1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
473 ml can. Clear amber/copper red colour with a white foamy head that disappears quickly. Muted aroma but I’d say it almost smells like a pilsner with those ’noble’ hops. muted caramel notes and a lightly floral hint as well. Carbonated brew which amplifies the otherwise tasteless/bland flavours. has a slightly sweet and a hint of something bitter. Terrible.

This beer isn’t that bad... but it ain’t that great either. Probably tastes better ice cold... taste isn’t too chemically but close...

Not sure you can call this an amber, overly light, no malt flavour to speak of and bland as heck.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear amber (go figure). Big bubbly head that quickly dissipates. Cola-like carbonation. Sweet malty taste. Not the worst Keith’s product out there.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
On tap at Tailgators sports bar, this beer pours a clear deep red colour with an off white foamy head. The aroma is of cereals, and malts, the taste is very bland and one dimensional. With notes of syrupy malts, and bland watery grains. Overall a bland representation for the style

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at the Admiral in North Burnaby. It seemed like the best choice on tap, which says something about the tap selection. They got the color right, and that’s about it. Taste is pretty weak and insipid. It was drinkable because it was cold and wet, and I was thirsty.
This is a case where the advertising far exceeds the product!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
One of the better beers available at bars. Still doubt I would buy it for 5 to 6 dollars for one bottle.

1.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Still not particularly good. A poor showing for an amber ale, but expected from such a big producer. Decent aroma, watered down, rather bland flavour.

Aroma is one of beer’s most complex features. Aroma is propelled by lively CO2 and dampened by pillowy heads - especially nitrogen foam. Click on a term below to add it to your tasting notes.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a clear red color with an off white head that dissipates quickly and leaves little lace. Has a very faint malty caramel aroma. Taste is surprisingly malty with a bit of caramel but falls flat after that.
