COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with 100% columbus hops and loaded with hop flavor and aroma, Keebarlin’ Pale Ale takes aim at what a session ale should be. No matter where you’re headed, our highway 128 series paves a way for a "slow lope’n beeson tree." * (That’s Boontling for smooth ride.)

Can from Whole Foods. Pours clear gold with 1-finger frothy off-white head. Nose is pale malt, resiny hops. Tastes ale malty, with piney hops, black peppery spice, and a watery finish.

a little too heavy on the biscuit malt for me to consider a standout. Otherwise a nicely balanced and fine tuned sessionable pale ale. Light but not watery, fairly fruity with citrus and hints of tropical and floral notes as well.

It’s sessionable, but not shy on hop content. Soft gold in color with a head that resembles a brown recluse’s nest, it looks harmless. It has a pleasant, grainy and sweet aroma with really nice notes of spruce and limes. I’m very glad that this pale ale actually smells like hops. The first thing you notice about the beer in the mouth is its softness, then a pilsener-like maltiness and extremely light palate - so light that you can taste its barely caramelized malts. Although this has a really nice hop nose, the hops are present but tame in the mouth, and dissipate quickly. Well, at least until its clean finish, when a little hop flavor joins a touch of bitterness. It is a very sessionable ale, and the nice bitter punch in the finish is enough to make you keep drinking it (quickly).

RABinCO (1274) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Can into a glass. Pours a golden hay with a persistent, fluffy white head. Aroma is piney, grass, light sweet cereal. Taste is assertively bitter with a pleasant fresh pine and citrus punch. Slight sweetness. Dry finish. Overall tons of flavor for a sessionable pale ale. Feel like this one is way underrated and would probably be more hyped if marketed as a Session IPA. Very similar to Founders All Day.

can offering..pours a golden color with slight head..nose is slight vegetal...bit of lemon...light bodied with not much complexity..has a little of that malty trademark characteristic of some of their other offferings..best thing going on here is some pretty good lacing..otherwise a fairly bland pale ale with not character behind it....

Beerman6686 (4302) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2014
This one poured a golden yellow with a white head. Aroma was of grassy and bitter hops and light caramel. Flavor was bland grassy hops, light sweetness and light grapefruit.

KyotoLefty (6339) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 28, 2014
Can from CBB. Nice summery nose, grapefruit, grass, a bit of light caramel and biscuits. Cloudy, deep orange with a low head. Great citrus hop flavors, orange, grapefruit, some tropical stuff, and grass, backed up nicely by bready malts and with a good bitterness to finish. I like this.

Light pale yellow pour with a white head. Slight citrus aroma from the hops, lemon, lime, tangerine. Taste is pretty balanced but watered down. Not too flavorful. Light body.

nealblind (750) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Orange yellow pour frothy white head. Aroma of grain, metal, slight peach, herbal hops. Tastes grainy, resinous. Very sessionable. Hops are enough to give flavor to each sip, but not much more.

deyholla (6615) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Can. Pours a clear light gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has sweet grains, a hint of biscuit and a grass backing. Flavor starts with grass and a hint of pine with a backbone of butterscotch and biscuit.
