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.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2009
12 ounce bottle from a sampler. Pours a slightly hazy gold color with a thin head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of nutty malt notes as well as caramel and peaches. Taste is pale malts, nuts, bread, bitter and leafy hop finish. Medium bodied. Decent beer.

Finhead (1147) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2009
A nearly clear yellow pour with very little white head that dissipates fast. It has a faint wheat aroma with a hint of lemon. It has a thin watery mouthfeel and a slight lemon taste.

scooterbub (813) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - NOV 30, 2009
Bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a decent white head that slowly fades. Taste is of malt, grain, corn, citrus and grass. Slightly sweet. Similar aroma. Very easy to drink and rather enjoyable. A good beer to have on a hot day.

Bouteille de 12 oz achetée chez Shaw’s (Ellsworth, ME). Arôme: Légère odeur d’houblons avec une pointe de citron. Apparence: La couleur est blonde-dorée avec une très faible densité de bulle.

Arrière goût légèrement fruité. (Rating #2778)

I give Redhook props for trying to cut into BMC’s mass stranglehold on the american beer market. Little did we know that they would take their discontinued Blonde ale, lighten it a bit, trim some calories, and package it in a smaller bottle. It’s light with a thin mouthfeel, kinda like one of those "diet desserts" that feels like the empty and hollow shell of a real one.

daknole (8863) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 9, 2009
Funny name? Nope, true name. Slim chance I would drink another one of these. Yellow pour. Aroma is grainy and a little hoppy with some lemony scents. Flavor is grainy, light citrus hops. Boring.

Jblauvs (1339) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Yellow pour, slight corny aroma with a bit of toastiness. Flavor follows this, malting is a bit hollow and not very satisfying, but extremely light and sessionable. If you want to pound beers but don’t want to buy coors you can buy this and be happy I suppose

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Bottle:Slim chance? Wow, that’s a setup. Light flavor and hop for low calories? Novel! Light husky malts and a crisp fairly bright hop note. Malty body, thin finish. There’s a slim chance I’ll drink it again.

12oz bottle. Rasting #94. Pale yellow with a fairly thin white head. Big grainy aroma. Just a hint of sweetness. Very little to the flavor, slight (very slight) bitterness in the finish, but not much else. ꀜ)
