A medium-bodied lager with a soft malty personality showing a touch of hops and light nutty flavour expression that ends with a smooth, relaxed finish.

Not what I expected after reading the label that spelled out the Saaz. It was sorta present. I wanted more. However, keeping in mind its target market and the competition in that market, its a good brew.

341 ml bottle. Golden orange colour with a thin but mostly lasting creamy white head. Vegetal DMS and corn aroma with a hint of spicy Saaz - but barely a hint, and not enough to keep out the fusel notes. More vegetal character in the flavour - cooked cabbage and corn - along with grainy malts, light fusels, and a light grainy, spicy, and fusel alcohol bitter finish. Light to medium bodied, lightly prickly mouthfeel though nowhere near as carbonated and fizzy as its IPA in name only older brother. Failed to meet my incredibly low expectations, and Oland/Labatt/Inbev trample on Mr. Keith’s good name and grave once again.

bottle. Another one of the numerous amounts of Boring Canadian lagers. Not bad by any means but simple.

From bottle. Well well well, a new beer from Keiths, or Labbatt’s should I say. Not keen on the lager myself but must try this. Typical sweet honey aroma from Keiths. No head, no lacing, orangey yellow in colour. Honey texture, once I get passed the honey I get a hint of citrus, just enough to mutate itself differently from the IPA. Clean and fresh, can see it being a good seller in the summer months. Judging from Mr Aaron Bouchard’s rating I didn’t regard this ale as highly, but I will be sure to sample again as I was forced to buy 24 of the little blighter’s.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2008 Yay first one to rate this new Keith’s product. Pours darker and honey colored then typical commercial lagers. Aroma smells of Keiths IPA. This one has some character to it. Nice bigger taste then most North Americans tastes like a fresh Euro. Very enjoyable slightly floral taste. Nice amount of hoppage. this beer is well balanced and well priced.
