Tasting Alexander Keith’s Nova Scotia Style Beers

Alexander Keith was a Scotsman who moved to Canada in the early 1800s. He got into the beer business and started making Scottish-style brews. 200 years later, his company is still going and it’s bringing three new beers to America — they’re actually new versions of the company’s Canadian brews, which are slightly different. These are actually brewed in cooperation with Anheuser-Busch in St. Louis. The beers are now available in 22 states.

On video from Halifax, Nova Scotia, I had the pleasure to taste these brews virtually (online) along with Brewmaster Emeritus Graham Kendall.

All beers are 5.4% alcohol.

Alexander Keith’s Nova Scotia Style Lager – A little nutty, caramel character is strong. A little sweet, it’s quite refreshing and easygoing, but it’s stronger and bigger in body than your usual lager. A-

Alexander Keith’s Nova Scotia Style Pale Ale – Very mild for a pale ale, lightly hopped and pretty easygoing. Foamier, but a little lighter in body than the lager. Just about as enjoyable, but less complex. B+

Alexander Keith’s Nova Scotia Style Brown Ale – Bigger, with strong cinnamon and nutmeg character. A fun, fireside-style beer but, again, sweeter than you might be prepared for. B+

  1. I wonder which of these is the one marketed in Canada as “Keith’s India Pale Ale”… or “India Pale Lager” as it might be better known…
