I remember the first time I had Alexander Keith's. I was on a business trip to Vancouver and having dinner with some people I met there. After tasting it I called the waitress back over and asked her if she brought me the wrong beer because it didn't taste like an IPA. She said she brought me what I ordered and one of the Canadian guys I was with explained to me that that's what Alexander Keith's tastes like and it's not like a real IPA. I guess you live and you learn.
