COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ten different malts and six different hops (Ahtanum, Cluster, and Spalt to name a few) combine to create this full-flavored, small beer. Even Keel features a silky malt backbone and a bright hop flavor and aroma that come from the late kettle additions and dry hopping with 1.5 pounds per barrel. Even more layers of flavor are created with fermentation being done by two strains of yeast. This session ale is herbaceous with additional citrus aromas of lemon and grapefruit. The orange to copper hue draws you in and the low alcohol volume keeps you coming back for more.

Towey1989 (1450) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2015
Can. Pours a clear deep golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, some lemon, pine, slight caramel and spicy, floral hops. Taste is similar of grapefruit, orange, pine, slight caramel, subtle earthiness and spicy, floral hops. Light bodied, quite a thin texture and moderate carbonation. A short, spicy hop bitterness in the finish. Well hopped for a low ABV session IPA, a very citrusy, spicy hop bitterness in this. Little thin but still extremely drinkable.

Scottishchris (624) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2015
Can from bottledog Edinburgh. Copper orange with small white head. Malty citrus and caramel hop nose, really fresh. Medium light body, soft fizz. More malts but with fairly hefty bitterness. Stoned fruit and lemon. Long bitter finish. Smells amazing, not quite as tropical as the bravertown neck oil for instance.

DuffMan (8813) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2015
Bottle. Medium golden hue with an average white head. Green leafy hop character, pale malts, assertive bitterness. Lots of character for such a low ABV, but the bitterness is a bit out of balance.

Really enjoyed this low-alcohol, full-flavored hop bomb. Not long ago, you really couldn’t find "small beer" that was packing this much flavor, but Ballast really came through on this one! Taste like an assertive IPA. Nice job. Multi 12oz can experience.
