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.

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.

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.

12oz bottle pours clear copper / gold with white head. The aroma offers up a mix of spicy hops and earthy hops with a bit of roasted malts and sweet malts in the background. The taste is similar with spicy and floral hops backed up by some earthy hops, a bit of roasted malts and malt sweetened floral hops into the 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.

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.

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.

A clear, golden pour with a white head. The aroma is surprisingly fruity, a mixture of strawberry and orange. The light body has a smooth texture with average carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet with a quick finish.

Has a thin bready aroma. Pours a crisp golden yellow with a thin head. Has a fruity sourness to the taste and the carbonation is lively.Has an OK character overall though nothing super. I’d have no problem drinking it again.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 11097-BG-05. 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. The taste tends to be a bit more refershing with a stronger malt and light yeast character. It is rather refreshing.

Doesn’t actually smell too good. Pretty smooth. Very little hop flavor. just a smooth easy-drinking beer.
