Can. Poured a clear copper color with an average to large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate citrus hop and malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good can beer. crossovert (12934) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Draft. Golden. Pour. Just a mindblowingly nondescript and average pale ale. Not much here. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2016
Draught at the KBC, Houghton, MI.
Clear deep golden color with a tiny white head.
Fruity sweet hops, mild bitterness and a lot of caramel malt in the aroma.
The flavor is dry hops, moderate bitterness and caramel malt. Easy.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Sampled at St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Gold pour, almost no aroma, mild grassy hop taste - just okay.

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 (6289) - 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. Skyview (6055) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Picked up a single 12-oz can from Riley’s Wines of the World in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear golden amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some excellent lacing Aroma of grassy hops and caramel malt and a touch of Earl Grey tea. Taste is medium bodied with flavors of multi-grain malt and grassy hops. Finish is semi-dry with a dry grassy hop aftertaste that hides most of the caramel malt grain flavors. A hoppy and herbal amber ale is a closer style to describe this pale ale. superspak (5603) - Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2015
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.
