The beer pours a golden-red colour with a very thin tan coloured ring for a cap. There is definitely the citrusy notes of the cascade hops, as well as some weak caramel notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour doesn't live up to the aroma. Some weak hoppy grapefruit notes mixed in with the infamous dishsoap notes. Better than their flagship IPA, but still 'crafty' as opposed to 'craft'

Pours a copper light brown, with almost no carbonation, no noteworthy aroma to speak of. Taste is alright for a macro brewery, good try Labbatt's!

Blonde beer with some carbonation and a small head. Smell of citrus with bread notes and some peppery aromas. Taste of citrus with sweet malts and a noticeable bitterness. From the current (end of 2015/start of 2016) hop ales lineup, I think it's the best one, the most bitter one too.

Alexander Keith's Cascade Hop Ale


The look of it. A golden amber color to it. No head. Medium carbonation


The smell of it; light hops


The taste of it; Very light. Not very balanced on the taste. A bit disappointing here. Maybe more hops I guess. It just need a bit more work on it and it would be a avery good beer.

So overall would I recommend it ? No, for me there is not enough to recommend this beer. It needed to be a bit more work on this beer. It just missing something

Me and my boys drank this last night and it had me twerkin like all night long. My boy Dave got so tipsy he tried to get my face pregnant! Anyway, the dark, robust essence of the Cascade hops, together with the unobtrusive blend of grapefruit hints made for a delicious little event. One could conclude that Keith's could make a good statement with little else.
