look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5
341ml bottle poured into a pint glass. ABV 5%.
A - Poured a clear pale yellow with a thin white head. Head reduced to surface bubbles. Minimal lacing.
S - Light grains, dash of something sweet, and hint of grass. Very underwhelming.
T - Mild sweetness, hint of sour, hint of bitterness. Not enough to really pin down any particular flavours.
M - Medium-low carbonation, medium-low body, dry finish.
O - This "IPA" sure is a disappointment. This is standard macro fare. Bland in every way. Relabelling this as a pale ale or blond ale would be more accurate. I don't refuse a Keith's when offered as I've drank plenty over the years but if I want a Keith's that's more of a true IPA, their Hop Series beers are much better drinks.

473 ml can served cold into a pint glass. Purchased from LCBO for 2.35 CDN.
Appearance - clear pale golden color with a finger and a half of white head which recedes quickly and coalesces into a small white cap. Some effervescent bubbles rise from the centre of the glass.
Smell - weak grainy aroma. Some metallic mustiness in there to which is odd. Not a great smelling beer.
Taste - kinda like the nose, not much other than mild grains and a slight bit of bitterness. Really mild and pretty much an AAL crossed with and EIPA. There's just not much else there.
Mouthfeel - medium light body and soft carbonation. Would like a more lively mouthfeel.
Overall- pretty bland beer, lacking the crispness that good examples of the style usually have. I used to think this was a pretty good beer, and while inoffensive, there's not much exciting or different about this one. Still goes down easy enough on the first hot and humid day of 2014.
