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.

blipp (8178) - La Mesa, 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 (8108) - 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.

BMan1113VR (7917) - 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.

czar (7723) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2015
pours unclear bright golden orange with a nice creamy off-white head, good retention and lacing. peppery mangoes, candied grapefruit, danky melons, very candy-esque - melon bubblegum, limes, lean toasted graininess - matliness - spicy cereals too, prickly to average carbonation, light body - watery, balanced spicy-citrusy finish. very fruity session ipa that lacks in body. tasty and fun though. good drinkability.

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.
