Alexander Keith's Nova Scotia Style Pale Ale

Alexander Keith's is a Canadian brewery.  Its beers in the US are brewed by InBev (Anheuser-Busch) and the bottle shows A Keith's Brewing of St. Louis, Missouri.  I don't know if they are still fairly independent in Canada and just brewed in the US by InBev, or if they are totally owned by InBev now.

This 5.4% ABV beer pours a dark honey golden, turning orange.  There is a quarter-inch of pure white foam.  The aroma is malted barley, peaty and lightly smokey.  The taste is fruity, cream and orange marmalade on toast.  Ever so slightly sweet, but finishing with a hint of dryness.  It is nicely carbonated, fully, but not overly.  This is a quite interesting beer.
