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.

DocLock (8341) - 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.

BVery (7472) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2009
TAP: clear yellow pour, minimal head. Mild wheat/grain nose, no body to speak of. Not bad, but not good either.

Ibrew2or3 (7344) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Pours clear gold with micro thin white head. The aroma is bit grainy with floral hops, a sense of esters and a touch of lemon. The taste consists of both a grainy malt and floral hop bite enhanced by carbonation. Soon after the water thin body becomes alarmingly apparent. By midway I get a sense of citrus and esters mixing with grain and floral hops as well as a note of sweet malts. Not something Iíd try again. Just too thin, watered down and lacking.

marcus (7230) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 3, 2009
This yellow/gold beer poured with a decent white head and a caramel aroma. It goes down fast and clean, but there is not much flavor.

douglas88 (6844) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 24, 2009
My first rating from the Beerhive. Not exactly the nest beer, but anyway. Pours a light golden color with a nice medium white head. The aroma was light glue-like malts, light hops. The flavor was simple and decent; lots of sweet malts, sort of glue-like. Watery and easygoing. Not bad.

blipp (6663) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAY 7, 2009
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.

drowland (6633) - 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.

I was just looking in the mirror today, and said "boy, are you fat!?!" ..thank goodness they made a light beer for the overweight beer drinker ... . Pours a standard gold with a low fizzy head ... and whats the deal with airline food ... . light corn husk in the nose .. . gambling is great, no doubt about it .. . hmmm, some flavours , light corn and other light sweet notes .. . scott fell last week and hasnít shut up about it since ... . If this was on tap at shitty BMC bars (95% of all bars) and it was a mystery $2 pint deal, this would replace butt light in a week! ... that being said, it lacks any real micro brew flavours, but it gives you what it says... a light golden ale, no frills, and not offensive .. .

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.
