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.

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

On draught in a 16 or 20oz pint glass, at some random bar. Very boring, very dull.

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...

pumpkinhead2 (237) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013
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 malt grillé, caramel, pain grillé, sucre d’orge, céréale, cassonade, léger houblon floral. Beau nez, 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, subtil caramel (ou serait-ce plutôt du sucre d’orge?), léger houblon floral, pointe d’alcool inappropriée, 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 (2520) - 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.

Storm_Shadow (106) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2013
Bottles. Pors amber with small white head. Aroma of malt and caramel and slight toast. Not much finish, fairly light and dry.

ben4321 (3559) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 7/7/13

Aroma: The nose is light malts, some caramel, a little fruit, and some bread
Appearance: Pours a reddish/amber color with a small beige head and light lace
Flavor: The taste is much like the nose, with some malty sweetness, and metallic notes
Palate: The body is fairly light, with a bit of a thin/watery feel, that just doesn’t have enough heft
Overall Impression: Look, I certainly wasn’t impressed by this one, but I was still a little surprised to see the score be a 2 in the style. Ouch. Anyway, that’s not far off, this is a pretty mediocre Amber Ale.

Mediocre amber. Pours an attractive amber with a head that disappears quickly. Not much aroma. Continues on the palate - bland. Unremarkable finish. Not the worst Keith's beer but not one I'd choose. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PhillyCraft (2847) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle as a gift. Drank an ounce or two tops. Hazy red brown pour with off white head, gone instantly. Nose is vomit soaked, shit stained, underwear with some cherry tasting malt. Copper, sugar, and penny also. Nose is most of the same.
