Alexander Keith’s Nova Scotia Style Pale Ale poured a clear, golden-yellow int the glass, with mild carbonation trailing to a short lived white head. The nose was very mild, with really earthy and mild herbality from light hopping.
Alexander Keith’s Nova Scotia Style Pale Ale opened with a dry, heavily carbonated start with pronounced minerals and subtle grassy notes leading the charge. The middle was a little hollow, and light herbal notes came through in the fade to accompany the minerals... a little watery.
Alexander Keith’s Nova Scotia Style Pale Ale is fairly under-hopped for a US-style pale ale, but isn’t without its charm. It lacked body, and the weird emphasis on minerals and herbs made it taste closer to a tonic at times than an ale, but it was refreshing and showed no signs of its moderate 5.8 ABV.
