Recommended by a bartender in Toronto when I was looking for a honey brown beer. I wasn't a big fan. Nothing to write home about. There are much better beers out there... Try another. :(

Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a red to brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute leaving a slight lacing.
The smell was a dull honey as it didn’t really seem to be real honey, something just seemed off.
The taste was kind of a sour to sweet weirdness going on.
On the palate, I’m thinking it was about a light on the body but I’m not exactly finding this too sessionable.
Overall, I’m not exactly sure what happened with this one but I don’t see myself getting this one again. drougkolya (276) - Otterburn Park, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 30, 2011
Bière de type dark lager de 5% d’alcool, peu houblonné, belle équilibre, rafraichissante. ExpendableHero (925) - Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2011
This was a pretty decent brew. Listed as Alexander Keith’s Brown Ale on the menu. Dark copper beer, with an off-white head. Barely any aromas here, just some skunky stuff. tastes of sweet caramel, some hints of bitter toffee, lots of malt. Unoffensive,pleasant, and easy to drink.

Tap at the Elephant and Castle-Deep copper liquid sits beneath a cap of white froth. Grainy, cereal nose with some caramel malts and a smidgen of hops. Sweet fruity caramel malts with some biscuit and slightly bitter hops. Assertive in the carbonation. Standard fare.

On tap - Montana steak house, Niagara. Ruby-brown body, frothy white head. Bitter honey aroma, same taste to boot, however has a nice carbonated sweet finish swanvally666 (14) - Swan Valley, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 14, 2008
Newfie beer sucks. This was watery and flavorless. Id still have some to get a buzz going though. EKGoldings (666) - Radford, Virginia, USA - DEC 14, 2007
Had this at the crow on draft last time I was home. Came in out of a rain storm to get dry and wanted something different. Aftertaste was too sweet for the modest hop/malt flavors. Unbalanced. albert007 (415) - Penobsquis, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 17, 2007
Light golden brown, whitish head. Slight candy aroma and a bit of wet cardboard and a hop or 2. Flavor is ok with decent mouthfeel and a crisp finish leaving the candy(honey?) on the tongue. Better than most Keith’s, and at least it’s honest and doesn’t claim fo be something it isnt. ChrisThomson (522) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2007
Tried this at Keith’s brewery in Halifax. Much worse than than "IPA", has a bit of honey-sweetness to give it a bad aftertaste.
