I'm remembering enjoying this brew at London Pub in Richmond early 1992, the pub later closed and I never found O'Keefe's served anywhere again. My palate I'm still developing in order to try and identify what particulars about O'Keefe flavor made it distinctive for me. Very similar to an ale I tried at Weeping Radish in NC around the same time. But I remember the taste very well even many years later. It was enough to cement the name in memory with hopes I'd run into it again.

The ultimate nostalgia beer, reminds me of my days growing up in Hamilton, Ontario, sneaking a sixer out of my fridge and swigging a few with my buddies. Nothing truly groundbreaking here, so nostalgia will weigh heavily.

Appearance: Piss colored, quickly disappearing lace

Smell: Nonexistent. Not a bad thing, but not exactly a plus.

Taste: Hardly there. Crisp, slight hop, no metallic aftertaste which similar beers often have.

MF: Decent carbonation, pleasant experience overall.

In closing, O'Keefe is a very average beer and if not for being the brew that I was weaned on, I'd probably not care for it as much as I do. I'd buy it more often but its become a bit of a rare treat for me, O'Keefe is very hard to find outside of Canada, some border states carry it but I've never seen it south of Massachusetts. A shame really.

I used to drink this back in the early 90's.... I had a friend who moved to lake george NY.... and when he moved back he turned me on to it... lots of late night partys on the porch drinkin this stuff... it was a good canadian lager, and it went down smooth.... haven't seen it in this area (Putnam County NY) in years..

Thanks Nate! Served in a tulip.

A - A finger of quick-dissolving white foam settles to a thin ring and partial hazy cap. Transparent pale golden body with a few patches of lace.

S - White grapes, sugar, cooked corn, honey, and some nebulous overripe fruit and veggie character as well.

T - Taste is a bit better - mostly grain and bread, with a faint pear finish. There's a strange vegetal aftertaste that is somewhat unpleasant however.

M - Zesty carbonation, medium-light body, and a crisp dry finish.

D - I thought this was an adjunct lager, and in that vein it's passable. However, as an APA this is pretty bad. Sickeningly sweet aroma and "bad beer" aftertaste. Avoid...unless your name is O'Keefe.

A: Golden yellow with thin head who doesn't stay
too long, some lacing, carbonation ok.

S: grainy malt and hops.

T: a bit watery for me, with some malt, it's kind
of ordinary beer.

M: normal for a macro beer.

D: nothing special.

Not so easy to find, you got to go to smaller town to have it.

Poured a medium straw hue with a one and a half finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and good lacing.

The smell featured a grainy malt, cooked corn and a grassy hop.

The taste consisted of a doughy and grainy malt, sweet corn and a faint balancing hop.

The mouthfeel was toward the raw side of the style.

Overall a relatively bland ale that doesn't do all that much for me.
