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.

My Bottom Line :
Mildly honeyed and toasted malts garnish this session APA’s citrusy hop resins for lean quenching experience.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A slice of foam tops the misty bronze.
-The wooden hop bitterness is leveled with the rest of the flavor profile’s moderate intensity.
-The mouthfeel is slender, but never thin.
-The nose could be brighter. This smells (and tastes) like a second running brew...

On tap at The Ginger Man, NYC.

JorisPPattyn (8228) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2008
Draught Small, off-white head over amber-orange ale. Hops, C-hops, but in a discreet citrussy aroma; as well as green apple ester. Very smoky taste, hopscake - even a lot. Cigarette ashes it really are. Quite a lot of taste for such a low-alcohol beer (the brewery blackboard said 3.5 percent!), but the finish is a bit watery after all, and it is discreet - maybe too discreet, but indeed a very flavourful "session"beer.

DrSilverworm (7957) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Pint on tap at Dutch’s. Very convincing, is my initial impression. Good Moderate to bigger bitter taste, minimal sweet. Mostly clear red orange color. Nice Thin off white head, with good retention. Good bits and splotches of lace. Nice piney aroma, some orange citrus, caramel biscuity malts. Lightly toasty. Medium, maybe slightly lighter body. Very satisfying, convincing session IPA.

BMan1113VR (7895) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 20, 2009
On tap at Beachwood BBQ. Pours with a small, off-white head over a orange body. Aroma of herbal hops, floral and citrus. Taste is malty, caramel, grain and herbal hops. Lively bubbles and a dry mouthfeel. Really a ton of flavor for 3.5%, all of us thought it was in the mid 4’s or low 5’s.

12 oz can. (Bruisin Ales) Asheville, NC.
Clear golden amber colour with a small off-white head. Bitterness, piney and resiny hops and malt in the aroma. The flavour is piney hops, moderate bitterness and malt. Very balanced and surprisingly rich for a 3.8% brew.

[2/20/15] Draught at Ballast Point Old Grove in San Diego. Hazy golden-orange. Aroma of nice citric and slightly tropical hops. Rather dry flavor with fruity hops. Quite light-bodied. Nice and refreshing.

Can. Pours a clear a clear amber orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma combines grass and citrus with a bit of grass and a light grain backbone. Flavor has light earthy citrus and grass throughout with a light grain backbone.
