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.

355ml Can from BottleDog (Glasgow, £2.80):
Fresh & hoppy with lots of flavour despite the low abv. Good bitterness with nice citrus & pine hops. Definitely one of the better session IPA’s & very easy to drink, maybe not quite as good as Stone’s Go To IPA or Founder’s All Day IPA but it runs them very close & is a nice beer that I wouldn’t mind getting again.

superspak (4483) - Michigan, USA - FEB 25, 2016
12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 11/19/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, honey, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus rind/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, pine, honey, toasted bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and light-moderate bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness and lighter body that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp/sticky/resinous, and lightly creamy/grainy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 3.8%. Overall this is a very nice Session IPA style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and light-moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Vignale (3210) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2016
Burk beställningssortimentet SB. Bärnstensfärgad, klar, lågt vitt skum. Fin fruktig doft med tropisk frukt och citrus. Rejäl kropp för stilen och om inte humlen också var så bra hade jag skrivit maltfokuserad för kroppen är rejäl, mjuk och med fina smaknyander utan att bli för söt och til det fruktig humle medväl avvägd beska. En av de bästa Session-IPor jag druckit.

HuskerTan (1566) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JUL 20, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2016 Can. A- Subtle pine, caramel malt, mango, citrus, stone fruits. A- Amber color, clear liquid, off white head. T- Subtle bitterness, citrus, tropical fruits. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- This is light! About as session as it gets. Very balanced between the bitterness, malt, and notes of citrus. There was nothing that stood out and made me say wow, other than wow, this is solid and I could drink a ton.

mesperon (205) - Hillsdale, New Jersey, USA - JUL 18, 2009
Clear copper with small bubbly head. Nice aroma of light roast and spicy hops. Very spicy bite, caramal and slightly bready malt base with very spicy, piney, slightly resiny hop bite, long mild bitter finish. Very pleasant surprise for a beer labeled "session ale," i was expecting bland and boring.

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!

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2011
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.
