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.

cheap (4887) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2012 Had this on tap at the double wide. Clody light brown with a clean fresh somewhat sterile aroma. Quite strong in personality for a beer that is less than 4%. Flavorful hops for a light beer but it goes down rather easy. A little watery on the palate. Good amount of co2. Medium bitter linger for a finish.

joeneugs (4872) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 12, 2014
12 oz. can. It pours a deep golden color with a foamy off white head. The aroma is very floral, leafy and citrusy with mild hints of caramel in the background but very hop forward. The flavor has more leafy, herbal, floral hop notes with some grapefruit and lightly toasted caramel. The bitterness is a little strong in the finish, and it has a little more caramel than I would like, but the hop character is up front and center. The strong bitterness gives keeps it dry in the finish as well. Overall, pretty nice, but I would’ve liked less specialty malt and less bitterness.

ClarkVV (4849) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 8, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2015 Draught at Brava, 7/5/15
Medium-copper with lighter blonde tints and a large, well-retained white head.
Plenty of citrus and light tropical fruitiness in the nose is clean, as allows from these guys and leads to light traces of biscuits and dry caramel. Big notes of grapefruit, softer meyer lemon-like juiciness and touches of pine and mango round it out. No alcohol, obviously and quite clean and bright (and low on resin).
The flavor is amazingly full, robust and deliciously hoppy without being overdone. Not something one can just chug too easily, as there is a good deal of bitterness. Quite impressive they’ve got this much flavor and body in to a beer of this size. I was generally treating this as a sipper, not because it was too bitter/resinous or anything, but because each mouthful was quite enjoyable and the flavor lingered nicely. May actually buy a six pack of this soon.

Aurelius (4834) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2015 Easily one of the best session IPA’s/APA’s that I’ve had. Clear, amber. Not sweet but not parched, tasty esters. Got to chatting with Joe Ostaszewski, former FSU footballer about his Saving Justin child obesity crusade, and it seemed rude to take replete notes. Still, very nice. On tap, Brass Tap, Tallahassee Midtown.

On tap at ChurchKey. Nice bold, orange body with big head. Nose is hops, pine, citrus. Taste is also floral, pines, grapefruit, caramel. Nice texture. Easy finish.

On tap at Good Dog, pours amber with nice white head and medium lacing. Aromas and taste of grass, citrus, caramel, floral hops, malts. Very dry and bitter finish. Pretty good pale ale overall.

mansquito (4649) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2014
New Beer Distributors, NYC can ($2): Pours light copper with a frothy white head. Aroma is grapefruit, lemon, and pine with light malt backbone. Taste is lightly bitter hops. Body is a little on the watery side. This is very light even for this characteristically light style. Refreshing and even a little sweet. It is kind of what I was looking for.

travita (4642) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 17, 2015
Copper colored beer from a can. Mostly clear with a cream colored head. The smell is malty, caramel, pine, fruit, and good. The taste is pine, bitterness, some sharpness, fruit, good. Good overall tiny bit harsh that leads to a slight off balance.
