from can, pours a dark amber - almost orange with thick off-white head. lots of carbonation. medium mouthfeel. light citrus - some lemon, grapefruit on the palate with medium bitterness in the finish. dry-hopping is evident. This is an excellent beer and probably one of the first high quality macro-brewed beers I have ever had. Its a long way from the best pale ale Ive ever had, but it is still very good. I have to give this the same rating I would have given it in a blind taste test and, even if it is Keiths, this is a great easy-drinking (real) pale ale. Now, do they plan to change the name of their IPA?

440ml can from The Beer Store. Nice beer in a can. Packed full of big hoppy aromas and a dull amber colour. Full bodied in the mouth.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2014 can. Poured medium amber with a thin white head. Orange citrus aroma with a piney hop base. Medium body, crisp mouthfeel, less bitter than I thought it would have been, finishes quite clean. Caramel malt flavour, a bit graniy with some light grapefruit notes. Very drinkable, Ill be picking this up again.

Papillon (400) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2013
473 mL Can. Deep gold body with a thin fizzy off-white head. Intensely floral-grapefruit aroma with sharp grapefruit rind and lemon notes crown the light sweet malts. I am sold. The flavor speaks a light bodied ale, its aftertaste of peppery grapefruit rind hops making up for its deficiency in the malt department. A lingering grapefruit rind finish. Somehow those Cascade hops win my heart in some beer styles.

473mL can from the Lickbow. It blows my mind that Oland or InBev or whoever, is actually doing this line of single-hop Keiths varietals. Its like they almost care about hops now, holy-fucking-shit! Pours a deep orange with a nice white head. The aroma, I shit you not, actually smells like Cascade hops. Jesus fucking christ, no kidding. And not even just a hint of them, an actually respectable presence. And to top this all off, the beer even tastes like Cascade hops! What the living fuck is going on. Not much of a malt body but Im so blown away that a Keiths product tastes like hops were anywhere near it to care. The finish is citrusy and a bit thin and watery. I would gladly drink this again if I felt like supporting a macro brewery financially, which I dont. So I wont. But this was good while it lasted.

[5139-20130305] Tap. Mild resin and orange skin aroma. Clear, orange red body with a quick foamy white head. Lightly bittered grains and hoppy orange notes in the flavour. Medium body is quite carbonated. Tasty, an excellent new choice on the tap list for AK. (7/3/8/3/14) 3.5+

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. Its 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 isnt bad, could use a bit more hop flavour, but just a bit. Asides from that its actually quite nice.

341ml bottle. Pours an attractive clear ruby, with a moderate light beige head, which lasts reasonably well without leaving much lacing. Resiny citrus hops and biscuit malt make for an appealing aroma. Citrus and mild tropical hops up front lead into a decently malty mid-palate, with biscuit and light nutty flavours. More citrus hops give it a nice clean finish. I might be going against the grain here, but I actually found this to be a pretty enjoyable APA.

Deep amber pour with a fast-fading white head. The aroma is bright and orangey with a bit of marmalade like quality. Clean 2-row and a little bit of yeasty esters. Reminds me of Anchor Liberty Ale - not bad at all AK. Now - stop calling your flagship product an IPA and we'll get along just fine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
