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.

Can (12 oz) bought @ Winooski Beverage Warehouse.

Appearance: Clear amber/golden with a small off-white head and little lacing.

Aroma: A burst of oily hops at first, but it dissipates really quickly to leave the place to toasted malts, light resin and mineral notes.

Taste: Mild. Toasted malts, light caramel, light resin, mineral notes and light to moderate bitterness.

Palate: Light body. Medium carbonation. Thin mouthfeel, almost watery. Somewhat dry finish. Mild mineral finish.

Overall: There’s some very low abv beers that you can’t tell they are low abv... that’s not the case with this one. It’s super easy to drink, but it lacks of body to support the hops and the mouthfeel is too thin.

Aurelius (4963) - 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.

Draught at TJ’s: Aroma of cirtus, grapefruit, and hops. Very nice aroma for such a low alcohol beer. Poured amber in color with a small, white head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Slightly hazy. Lightly sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of hops, citrus, grapefruit, malt, and slight caramel. Medium body. Tingly, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Medium sweet, medium to heavily bitter, hop, grapefruit, malt, and caramel finish. This beer demonstrates that 3.5%ABV does not mean no flavor. I am impressed.

Pours a cloudy golden yellow. Aromas of citrus and a little of the tropics. Smooth easy drinking with flavors of citrus, grass, and yeast.

Cybercat (4884) - Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Comes out of the tap a beautiful golden Amber - not much head, but that is an artifact of the pour. Aroma is SERIOUSLY hoppy - like getting a good whiff of fresh-cut pine, evergreem and woody, plus fruity hints. Bold flavor makes you feel as though you’re drinking a liquid pine tree. This is a brewski for serious hop fans! Fruity and malty hints come through as well. Texture is firm and very lively and sassy, leaving a woody evergreen finish. Get on an even keel if hops are your bag!

sonnycheeba (4875) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 8, 2015
Can. Pours clear amber. Aroma is orange peel, pale malts, light citrus, and faint grassy notes. Flavor is fresh hop bitterness with a dry malt base and faint toast. Light/medium body.

SlovakSniper (4829) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
Une petite canette. Un liquide à la robe légèrement ambrée. Une tête un peu sale et passablement solide. Des arômes assez soutenus de houblons en herbes qui évoquent aussi des parfums d’agrumes blancs et de pin. Des céréales plutôt terreuses comme représentation maltée. Des saveurs de chanvre, de pamplemousse, d’herbes, de grains légèrement caramélisés et d’aiguilles de pin sèches. Une bouche vivante qui est loin d’être aqueuse. Une finale amère de moyenne intensité et de moyenne durée. Évidement, le genre de truc qui se boit tout seul.

rumproasts (4828) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2015
can. Golden with one finger head. Very light body with big citrus hops. Some minerally, earthy notes as well. I really dug the crisp hop flavors from this. Medium bitterness.

Copper color with a medium head. Very strong pine and tangerine aroma. Moderate bitterness. Piney and abrassive. Dry maltiness.

travita (4783) - 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.
