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.

Pours a light orange color with white head. Nice fresh hoppy aroma, with citrus and grapefruit. The flavor is citrus, bready malt, and floral hops in the finish. Balanced and drinkable.

Drank from can solid light hops with some pine and citrus flavors follow suit with some zippiness. Solid session ipa.

Tasted on tap at brewery during the RBSG 2008. This pale ale pours a medium amber color from the tap. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is grapefruity and floral. A medium to lighter bodied Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and citrusy. A touch of peach as well. Light and refreshing. Good flavors, at 3.5% alcohol this would be a great session ale. I could see drinking this on the porch on a warm summer afternoon. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

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.

cheap (5305) - 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.

jkwood04 (5280) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 7, 2015
12oz can in a tulip. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral and earthy hops, some pale and light caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same with some bitterness at the end. Average texture. A pretty good session IPA, but not the best beer ever.

tom10101 (5271) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
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.

Cybercat (5111) - 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!

SlovakSniper (5068) - 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.

Aurelius (5068) - 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.
