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 (8001) - 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.

Ibrew2or3 (7046) - 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 I’d try again. Just too thin, watered down and lacking.

BVery (6826) - Burnsville, 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.

marcus (6680) - 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.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 29, 2009
Pours gold with a white head. Smells of dry malt with a stray floral note. Tastes grassy and watery with some peppery splashes on the finish.

5000 (6298) - 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.

blipp (6246) - 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.

douglas88 (6246) - 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.

after4ever (6231) - Brier, Washington, USA - SEP 15, 2009
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.
