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. Pours a very clear amber color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is nicely floral with some slight pine and slight pepper elements to it; awesome! Taste is light and clean, very fresh, and not too bitter. Easy drink.

Big hop aroma. All kinds of citrus going on. Full copper color. White head settles to a thick ring. Flavor is a hop bomb with citrus and soda.

On tap at Hop Scholar. Pours a clear copper with small frothy white head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is strong citrus, grapefruit, hemp. Medium mouthfeel with nice grapefruit, resin, and light malt. Very good.

Growler shared thanks to largadeer on BA. Pours clear golden with a one-finger white head and good lacing. Aroma showcases loads of hops for the ABV. Citrusy and herbal, along with a touch of sweet malt. Flavor is solid for a session beer (in the true sense of the word) like this. Slightly sweet malt with a hop kick that is orangey and herbal, almost tea-like. Medium-light body with lots of resins attacking your palate. Overall, wow, this is an excellent a pale ale, especially at 3.5% ABV. I could session the hell out of this, and what do you know, I can even use the verb "session" and not offend the term’s tireless defenders when referring to this one.

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

mansquito (3386) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2014
New Beer Distributors, NYC can ($2): Pours light copper with a frothy white head. Aroma is grapefruit, lemon, and pine with light malt backbone. Taste is lightly bitter hops. Body is a little on the watery side. This is very light even for this characteristically light style. Refreshing and even a little sweet. It is kind of what I was looking for.

HonkeyBra (3371) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUL 10, 2014
12 oz. can. Pours an orangish amber with a big ol eggshell colored head. Aroma of pine, herbal notes, grass, and citrus hops. Flavor is herbal and pine bitterness, mild caramel sweetness. Light bodied with zippy carbonation. Finishes long and hoppy. Pretty nice.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2008 Taster at Ballast Point/Home Brew Mart. Nice light drinkable brew. Not much to say other than its a definite session beer that has some decent flavor. Great Session beer.

On tap. Color was orange/copper or dark gold. Aroma of floral, citrus and a hint of bread. Flavor was very floral and it lingers nicely. Some bread, caramel, citrus and fruit. Pretty good for the style.

tap. aroma of clean dank citrusy hops with a pleasant tropical fruit tangerine sweetness to round things out. nice balance. not too bitter, not too sweet. worked pretty well. not terribly potent aroma, but very easy to drink. good job at the session hoppy pale ale style.
