Beerman6686 (5343) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2014
This poured a darker golden color with a white head. Aroma was of grass, pale malt, and metal. Flavor was similar, bland malty and.uninviting.

nuplastikk (5072) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 13, 2013
12oz can. FIltered tan-orange with a creamy off-white head. Bright golden malt and noble hop aroma, some earthy citrus too. Really well balanced, leaning towards the fresh doughy malt tones, but still has a respectable hop balance. Tame and sort of standard, but drinkable and enjoyable too. Has a similar mouthfeel and subdued Canadian/English character to the other Keweenaw beers I’ve had.

rumproasts (4149) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 6, 2013
can. Golden with small head. Very mild malt body and some dull hops make for a rather mediocre pale ale.

Murky apricot with a medium off white quickly fading crown. Aroma of grains and malt with mild floral hops. Taste is funky with off flavors, caramel, floral hops and mild bitterness.

12oz can 11/28/12 (Soo Corner Store)-43° in Shaker-Pours a medium golden with a small off white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, and malt. Taste of the same with more citrus and hops coming out. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and exceeded my expectations.

12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 8/22/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/floral hops and moderate pale malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon/orange zest, light pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good complexity and robustness of citrus/floral hops and moderate pale malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice pale ale style. All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of citrus/floral hops and moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
