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 at Stone on Mothers Day! Golden orange color with nice lacing. Mild hop and malt flavor. Fairly thin on your palate and flavor wise. Dry finish. Not bad beer.

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.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2008
Tap at the tasting room. Very pale straw-coloured beer. Aroma is lightly citrusy with a light orange peel flavour. A little bit of honeyish sweetness to the malts with a lingering fruity flavour on the back. Easy to knock back... a pretty solid session beer.

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.

Pours a light orange color with white head. Nice fresh hoppy aroma, with citrus and grapefruit. The flavor is citrus, bready malt, and floral hops in the finish. Balanced and drinkable.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 15, 2007
Nice, crisp, standard APA - when considering this style - it would not be my go to by any means. Pretty darn good though, but it’s nothing I crave - would be a solid summer brew

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2009
Draft at the brewery. An unclear amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of grass and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of grass, elderberries, and lots of hay, leading to a dry and very bitter finish. The body is light.
