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.

Bottle from Bottl3.5hop in Stockholm. Hoppy smell with citrus, pine and some grapefruit. Similar hoppy aroma in the taste but also a malty caramel backbone. Medium bitterness. Nice for a low ABV beer.

riversideAK (6215) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2007
This was a damn good session ale. Very hoppy both in nose and flavor. Some sweet bready malt, but very mild. Body is very light, but still pretty dry and resiny. The beer was copper in color.

Can from Bearden Beer Market. Orange, with a lot of white foam. Smells grassy, very green, and a good deal of citrus. Taste is grassy and citrusy hops, hint of caramel, and more hops in the finish. I liked it...

ClarkVV (6066) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 8, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2016 Draught at Brava, 7/5/15
Medium-copper with lighter blonde tints and a large, well-retained white head.
Plenty of citrus and light tropical fruitiness in the nose is clean, as allows from these guys and leads to light traces of biscuits and dry caramel. Big notes of grapefruit, softer meyer lemon-like juiciness and touches of pine and mango round it out. No alcohol, obviously and quite clean and bright (and low on resin).
The flavor is amazingly full, robust and deliciously hoppy without being overdone. Not something one can just chug too easily, as there is a good deal of bitterness. Quite impressive theyve got this much flavor and body in to a beer of this size. I was generally treating this as a sipper, not because it was too bitter/resinous or anything, but because each mouthful was quite enjoyable and the flavor lingered nicely. May actually buy a six pack of this soon.

12 oz. can. It pours a deep golden color with a foamy off white head. The aroma is very floral, leafy and citrusy with mild hints of caramel in the background but very hop forward. The flavor has more leafy, herbal, floral hop notes with some grapefruit and lightly toasted caramel. The bitterness is a little strong in the finish, and it has a little more caramel than I would like, but the hop character is up front and center. The strong bitterness gives keeps it dry in the finish as well. Overall, pretty nice, but I wouldve liked less specialty malt and less bitterness.
