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.

Nothing extremely special. I prefer AK’s India Pale Ale more but I can’t seem to get it in the States. Has a nice golden amber color. Not much aroma, but it goes down smooth and malty.

Golden in color, clear with a thin white head. Good malt and hops balance. Light ale flavor this was easy drinking with a good dry finish. Very nice hot day lawnmower beer.

My bottle says brewed in st louis. Looks like a pale lager with perhaps a little more depth. Ooooo, quite strong initial bite, almost like a strong lager. Yes, course, almost a little rude. Not as gentleman as euro english pale.Not quite as good as odells 5 bbl and cannot even stand next to allegheny pale ale. Does not hide its alky well. Not too bad once you get over the uncivilty. Processed finish

12oz bottle. Damn..just realized this is brewed in St Louis. Filtered orange-tan, small fluffy white head. A pretty decent beer, but I feel cheated by the "Nova Scotia Style" label. Clean and balanced, a little bland. Creamy medium body. Dry with some decent bitterness up front, then fades into a sweet cream soda, cream ale-like, honey tinged finish. A little bland, but certainly an OK session beer.

Draft… Clear golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The nose is mashy and malty – pale malts – with a clear lack of any substantial hop aspect. Medium-bodied with stinging carbonation. The flavor is bland and boring, but well-balanced and quite drinkable. Definitely more of a malty influence than any real hop character here as well. Finishes crisp and a bit grainy.

On tap at McGreg’s. The pour was a golden yellow with a thin, short lasting head. Its aroma is thinly malted and thinly hopped but the overall impression is crisp and clean. Joe bought me this. Iended up chugging it to gt to the better beers of the night.

Pours a golden color. Aroma is of malts up front with some light hops in the background. Flavor is similar to the aroma with a little lactic present. Leaves a lactic and dusty malt finish. This seems to me more of a lager flavor and less pale ale.

WTF! AB/Inbev does it again with another line of pisswater. This brew is a sad excuse for a Pale Ale. Pale yellow in color, a fleeting head, smells grainy. Light to medium nectar with ample effers. Nothing offensive about the beer, Just the fact that it’s being pushed here as a premium. Another losing line by AB/Inbev.

Pour is a bronze with a large with head. Aroma is a dull malt and nothing else. Flavor is the same a dry dull malt and nothing in the way of hops. Poor and bland.

On tap at McGregor’s Chili. After rereading my rating for their IPA, am surprised with how wonderful I found this beer. It was fresh, cloudy, nice head, dark gold towards amber but not theere. Nose of spices and oranges. Palate very similar, hoppy, citrrus, spicy, really well done and enjoyable.
