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.

3.8% 605 yen can from Tsutaya Saketen drunk at the airport. It pours a deep gold with a thick fluffy off white head. The nose is a great hoppy pine. Medium bodied with a smooth chewy mouthfeel. The taste is green piney hops though this has been in my bag all day so I doubt I am at the correct serving temperature. For those who like piney hop notes this is the perfect session IPA, myself I prefer fruity hops. Still a damn good session IPA with a satisfying body and good flavor not an easy trick for low ABV beers.

Pours a clear golden brown from the can with fluffy white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is great hoppy citrus notes that go into nice malty backbone. Taste follows, way more than the 3.8% abv would make you assume. Very nice beer, definitely will be drinking a few of these.

tmoreau (2823) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2015
Shared 12 oz. can donated to our tasting session by the local Wirtz rep, poured to snifters, showing a clear, amber hue, with a presentable, but short lived layer of off white, head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was dank, expressive greenery, herbs, and a touch of citrus. Light bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste was similar notes as the aroma, added a bit of pine, and expressed more of the full flavored, dark side of the hops. Quite surprising for such a low abv., session brew.

Spab (2723) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2015
Growler from Premier Gourmet. Pours a clear orange colour with modest-sized off-white head. Aroma has big resiny hops, some floral and fruity character as well as some graininess. Flavour is solid resin, some floral hops, a little citrus and an underlying graininess. Decent bitterness in finish. Good one.

Tap, O’Briens. Pours light golden orange in color. Mildly hoppy aroma. Good malty balance with the bitterness. Good APA.

pineypower (2685) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Pours out a nice copper color with a small white head. Aroma is of sweet citrusy hops, light floral notes, some tropical fruit and light cracker. Taste is complex for so low Abv. Nice citrus, tropical fruit light cracker malts. Damn lots of flavor and super crushable

maekchu (2607) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 17, 2014
Can. Piney nose, thick floral notes, too. Medium straw color, thick head. Pine, mixed tropical fruit. goes to moderate bitterness, and has some hop tracks in final. Thin-medium body. Light enough and tasty enough, as a session beer.

sloth (2607) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Small, tight, white head, good lace and a clear, copper hued appearence. Nice flowery, grassy nose with light fruity citrusy notes. Nice mouthfeel, good carbonation, lightly oily and a hint resiny, clean and light. Dry, pale malts, nicely biscuity and freshly grainy, slightly juicy hops and a clean dry finish with a balanced bitterness. Cool little quaffer! Pretty tasty, clean aromas, nice mouth feel for such a small brew. Cans from statelineliquors.
