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.

On tap @ O’Briens: Fills the pint sized shake with a solid golden color and firm foam topping. Aroma is dominated by hops and really lets it be known by the most quickest whiff. Flavor allows the hops to be apparent still but it lacks a full body and gives me the imperssion that it was watered down. Maybe not maybe so i still enjoyed it and thats all that matters.

Minderbinder (2198) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2015
Can 355ml. Pours amber with high frothy light-beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of citrus, flowers, malt, pine, tropical fruits. Taste is of bitterness, citrus, tropical fruits, malt, very slight earth, some acid. Palate: Light-medium body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Quite good. Tasty. I was a bit set back by the color, but this is well balanced.

Orange with a white head. Citrus, sweet malt, floral notes. Smooth and easy going. Solid brew but not sure if I'd go back. Something about it puts me off.

Can.

Oh man, this is pretty close to the perfect session IPA for me. Pours orange with a fluffy off-white head. Massive tangerine aroma with a bit of pineapple and something else tropical--lychee? A bit of crackery malt on the back. Good citrus hop flavors (I don’t get any of the onion that Prufrock does, and usually I’m super sensitive to onion/garlic). Super crushable. At 3.8 ABV, one can crush away. I love it. I hope I can find a regular source.

tl;dr summary: Perfect ISA.

Draft at San Diego Brewing Company. Golden yellow pour with a decent head. Aromas were very fruity, citrus, peach, some pineapple. Flavors were nice too. A bit more malt than in the nose, and the hops were a touch more bitter than fruity. Not Too Shabby

malrubius (1956) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Can from Meditrina. Clear copper with lasting head and some lace. Spicy bready aroma with some citrus. Mild biscuity fruity sweetness with assertive slightly harsh spicy hop bite made harsh by aggressive carbo. Light and a little watery and not covered up by excessive bitterness. Good.
