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.

On tap. Clear deep golden with an off-white head. Fresh, peachy aroma. Light body, light caramel notes but not much of a malt base. Finishes dry with some bitterness. 070709

Served cold from tap at brewery. My girlfriend thought it was very tropical, smelled like passionfruit and tasted like mangos. It definitely had a citrus/fruit aroma to it, with some hops up front and a light finish.

MrBunn (2478) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2010
On tap at Ballast Point. Pours a light orange with a little bit of a head and aromas of soapy hops, oranges and pine. Flavor is very nice... like a light IPA... lots of flavor, enough malt to make it interesting, but not filling. Very interesting and good.

Sample at GABF 10/11/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. Pale amber color with a thin white head and spotty lacing. Aroma of citrus and hops. Light-bodied and effervescent with flavors of grassy hops, citrus and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

EithCubes (5054) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Growler from JCís, wasnít terribly impressed by the sample but wanted to give it a chance with volume, where my opinion of these lighter offerings tends to improve. Nose orange peel and citrus, very hoppy , pine. Pours hazy orange with a lacing, rocky off-white head. Taste is extremely, bone dry and strongly bitter, light wood and resin, touch of astringency. The light body makes the bitterness stand out all the more. No signs of alcohol, no signs of malt, but great repeatability for such imbalance. Crisp, refreshing session, ein gelungenes Experiment

boFNjackson (4156) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Tap... Poured copper/amber-orange with a thin, white-ish head. Cracker-like and bready malts balanced a faint hop character. Like it says, itís session ale. Very drinkabale, paired well with all sorts of food too. Hops were earth and grassy, but too floral or citrusy.

Pours clean and sharp golden amber with one finger of off white head. Lightly citrusy nose with a touch of biscuit malt. Dry and light bodied, touch too light. Biscuity/bready finish. Lightly leafy/herbal notes with some citrus zest.
