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.

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.

Can - golden pour with white foamy head. Nose of light citrus. Taste of light citrus and medium hop bitterness. Good for what it is but I wish it had a stronger fruit sweetness presence. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Tap @ Local. Pours clear gold with a bubbly white head. Crisp hops and grass in the aroma, with white grapes. Straw and hops in the front that turns nicely into lemon and resin with drier malt/bread flavors. Very light, shocked to see it was classed as an APA.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - FEB 14, 2009
Tap at the Old Grove brewery. Light gold pour with a nice white head. Clean crisp flavor, light on the palate. Not alot of aroma, but this would be really good session beer if available on a regular basis.
