This if the first of two from the new Alexander Keith’s Hop series. I was excited when I heard they were doing this, especially since I have discovered that I like hoppy beers now. So whats better than one of my favourite beers with my new favourite beer ingredient.
The can suggested that we pour it out into a glass to release the full effect of the hops. So we did. and we released a familiar aroma. It smelled great. We tasted it and it sure tasted hoppy, but in a good way. I think they did a great job entering into a new market, since we Canadians have realized that hoppy beers are a great alternative to the same ol’ same ol’.
We had a beer on deck that was extremely hoppy, coming in at 88 IBUs, so we had to work our way up to it; This one only has 45…light weight.
