Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good can beer.

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.

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.

can. Golden with small head. Very mild malt body and some dull hops make for a rather mediocre pale ale.

Can in A squared sweating profusely at the HGI pool. Nice pale ale that had buckets of orange and pineapple notes. Light bitterness overall but very refreshing. Nice.

12oz Can. Thanks Sean! Leafy green minty aroma. Flavors bring me home. There’s a distinct yeast, mineral, and malt character underneath all Keweenaw beers. Some might point to fermentation flaws, but I’m really appreciating the unique blend for reminding me of the beers from home. Even the hop use is distinct, with a slightly metallic and grassy finish. This gets a little estery and cereal-grain focused in the middle, but maintains some hoppy Pale Ale-ness.
