Can: Poured an amber color ale with a medium white foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of light dry floral hops is more subtle then I had expected. Taste is also dominated by subtle notes of dry floral hops with a lightly sweet caramel malt base. Body is a bit light with good carbonation. Malt base is too sweet and hops profile lacks in character.

Pours a dark gold/light copper colour with a little over a thumbs worth of egg shell white head that quickly dissipates. Smells of caramel, biscuits, vanilla, toffee and yeast. Not much hop presence in the aroma. Tastes a bit hoppier, with grass and spice hops coming through. Still, rather malty for what I'm assuming they are marketing as an IPA. Mouthfeel is mid body and smooth. Overall, a decent offering, but I prefer the cascade hop ale.

A: Orange colour, no head, clear.

S: Some alcohol, corn, hint of grass, vegital.

T: Where did the flavour go. Hop flavours are low, malt is low. Bitterness is very low. Again, Keiths makes an ale that resembles more like a lager.

M: Good carbonation, thin body, low bitterness.

O: Fail!

Macro outfits always seem to have a tough time pulling off specialty beers. By the time they're done they've typically dumbed it down to some sort of lowest common denominator in order to suit unadventurous beer drinkers and keep the penny-pinching accountants happy by not spending money on stuff like ingredients.

After AK's attempts at whites, red, browns, blondes, etc., etc., I wasn't expecting much here and they didn't disappoint. Same soap, new box.

Pours amber orange with a moderate head that quickly settles to a ring and a patchy film. The hops are there, but they're hidden beneath more malt and alcohol than you'd expect from something that fronts a hop variety. Same taste-wise, with malts dominating what should be a hoppy beer. Mouthfeel and taste pretty much anonymous. A touch more interest than your average macro, but overall nothing to write home about.
