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.

Rustyham (1722) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Big nutty flavor, smooth and crisp. Surprisingly good for a light beer. On tap at Yardhouse in Coral Gables, Miami. I believe it was listed as a light lager.

12-oz. Pours a crystal clear medium gold with a little smear of grayish film on top. Modest stringy lacing, looks flat otherwise. Toasty, corn-nutty, slightly sweaty nose. Watery, flattish body. Toast, corn nuts, and sweat on the mid-palate. Mild corny finish.

DocLock (7828) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2009
Pale gold pour, with nose of hopcitrus and pale malt. Tastes pale malty, grainy, with hops, citrus, slight spice, and a watery palate. Not much going on here.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 14, 2009
Light golden color with a diminished off-white head. Pale malt, grain and grass in the aroma. Starts with bits of malt and honey in the flavor. Middle has some hay and grass. FInish gets drier with more grain and hay. Feels is a little prickly, but ok. A simple, boring ale.

TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2009
12 oz bottle courtesy of the Binnys Singles Rack (Orland Park, IL). Pours a nearly clear golden hue, light, well carbonated, small white bubbly head that dies to a film eventually, light lacing. Aromas are some citrusy lemon, adjuncty malts are a bit harsh and corny, faint pale, lemon juice, cereal malts. Initial is light bodied enough, with a big watery lemonade feel, faint cereal and corny malts, with a mellow sweetness but a funny watery lemonade tart note. Finish dies out hard, strangely, with little remaining on the palate at all which is surprising given the lemony citrus that you’d think might stick around. Largely water, with light lemon juice and weak malt. Perhaps I’m being hard on this, but this beer is simply a macro made up to convince you it isn’t.. which loses even more points with me.

thegreenrooster (3194) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Pour is a bright golden with a small fizzy white head. Aroma is light malts and corn. Flavor is more pale malts and very little if any hop presence. Probably more body then a macro lite but its ok to have for sunday sipping with the low abv.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear gold with a lacy white head. Seems to be a little corny on the aroma, along with some grass and toffee. Light body, medium carbonation. Lightly sweet taste of cereal, almonds with a crisp and lightly wheat-sour finish. All in all, not so bad.

mjg74 (2491) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 27, 2009
Bottled. Light golden in color. Sour grainy aromas. A little fruity smelling. Watery. A hint of malts and a hop or two. Very bland and boring.

trayns (246) - Beverly Hills, Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2009
Bottle. Light alcohol and light on taste. There is not much to this brew. Very watery, and flat tasting. There is no malt body and slight hop flavor. OVerall, not too much better than macro light brews.
