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.

Draft @ The Pony Bar :: Not a fan of this one. Little to no aroma, tasted like the bottom of the keg. Very flat in the glass as well. One and done

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Rated on 12-06-2009 (Bottle) This beer forms a small smooth fizzy white head that mostly diminishes, transparent/slightly hazy pale yellow body, visible carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The Aroma is malty, sweet and lightly fruity. The Taste is sweet, refreshing, lightly malty, lightly fruity, and crisp. The Palate is tingly and this beer is light-medium body. Overall, this beer is easy to drink and a beer that could be considered a lawnmower beer.

burg326 (3576) - Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Poured a golden color, aromas of malt, grain, hay, and grass, little citrus to it. Flavors are the same, ok beer overall, not my first choice from RedHook though.

On draft. Golden light with a white head. Not much of a taste. A little grain. Slim chance I’ll have another.

MadIndian (2350) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Bottle. I think I got this from Dleral Canal’s. Golden pour thin appearence. Aromas of mild hop and grain. A bit of a watery taste. It was ok.

beerbill (3333) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 15, 2011
12 oz. bottle. Pours a very hazy pale gold with virtually no head except for a scummy looking incomplete film. Very weak aroma of watered down malt and perhaps a wisp of grass. The flavor is equally weak with mild bitterness at the finish. Thin, watery body. Not something I would look to revisit.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle:   So I held onto this one for a while.   Having said that, its fiery golden, moderate to large frothy white head, spotty lacing, with fairly strong carbonation.   Somewhat of a musty hay/straw/grass aroma, with minor wheat, a little stale wheat.   Pretty much stale maltiness up front, the aroma of grass/hay/straw translates but not as defined.   Feels a bit stale.   Likely age I am guessing.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Finish is clean, not a lot there, guessing thats how this one was intended.   Perhaps appealing to light beer drinkers?   One that I will stear away from given other options, albeit its not disgusting like so many others.

Decent low calorie beer. Crisp and clean. Has a citrus taste to it...

Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2010
Draft. A golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and straw. The falvor is sweet with notes of malt and lighter notes of straw, leading to a lightly bitter finish. The body is light. Boring.

jimhilt (2391) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 16, 2010
Pours a two finger white head that fades slowly to a ring leaving a good lace. Almost clear light amber color. Light-medium carbonation and light bodied. Light hoppy nose. Flavor is light citric with some hops. Slim chance this will ever be in the house again. There are better lights - like Sam Adams. $2.00 for a 12oz bottle from Barb’s Beer Emporium Concord, NH.

asedzie (590) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 31, 2010
Bottle. Pours a rich golden with a small white head. Aroma is earthy hops, light citrus. Flavor has quite a full malt character for such a low gravity. Nice lightly bitter citrus/herbal hop burst near the finish and lingering.
