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 at beer run. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Big grapefruit on the nose and tongue. Finished clean. Just a lovely and flavorful beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Being very familiar with this brew, I was surprised to see I had not reviewed it. Can to teku; deep, clear reddish-amber with a supremely pleasing head. Oozing hop aromas before I even put my nose near it. Right off the bat, a prickly pepper nose rich with ripe fruit, toasted malt, savory/umami, foliage. Taste is toasty spice/wood, little layer of citrus juice, a malty, pale floral linger. Easy body, unmistakeable flavors, rich and vibrant balance of malt and hops. Finishes easy, goes down delightfully. This one is definitely tops in the session category, among a small handful of others.

From the can. Beautiful heady copper-amber pour with great clarity. Big grassy and pine aroma and a more subtle toasted bread and caramel note. The body is light to medium. The cereal, bread, and caramel malts are there in the taste and the dry hop bitterness rises up at the end and lingers. A good session beer for hop heads.

335 ml can from Systembolaget beställningssortiment. Hazy orange with white head. Wonderful pine, zest, floral, citrus, tropical fruit and light caramel. Dry with medium bitterness and medium carbonation. After drinking this I finally understand the true meaning of this beer style!

Light amber colour. Fresh, floral aroma evokes tropical fruits. Not bad body for a low alcohol beer. Lots of bitterness and tropical fruit flavour. I like the concept of the San Diego Session, and this one is done very well.

On-tap at the Carroll Canyon brewery. Pours golden orange with a moderate white head, touch of lace. Smells crisp and floral hoppy, very nice, with some malt as well. Pretty damn tasty for 3.5%abv. Light, floral hops, good malt backbone. Thin light body, crisp carbonation. Awesome beer.

On cask at the PP Real Ale Fest. Pours a mostly transparent, honey gold color with a thick head of sudsy white. Clean, refreshing hop aromas of citrusy lemon blossoms and a hint of caramel malt. Simple, but extremely clean with a really fresh hop aroma. Light bodied, creamy mouthfeel with a soft, cask-typical carbonation level. Bready malt flavors with a hint of caramel up front on the palate, followed by a wave of fresh, floral, lemon blossom hops. Wonderfully refreshing and clean for a low ABV beer; completely devoid of the cereal-like grainy malts, astringency, or naked yeast byproducts that often pollute beers in this weight class. Quaffable, and flavorwise, enjoyable enough on cask for me to seek out several pulls. This was the highlight of the RA festival offerings for me.

Draft from the brewery. Tons of hops. Citrusy and fruity. I love this trend towards really hoppy, low gravity brews.
