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.

DrSilverworm (6273) - 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.

after4ever (6103) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Draft at sb. Pours a crystal cear medium amber with a loose whitish head. Big sweet tangy nose, showing pineapple and grapefruit. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, pineapple, and grapefruit mid palate. Beautiful light body and very clean. Nice light finish.

blipp (5973) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Draft. Gold with a white head. Light flowery and citric hops on a grainy and lightly sweet malty base. Could use a few more aromatic hops, but damn this is awesome for how low in alcohol it is. I love that brewers are starting to make beers like this more regularly.

Clear light amber color with white foam. Subtle pine, floral aromas. Light bodied. Grainy pale malt flavors with a massive bitter finish, no hop flavors--weak

swoopjones (5726) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2013

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2007
This was a damn good session ale. Very hoppy both in nose and flavor. Some sweet bready malt, but very mild. Body is very light, but still pretty dry and resiny. The beer was copper in color.

badlizard (5539) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUN 6, 2007
Tasted at Ballast Point. Light orange color with a fizzy white head. Bright palate. Good hoppy taste and a slightly bitter, crisp, dry finish.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 13, 2006
Cask at O’Brien’s: Golden color with a light white foamy head. The nose is pronounced with that typical fresh ask hoppy note. The flavor is a bit on the dry side but has a nice chewy malt backbone to back up all the hops. The finish is tangy and lightly sweet with some honey flavors. A balanced APA that just loves being on cask.

Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a hazy golden color with a large fluffy off white head. The aroma and flavor have some toasted bready malts, grass, herbal hops, mild plus bitterness, a bit watery, but decent overall flavor for the abv.
