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 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.

OldGrowth (2906) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2012
Half pint at brewery. Good aroma, sweet, nutty, in the yeasty kind of way. Brownish orange color, ok head and lace. Bittersweet flavor. Medium body creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. Nice session ale.

tmoreau (2902) - 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.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - JUN 19, 2007
On tap @ Ballast Point (Linda Vista) - Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. Aroma is hops and light esters. Flavor is hops, light esters, and light caramel malt. Nice balance. A light to medium body beer. Very easy drinking. This would be a good beer to convert the non-believers.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - FEB 14, 2009
Tap at the Old Grove brewery. Light gold pour with a nice white head. Clean crisp flavor, light on the palate. Not alot of aroma, but this would be really good session beer if available on a regular basis.

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

hawthorne00 (2770) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 26, 2015
Can. Pale amber with an inch of loosish white head that sticks around. Aroma of grapefruit, passionfruit, peach, crackers. 7 Light bodied, really nothing in the middle. A little sweetness with crackers and slight toast. A hint of butterscotch - maybe an attempt to fill things out a bit? Light tropical notes, more grapefruit and some lemon. Dry with moderate bitterness at the end. Sure, the alcohol is lowish but I couldn’t drink several pints of this. OK dust-cutter.

Spab (2755) - 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.

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
