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.

From a can. A slightly thin body, a touch like soda water but thats too be expected for a mid thats travelled all this way and thats being picky. Very good stuff.

Shared a can, poured to shaker. Nice appearance: clean amber-gold with medium foamy head. Citrusy nose. Mild hoppiness with a bit of a thin finish, but nothing like I expected with a sub 4 ABV. A good session beer for a hot day.

dlihcsnatas (668) - Texas, USA - NOV 6, 2016
This is the lowest ABV I have ever had. Cheap light beer has more alcohol than this. Not sure why they used 10 different malts because cant taste any of them. Hop overload with no where near enough malts to back it up. Overly bitter, very watery, not enjoyable at all. For the price it was a complete fail. Had to get it in the CAN and cant even get a buzz on it!! A cup of strong unsweetened herbal tea would be about as good as this so called beer.

mkel07 (5429) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2016
Can from Dan Muphys 031116. Possibly the best mid-strength beer that I have ever had. It has all the colour, hoppiness and flavour of a big IPA without the alcohol. This will be my go to beer this summer for sure. Floral aroma with citrus and malt in the flavour that leads to a long lasting finish.

DMs,Can BB 08/2017 clear amber orange, lively carbonation, decent sticky tan head. Quite fragrant, malty fresh bread, floral, grapefruit. Taste is the same with piney lingering bitterness all in a moderate 3.8%, nicely done.

chrisecornwall (1) - - OCT 29, 2016 does not count
Best session beer I've ever tried, full of hops. But like all session beers, feels a little weak on the palate towards the end

drjoeng (1044) - SINGAPORE - OCT 29, 2016
3.8%ABV. Session IPA. Poured out amber. 10SRM. Nose is fresh and grassy. Palate is light resin. Palate is nice full bodied malt which is solid bready. Hops are citrus and full bodied. Finishes light. Clean with a good platform To start tasting other fruit or hop flavors. Overall, Im glad I had this opportunity to try the foundational ale for Mango Even Keel, one of my most recommended session IPAs ever.

seymour (1929) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 26, 2016
Poured from 12oz can into a nucleated IPA glass, a mostly-clear amber colour with sudsy off-white foam, lasting with lace. This unassuming little brew really hit the spot with me. Exactly how I envision the perfect American session-strength IPA. Fuller body and mouthfeel than youd expect at 3.8% abv, not thin or watery at all. Grainy, malty, enough caramel sweetness to support a great big hoppy hit. Not severely bitter, but extremely flavourful and aromatic: orange and grapefruit zest, pine resin, black pepper, grass, hint of cantalope melon, green grapes, juicy apricots. Light body, strong carbonation, lingering bittersweet aftertaste. Delicious, I want more.

Very pale straw-colored beer. Aroma is lightly citrusy with a light orange peel flavor. A little bit of honeyish sweetness to the malts with a lingering fruity flavor on the back. Easy to knock back... a pretty solid session beer.
