3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a typical offering from Canadaís large commercial breweries. The taste is so pedestrian that it leaves one wondering whether the breweries use one big vat and simply bottle and label with their own product. It all tastes the same!
Traditional IPAís are distinctive in the flavour profile. They have a rich matly taste, balanced by a high hop aroma. A good example of the style is Fullerís Bengal Lancer. Keithís has none of the profile characteristics. The malt is undetectable and there is NO hop aroma. How it can call itself an IPA is beyond me.
The recipe for Keithís is the following: 1. Put a bucket behind a horse, 2. Add yeast.

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. Itís okay to make macrobeers, but at least donít lie in the name.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can - This is not an IPA in case anyone is wondering. It used to be but is just a lager now and they didnít want to change the name for fear of a change in marketing. Light pale malts. Clear gold with a rich white head. Light sweet malts and not much else. A typical lager with sweet notes and not a touch of flavor or bitterness.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Keg at Toronto Island BBQ & Beer Co. Hazy golden body with a thin white head. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of grain and orange pith. Flavour of watered down orange juice and flabby malts. Thin body with a watery, spritzy mouthfeel. Lively fizz. This is not an IPA - itís a Lager. And not a great one at that. I couldnít finish a pint.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery in Halifax.
Golden body with excellent clarity.
Very mild, even for a pale ale. So weak and mild, my companion who doesnít even like beer found it drinkable and "like water". Ridiculous calling this an IPA. Ignoring that, it is clean, refreshing and well balanced. Should work well with food.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a vivid yellow with not much head. Smells like bitter. Tastes like thin bitter with some thin bittery bubbles. Definitely not an IPA and definitely not good.
