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.

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.

Pours a clear golden amber color with white head. Light pine, some citrus, grapefruit specifically, and floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light on the palate. Finishes with small amounts of hop resin. Decent session IPA.

cargo150 (874) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 2, 2015
Couleur dorée translucide avec un col blanc résistant. Aromes d’agrumes, de résines, pas trop légère pour une Session IPA. Respectable tout de meme!

Minderbinder (2152) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2015
Can 355ml. Pours amber with high frothy light-beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of citrus, flowers, malt, pine, tropical fruits. Taste is of bitterness, citrus, tropical fruits, malt, very slight earth, some acid. Palate: Light-medium body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Quite good. Tasty. I was a bit set back by the color, but this is well balanced.

Thanks to czar and tom10101 for bringing back these cans! Pours an ultra clear golden with a thin-ish white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of grassy hops, not bad at all but a little subdued. Some melon. A bit of tobacco leaves. Taste is of same melon with some really subtle caramel. Dry, of course. Tasty for such a small beer but I’ve had tastier session IPAs. Body is light and carbonation high. Sessionnable for sure! Overall a good one, easy drinking enough.

3.8% 605 yen can from Tsutaya Saketen drunk at the airport. It pours a deep gold with a thick fluffy off white head. The nose is a great hoppy pine. Medium bodied with a smooth chewy mouthfeel. The taste is green piney hops though this has been in my bag all day so I doubt I am at the correct serving temperature. For those who like piney hop notes this is the perfect session IPA, myself I prefer fruity hops. Still a damn good session IPA with a satisfying body and good flavor not an easy trick for low ABV beers.

Can (12 oz) bought @ Winooski Beverage Warehouse.

Appearance: Clear amber/golden with a small off-white head and little lacing.

Aroma: A burst of oily hops at first, but it dissipates really quickly to leave the place to toasted malts, light resin and mineral notes.

Taste: Mild. Toasted malts, light caramel, light resin, mineral notes and light to moderate bitterness.

Palate: Light body. Medium carbonation. Thin mouthfeel, almost watery. Somewhat dry finish. Mild mineral finish.

Overall: There’s some very low abv beers that you can’t tell they are low abv... that’s not the case with this one. It’s super easy to drink, but it lacks of body to support the hops and the mouthfeel is too thin.
