According to the press material, and the Keith's rep I spoke to at the launch, these are all-grain, all-malt beers. And they taste like it as well.

What would be a similar beer in terms of flavour and quality?

The cascade hopping was originally great, but it certainly diminished when they moved production from the brewpub. Tighter filtering? I don't know. My old neighbour actually had a Brew on Premise with Duggan decades ago (I think it was on Laird). In those days they used extract and steeped grains and essentially developed what became Tankhouse. Duggan makes some great beer, and I was a huge fan of his brewpub, but I think this one still seems like an old school homebrewing effort. Of course he's no longer responsible for that one... and the #9 was better.
