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.

Bottle: What can you say it a light beer; refreshing, thirst quenching, taste less. Food Pairing: Spicy Foods.

Draught. Slim Chance... sounded clever. The SCAW Pale Ale didnít taste quite right at El Palomar, so I thought I would take a chance on this stuff. Iíve been getting into session beers lately, but this... The color is nice; clear gold with a medium, lasting white head with some tight lace. The aroma is basically just light mineral water and carbon dioxide. Itís never a good thing when the strongest aroma the bubbles are bringing out of the beer it fro themselves. The flavor is very faint mineral water and a limp cornflakes finish that it neither sweet nor bitter. Watery, but I wonít dock it too much for that because itís under 4%. Overall, kinda misses out on tasting like a beer. I know that they were going for lightness, but hops donít have any calories do they? This just needed something in it to avoid tasting like water.

FCBF 09. Bottle. Pours clear gold with a white head. Sweet grainy malt aroma, rather light. Light flavor as well hints of grainy and sweet malts. No off flavors. A decent, easy drinking session ale.

jb (2162) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2009
FCBF 09. This was portrayed as a light beer and in that category this excels. Malty, some graham crackers, some decent taste and body for a low cal beer.

bubbleflubber (1816) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Pours clear golden into the glass with an initial head that diminishes to nothing, and sparse suds lace. The nose is of sweet corn and light malt. The flavors, very light, are of sour grains, hints at corn, and some biscuit malt. There is a grassy finish, with some residual biscuit dry-hopping. Unfortunately, all of these are underdone, as the mouthfeel is too seltzery and the body too thin. Itís ok to be a low-cal offering, but itís only as good as what it is.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy light gold with a one finger white head with not much lacing to speak. The nose is grain, malt and light floral hops. The taste is biscuits, grain, sweet grass and very faint hops in the finish. Lighter, slightly prickly mouthfeel. Not that good. Slim Chance Iíll be buying it again. Ba da bum!

rugbydude05 (478) - Bridgewater, NJ, New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2009
Pint x2 on tap at a local bar. Pours a clear light golden color with little head. Aroma is very sweet, kind of sweet and hoppy. Flavor is kind of bitter with a little malty sweetness, but very subtle. Palate is kind of rough but not too unmanageable. Pair this beer up with a flavorful food for full effect. Nice summer bew.

drowland (5989) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Drank straight from the bottle for lack of a glass... Not bad, doesnít taste too adjuncty, but itís still a light beer. Aroma reminds of mild soapy water and the flavor is light with a hint of grain and biscuit.
