COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Alexander Keith’s Nova Scotia Style Pale Ale is brewed with traditional two-row malt for a full, malty flavor with a burst of fruity, spicy and citrusy hop nose. The beer features a deep golden color with a balanced bitterness.

Yellow-gold with good aromas of pale ale malt, straw, ripe lemon and zest. Those flavours come out with clean bitterness and lovely biscuit malt. Good carbonation but the finish is a little short. Good ’go to’ pale ale.

Floral and sugary malt aroma. Usual light copper, possibly added color. Sweet taste of starchy malt, metallic aftertaste and mild hopping. Light body - feels heavier than it is due to the sweet character of the beer. InBev’s world conquest continues.

Bottle to glass pint. Pours a medium dark yellow, and little to no head. Not much aroma or flavor. Kinda watery and flavorless. Not my bag.

Leighton (11315) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2012
Bottle at Sander’s place in NYC. Pours clear gold with a small, white foam head. Lightly toasted malts in the nose, mild caramel and straw. Medium sweet flavor, sweet bread, grains. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet, slightly syrupy finish, faint leaves and grain, some toasted sugar. It’s nothing special, though slightly better than the Nova Scotia Brown Ale.

Meh. Boring beer that does nothing terrible and nothing good. Flat hops and a bit of unflattering sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jsmerig (1259) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Pours golden yellow with a moderate head and very little lacing. Aroma is faint smell of bananas and subtle spices. Taste is more on the malty side of malty and hoppy. In fact there isn’t any particularly hoppy notes anywhere in the taste. It also flirts with being cidery. The pallet is a bit wet and because of the lack of hop flavor the finish is not crisp. However it’s a fairly pleasant beer.

Onslow (1184) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Light aroma of mild spicey hops, a little malt. Taste is a little malt, a little spicey hops, an epheral hint of roasted grain, a nice dry finish with very modest bitter. Overal very light, thin palate, weak, but with a little character and no bad flavors.

obguthr (3913) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 5, 2012
Weak dried leaves aroma. Crystal clear amber, thin head. Mainly dry malt with a honey character, but weak. Rather macro-ish, but not entirely a lost cause.

I absolutely love this beer!. Its a perfect balance. Amber color, great aroma. Next no no head but tastes amazing, there is not any one flavor out doing the rest, very well balanced.

Nice amber color with the pour but absolutely no head. It has a tang of some bitter citrus, grapefruit possibly. Not bad but not good
