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.

[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.

BMan1113VR (7904) - 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 4s or low 5s.

KyotoLefty (7855) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 25, 2015
Cab at Komachi. Doughy, biscuity nose, some stinky tropical fruit, and citrus. Slightly sweet, light but not thin, peppery finish. A bit of strange doughiness. Light and not outstanding but very impressive for only 3.8%.

olio (7840) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2015
Tap @ The Blind Burro, San Diego.
Pours clear copper color with a small head. Nice hoppy aroma with caramel and oranges, some floral notes too. Malty flavor, some oranges, resinous hops and faint grassy notes. A bit disappointing.

phaleslu (7600) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2015
12 oz. can from Root Cellar. Pours a clear somewhat burnt tea-like orange color with a couple fingers of off-white head. Notes of pine, grass, tea, tangerine, lemon, biscuit, caramel, orange zest. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, thin, refreshing mouthfeel. Nothing blasts here, in that west coast IPA kind of way. It lives up to its way in the most satisfying manner.

laiti (7525) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2015
Draught @ The Blind Burro, San Diego. Aroma has tropical fruits and resiny malt. Flavour has resiny malt, grapefruit, tropical fruits and some odd plastic off-flavour. Quite pleasant for this ABV.

lusikka (7378) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2015
Draught @ the Blind Burro, San Diego, CA. Pours a hazy golden amber colour with a large foamy head. Aroma of floral hops, citrus and some biscuit. Flavour of crisp citrusy bitterness, quite strong biscuit maltiness, pine and mild sweetness. Light bodied. Refreshing, but maybe a bit too malty.
