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.

Draught. Pours a very clear amber color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is nicely floral with some slight pine and slight pepper elements to it; awesome! Taste is light and clean, very fresh, and not too bitter. Easy drink.

Tap@bishops, gamla. Amber. Real nice fruity hoppy nose. Grapefruit, caramels, peaches. Soft nice body. Doesn’t feel watery, but light though. Hoppy lingering finish. Good session ipa. Understandably a bit thin in the middle, but very enjoyable still.

boFNjackson (4195) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Tap... Poured copper/amber-orange with a thin, white-ish head. Cracker-like and bready malts balanced a faint hop character. Like it says, it’s session ale. Very drinkabale, paired well with all sorts of food too. Hops were earth and grassy, but too floral or citrusy.

Big hop aroma. All kinds of citrus going on. Full copper color. White head settles to a thick ring. Flavor is a hop bomb with citrus and soda.

This beer arrives from the tap a darker color than I was expecting; it is an amber, lightly hazy hue that is topped by a thin, pale tan colored head that is typical for a tap pour. There is a nice, clean hop citrus aroma to this that has notes of orange zest, some bright tangerine character, grapefruit, and a solid lychee note. There is a hint of crystal malt character here in the nose that adds light notes of toasted grain and caramel.

This has a nice biting bitterness to it as it first hits my tongue. It is quite dry which mutes the citrus hop flavors, but not completely as notes of grapefruit, tangerine, spicy citrus oil, a touch of lychee and a lingering apricot note in the finish are all noticeable. This is nice and light feeling on the palate, the hops actually provide some astringent mouthfeel that makes this beer seem a bit fuller than it actually is. Some pine and menthol flavors are also here and help to add to the hop complexity. There is just a hint of malt backbone here with notes of toasted grain and a touch of caramel.

This is very nice, I could drink a lot of this if the alcohol is anywhere near 4%, unfortunately there seems to be quite a bit of conflicting information on the actual alcohol content of this beer. This is perhaps not complext enough, but the mix of dominant hop character and light malt backbone in a low-alcohol form makes for a very nice beer.

Can. Appearance is orange to copper. Aroma is a lovely bouquet of fresh hops, malt, citrus and spice. Flavor matches, and is quite lovely! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can from Hippo Beers. Amber brown, big foamy head. Woody hop aroma. Boiled sweet citrus hop flavour. Bitter hoppy aftertaste. Really well balanced good example of this style.

Draft at the brewery. Pours opaque amber with a fizzy, bubbly white head. Feel is very light, but there is a strong, dry hop presence, with some light citrus and light resin. Light body and low carbonation. Light aroma of hops, lemon, and resin.
