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.

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.

Light IPA with some citrus and a subtle sour and bitter finish. Pours clear orange with good head and lacing. Good balance. Tap at Churchkey.

ABR 2014. Very sessionable, just as they describe. I was not aware that the alcohol was so low. Sweet malt and citrus flavors from the hops.

Pours a light orange color with white head. Nice fresh hoppy aroma, with citrus and grapefruit. The flavor is citrus, bready malt, and floral hops in the finish. Balanced and drinkable.

I was disappointed with this one. Had a tuna fishing trip out of San Diego, but this just seemed too watered down surprisingly, even for the "style" of session IPA. I mean, it did taste like a light IPA as opposed to an American pale, but the flavor just didn’t work for me.

Tap at TJs. Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with a creamy Off white lacing head. Aroma of tea, fresh orange hops, bready malt. Hoppy and fresh. Flavor of fresh hops, pine, tea, floral notes. Bready and nutty malt profile.

Copper color with a medium head. Very strong pine and tangerine aroma. Moderate bitterness. Piney and abrassive. Dry maltiness.

cheap (4430) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2012 Had this on tap at the double wide. Clody light brown with a clean fresh somewhat sterile aroma. Quite strong in personality for a beer that is less than 4%. Flavorful hops for a light beer but it goes down rather easy. A little watery on the palate. Good amount of co2. Medium bitter linger for a finish.

Draft. Golden pour with frothy white head. Tropical fruit, grapefruit, grassy fresh hop tones. Flavor lacks any strength of hop flavor, letdown on flavor.

oof, or better yet, OLOF. This sucked. Tasted like cardboard, i know sessions are all about the nuances but this was LAME. Nothing, just wet cardboard.
