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.

tom10101 (5543) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
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: Theres some very low abv beers that you cant tell they are low abv... thats not the case with this one. Its super easy to drink, but it lacks of body to support the hops and the mouthfeel is too thin.

Tasted at Ballast Point. Light orange color with a fizzy white head. Bright palate. Good hoppy taste and a slightly bitter, crisp, dry finish.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 13, 2006
Cask at OBriens: 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.

Pours a light orange color with white head. Nice fresh hoppy aroma, with citrus and grapefruit. The flavor is citrus, bready malt, and floral hops in the finish. Balanced and drinkable.

cheap (5417) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2012 Had this on tap at the double wide. Clody light brown with a clean fresh somewhat sterile aroma. Quite strong in personality for a beer that is less than 4%. Flavorful hops for a light beer but it goes down rather easy. A little watery on the palate. Good amount of co2. Medium bitter linger for a finish.

beerguy101 (5359) - Newark, California, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Tasted on tap at brewery during the RBSG 2008. This pale ale pours a medium amber color from the tap. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is grapefruity and floral. A medium to lighter bodied Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and citrusy. A touch of peach as well. Light and refreshing. Good flavors, at 3.5% alcohol this would be a great session ale. I could see drinking this on the porch on a warm summer afternoon. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

jkwood04 (5322) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 7, 2015
12oz can in a tulip. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral and earthy hops, some pale and light caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same with some bitterness at the end. Average texture. A pretty good session IPA, but not the best beer ever.

mkel07 (5312) - 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.
