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 cloudy golden yellow. Aromas of citrus and a little of the tropics. Smooth easy drinking with flavors of citrus, grass, and yeast.

SlovakSniper (4984) - 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.

Draught at TJ’s: Aroma of cirtus, grapefruit, and hops. Very nice aroma for such a low alcohol beer. Poured amber in color with a small, white head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Slightly hazy. Lightly sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of hops, citrus, grapefruit, malt, and slight caramel. Medium body. Tingly, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Medium sweet, medium to heavily bitter, hop, grapefruit, malt, and caramel finish. This beer demonstrates that 3.5%ABV does not mean no flavor. I am impressed.

rumproasts (4862) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2015
can. Golden with one finger head. Very light body with big citrus hops. Some minerally, earthy notes as well. I really dug the crisp hop flavors from this. Medium bitterness.

travita (4828) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 17, 2015
Copper colored beer from a can. Mostly clear with a cream colored head. The smell is malty, caramel, pine, fruit, and good. The taste is pine, bitterness, some sharpness, fruit, good. Good overall tiny bit harsh that leads to a slight off balance.

nearbeer (4826) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 16, 2016
12 oz.can. Clear amber with almost a film of lasting bubbles. Aroma is resin, earthy leaf, orange zest, toasted pecan and a bit of toffee. Flavor is a very nice mix of the same, with a steady drying undercurrent of resin and a bit of white pepper. Body is more light than medium and has a bit too much fizz, but offers a very sessionable dry-leaning balance.

Marheb (4743) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Un nez splendide aussi puissant que leur ipa. Une charge juteuse plus qu’intéressante, amertume moyenne, croustillance extrême avec un certain sucre résiduel qui disparait totalement au final.

kidmartinek (4621) - austin, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2014
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.
