Alexander Keith's Tartan Ale (Canada - Nova Scotia - Halifax)

Alexander Keith's Tartan Ale (Canada - Nova Scotia - Halifax) 6.1%

A delicious smoky, malty mix with sweetness and a refreshing carbonation. It doesn't taste like a beer with a high alcohol content but at 6.1% it certainly qualifies as a strong beer. A glowing brown, like a polished penny in a glass. Keith's Tartan Ale (a Scottish Ale) is a surprisingly complicated beer for a mega-brewery, it's a good beer and a hopeful sign that Keith's Brewery may have some interest in making some beers with more character than the typical bland international lager.

Since it is only out for a limited time: Go out and get this beer while it's available!


  1. Thanks for this review. I've been reluctant to pick this one up because it is a mega brew. I will give it a try.

    P.S. I share your passion for good beer. I have some reviews to share, would you consider "guest blogger" contributions?


  2. Thanks JH1 I hope you like it.

  3. I thought is was a good brew! Like the smokey dark beer!!!! I still feel like something is missing....but I am not that refined to figure out what it is!~ I hope they keep working on it!!! Great job!
