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.

Orange with a white head. Citrus, sweet malt, floral notes. Smooth and easy going. Solid brew but not sure if I'd go back. Something about it puts me off.

Draft at San Diego Brewing Company. Golden yellow pour with a decent head. Aromas were very fruity, citrus, peach, some pineapple. Flavors were nice too. A bit more malt than in the nose, and the hops were a touch more bitter than fruity. Not Too Shabby

On draft at O’Briens. This APA -advertised at 4.5% abv - arrived a clear medium amber color with a small white head. The aroma is dominated by hops, lots of grapefruit and other citrus in the nose along with light sweet malts and oddly enough, a whiff of bubblegum. The taste doesn’t disappoint, with lots of bold hoppy flavors, more citrus along with floral notes and fresh fruity malts. Light body and gently crisp carbonation. This was much more flavorful and bold than I expected - definitely would be a great session ale. Another nice one from Ballast Point!

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - AUG 31, 2008
Draft at the brewery. Pours a dark gold color, with a small off white head. Smells of citric hops and light malts combined. The hop character was pretty profoundi nthe flavor which was nice. Got some good grapefruit citrus mixed in as well to give it some depth. Very simple and easy drinking pale ale. Little hop bitterness in the clean finish. Pretty decent.

On cask at PP Real Ale Festival. 3.5%. I haven’t tried a beer that low in a while. Nice to do at an event with many other strong beers. Nice mildly hoppy aroma. Easy to drink. Blandish.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Appearance: Pours a yellow gold with an amber tint. The body is clear, and atop sits a modest layer of foamy suds. Once the head subsides, it grips onto the glass and leaves its markings all the way down.

Aroma: Lemon, tangerine, grass.

Taste: Dry malt, gigantic citrus hops. Lots of grapefruit and orange.

Mouthfeel: Thin with very active carbonation.

Overall: Beautiful and spot on. Up there with my favs from Firestone Walker and the Collaboration they did earlier this year.

Sample at Ballast Point. Really a solid beer. Tons of hop aroma and flavor, pours a beautiful clear orange and I could drink a lot. Really nice and flavorful, balanced and just overall good.
