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.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2015 "Session" pale ale (SD session beer is what they call it). Solid aromatics, abounding in citrus. Big nose, semi sweet adequately bitter flavor. Pretty easy going.

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.

blipp (7083) - San Diego, California, 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.

b3shine (6749) - Indiana, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Draft to taster. At Dutch’s. Looks solid; a transparent light golden orange with foamy off-white head. Smells of balanced hops and sweet pale malt. Tastes like it smells, but more bitter an sweet. Fairly light on the palate. Solid beer.

Ernest (6746) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Can at World of Beer, Savannah. Head is initially small, mostly diminishing. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit), with a note of diacetyl. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately astringent. A rough, raw, overly bitter example with nothing much to offer in the nose other than the usual resin-grapefruit hop odor common to most American pale ales. Some diacetyl doesn’t help matters either. This one required a surreptitious visit to the restroom to dump it in the sink so I could move on to something else.

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.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2011 Draft at Churchill’s with Linh. Pours a clear amber body with no head, slight white lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel malts and fresh hop. Mouthfeel is nice with flavors of nice fresh pine and herbal hop.

Athens, Ga. - Five Points Bottle Shop - Atlanta Hwy. - 12 oz can. Medium copper pour, slightly hazy, soft white head. Decent floral aroma with some spruce accents. Flavor has a nice subtle bitterness to it with some muted citrus undertones, light caramel, a bit of nuttiness and just a hint of mint. Mouthfeel is full and nicely textured. Good session material.
