COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Slim Chance ale combines the best attributes of a crisp, refreshing ale without the extra calories. Golden kilned malt and a touch of wheat create this smooth, satisfying ale that is not your typical light beer.

Deep gold colored body with a bright white head. The aroma was meaty and beefy with bread dough. The taste is fairly light with bread dough and some sweet potato. There is also some hints of corn husk in the finish. Overall, this is decent but a little too much vegetable in the flavor.

This would rate slightly better in the "light lager" category. Clear amber with one finger of white rapidly receding head. No lacings that stay. Sweet malts with a soapy somewhat bready character. Slight bitter almost sour finish. Mouthfeel is alright cold. I would almost prefer a Silver Bullet if I have to go light. Even better a S.A. light lager.

Smells like a malty pale lager, looks the same. Mostly this doesnít seem much like an ale at all to me, more like a bad pale lager. Quite a bit of malt up front, a thin finish. Thereís a slim chance Iíll buy this again.

12 oz bottle. Pours a pale yellow with a 1/4" white head. Aroma is corn, grains and some malt. Palate is thin and watery. Flavor is mild malt with some fruit characteristics. Pretty bland. Came as part of a brewers choice 12 pack I bought. Itís a slim chance Iíll drink another.

CanIHave4Beers (3142) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - APR 22, 2009
From the backlog, this was being given away at El Bait Shop a little while back, so free rate whoot whoot! This pours a clear golden color with a small head and a little lace. The aroma is citrusy and doughy. The flavor is very light, citrusy, and mildly spicy. The flavor altogether is wholly inoffensive but very faint; this is a very light ale.

Yellow pour with small white head. Fruity notes in the aroma, slight sweetness. Medium carbonation and metallic mouthfeel in taste. Mediocre at best.

Sampled on 4/21/2009. This light/blond ale pours a medium yellow gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and grassy, touch of sweetness. A light bodied blonde ale, designed as a light beer. The malts are grassy, fruity and slightly sweet. The hops are slightly spicy and grassy. The description of this beer as a light blond ale fits this beer fairly well. It has some flavors but they are so light itís hard to figure out if this beer is good or bad. Itís a hot day here so it doesnít taste all that bad. Kinda fizzy, but light and refreshing. If you want something low in alcohol that still has some flavor this might be a good choice. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is crisp and dry. Rather nice really. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with some dry grass. Flavor begins with a sweet bubblegum flavor then quickly turns bitter and dry with hints of stale hops, grass, hay, and dry malts. Watery and dry.
