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.

A draft pint at Capone’s Fresh Hop Fest. Had to try this after seeing the good ratings on Ratebeer, and I have to concur. A 3.5% beer is not one I’d be inclined to order, but this one is different. The lack of malt body in the beer is compensated for by the hops which result in a beer that is as tasty as many 6.5% IPAs around. Leave it an excellent San Diego brewer to produce the first low alcohol beer I’d ever want to buy a six-pack of!

Caramel orange, off white cover. The aroma is toast, perfume, citrus hops. The taste is largely the same, very floral and perfumey, light bodied but expected at the ABV level. This beer is fantastic and would make an amazing session if it weren’t for the $5.50 price for the pint.

Draft. Gold with a white head. Light flowery and citric hops on a grainy and lightly sweet malty base. Could use a few more aromatic hops, but damn this is awesome for how low in alcohol it is. I love that brewers are starting to make beers like this more regularly.

My kind of APA-great hoppy flavor. Well balanced, great session brew, does have a lot of personality for a beer that is only 3.8%. Interesting, some complexity as well.

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.

On tap at capitol beer and tap room. Taste is big in the Malts with a slight hop balance. Nice easy drinking beer.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 13, 2006
Cask at O’Brien’s: Golden color with a light white foamy head. The nose is pronounced with that typical fresh ask hoppy note. The flavor is a bit on the dry side but has a nice chewy malt backbone to back up all the hops. The finish is tangy and lightly sweet with some honey flavors. A balanced APA that just loves being on cask.

From tap at the brewery. Pours clear and golden orage with a lacing white head. Dense hoppy and smooth aroma. Peachy and light grapefruity hops flavour. Smooth and crisp hoppy for flavour. Mild caramel malt base presence. Light crisp and flavourful finish. Lovely.

RBSG08 tap. Amber pour with nice dim. head. Fruit, hop, citrus. There is an "airy" dryness to it which is very light and easy to drink with nice flavors.
