It's what it is, the other options in my friends beer fridge were Molson Canadian or Coors Light. I made the right choice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the brewery. Comes a pale gold with an average white head. Aroma and taste of malt, grain, and a bit of citrus. Bartender related that this IPA has around 14 IBUs. Interesting.

On tap at Halifax Airport, NS. Pale, frothy and almost tasteless - the Canadian equivalent of Greene King IPA - that is, an IPA by name only.

On tap. Pours a clear light gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of earthy grains, straw and a hint of grass. Flavor is similar with lots of grains and hay with some straw supporting.

This is ok but not as good as Moosehead from out east. Typical commercially produced Canadian beer. I would call it a lager.

I wouldn’t call it an India Pale.... more like a blond ale from the school of bad mass produced Canadian beer from the 80’s/90’s

One of my first IPA's. I've been drinking this for years in Canada, before IPA became popular. Have had this from cans and on tap but this time it was a tall boy in Aurora. Easier to drink than many of today's popular IPA. At 5% ABV this beer is definitely sessionable. A little sweet and malty but good hops too. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0,33 bottle at a bar in canada. - Wow, how do they even dare to call this an india pale ale. Tastes like a generic macrobrew but slightly more bitter. It’s okay to make macrobeers, but at least don’t lie in the name.
