355ml can. Amber red colour, small creamy head, off white in colour, decent retention. Aroma was somewhat malty with a grainy edge, some caramel sweetness. Flavour is grainy, some caramel, faint hops in the finish, slightly grassy. Grainy dryish finish. Average body and carbonation.

On tap @ Lone Star Belleville. Pours a clear amber with a small white head. Aromas are fermented fruit, spent grain, a bit of alcohol. Tastes are light grainy malts, a hint of bitterness in the back-end, and a touch of alcohol. Light body, medium carbonation, light and short bitter finish. Though non-offensive, this beer is a typical mass produced ale distinguished only by a little bit of added color. I have some self-loathing for having chosen this beer simply because I had not yet rated it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

On tap. Caramel amber pour with very little head. Caramel malt flavour. Kinda flat. Not much going on here.

monk191 (874) - California, USA - JUL 24, 2014
A simple and refreshing red, but forgettable. Pours a nice red color with a light white head. Smells of malt and cherries. A bit more cherries in the start, with some malt, but finishes sort of empty. Had on tap at Mug and Anchor is Mahone Bay.

Draft - Pale malts and light caramel. Clear amber with a rich white head. Ligh biscuit and caramel, sweet and over carbonated. Typical light lager alternative.

Hidden_Pooch (286) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle. Somewhat better than an original Keiths, but that isn’t too hard to achieve. Taste of very light caramel malts, and no hops to be heard of. Inoffensive aftertaste with more of a body than expected. Would take one over a macro lager, but that’s about it.

I actually enjoyed this a bit. Red colour beer with malty taste. Nice balance of hops as well (although I just had some v poor beers so maybe) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bouteille de 341 ml de rousse. arome intéressant de céréales notes de miel et pomme. au gout elle est malheureusement plutôt fade et insipide

Couleur ambrée avec un col léger et non résistant. Nez de caramel faible. Même gout simple. Vraiment pas top...

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2014 Bière rouge orangée, parfaitement limpide, effervescence moyenne, large col beige mousseux et compacte, qui s’étiole lentement en traçant son chemin sur les parois du verre. Arômes de pain grillé, sucre d’orge, caramel/cassonade, grain, avec un léger houblon floral. Beau nez qui semble annoncer une bière plutôt sucré, assez intense, mais ça manque un peu de complexité cependant. En bouche, c’est bien pétillant, mais beaucoup trop mince au palais. Au goût, on perd malheureusement beaucoup d’intensité par rapport au nez. Léger pain grillé, sucré dominant, mais il est difficile d’en identifier clairement la saveur (sucre d’orge, caramel, ou tout simplement du sucre brut?), léger houblon floral, pointe d’alcool, finale légèrement amère. Bière correcte sans plus, destinée au grand public, elle est bonne, mais elle offre peu sur le plan de la dégustation.

mkel07 (3297) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 10, 2013
On tap at Strathroy Ale House. By far the best of the Alexander Keith’s beers that I tried. Great deep amber almost red colour, lots of caramel malt in the aroma and a good hop/malt combination in the flavour.
