Bottle to Sam Adams fancy pint glass, beer pours a transparent dark amber with a white head. Nothing remarkable, and it looks like beer. Aroma is not very intense but carries complexity...caramel, vanilla, lots of floral notes, slight citrus, spices.... Of note though is a faint burnt rubber smell. Taste is decent, good malty backbone with a nice hop flavour and bitterness. It’s pretty subtle. Palate is thin bodied, co2 medium, balanced pretty well. Overall: Impressed, not a bad beer at all. I had no idea this was a big brewery until I researched a bit. Honestly this isn’t bad, could use a bit more hop flavour, but just a bit. Asides from that it’s actually quite nice. berkshirejohn (6655) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2014
473 ml can from Duty Free, Fort Erie, ONT. A golden amber pour with a billowing, but fast fading, cream head; malty aroma; carmale malt taste with just the faintest trace of Cascade. Disappointing in comparison with the Hallertauer version. Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle. I actually somewhat enjoy this beer. I like what they are trying to do, by showcasing different hop types, and they do it pretty well for a big brewery. Taste more like an IPA than the original Keiths. Has a nice floral aroma. It taste of a citrus, floral, bread, but in a much lighter way. It goes down quite smooth with a low bitterness to it. They must be doing this to get macro lager drinkers to try a little flavour for once, and it is not a bad attempt. markas101 (2501) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 2, 2014
33 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada via Costco. Tasted alongside Hallertau and Galaxy. Similar appearance for all three, galaxy perhaps slightly lighter. Aroma is not very distinct, some passion fruit, and a faint resin. Flavour is weak, some bitterness, better than the Hallertau. JJRousseau (1) - - APR 27, 2014 does not count
Aroma: A hint of malt, but almost no detectable hop aroma. The dominant aroma is alcohol.
Appearance: Clear, moderate amber, poor head retention.
Flavour: Not very bitter, and almost no hop flavour. Disappointing considering it is supposed to be a special cascade hop version. The malt flavour falls flat on the tongue, and it is dominated by bready overtones.
Mouthfeel: Carbonation is low and the body is weak. It tastes like mildly carbonated water.

Clear brew with a lively carbonation. Muted aroma, has a sweet corn aroma and a pilsner like quality that meets up with slightly tropical hoppy aroma. Light brew with a watery profile and an light hoppy finish. Better than their other brews but this is bad for the style. RhetoricalAns (973) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 24, 2014
Draft. Medium copper pour with a thin fizzy head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is grassy, weak hops. Taste is similar to regular Keiths with a bit more hop flavour, though not really bitter. Better than the original but not great. daniel0017 (455) - Yukon, CANADA - MAR 22, 2014
Red / amber body. No head. Not unpleasant or pleasant aroma, just OK. Thin, watery in mouth. Good hop infused malt water. AgentAle (1812) - Fort Mcmurray, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 15, 2014
Aroma is grassy with sulpur notes. The cascade aromas are pretty subtle. Taste is a sweet maltiness with pale caramel notes. The hoppiness is earthy and pretty basic. Appearance is a gold with thin frothy head. MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle from the Keiths Hop sampler pack. Aroma of wet stale hops. Tastes like the typical Keiths wet, old, grassy hops. Not really different from their original and therefore not great. The other two in the pack were still not great but definitely better than this.
