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.

PorterPounder (7417) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 16, 2009
Tallahassee, Fl. - Publix Supermarkets - 12 oz bottle.Pours a slightly murky medium golden with a bit of a glint and a slight white head. Sweet aroma with hints of distant fruit and some buttery notes. Refreshing flavor with some of the same buttery notes, muted citrus, and just a hint of cereal. Crisp mouthfeel. Not a bad summer refresher.

TheAlum (6991) - 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.

5000 (6862) - 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.

thedm (5794) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 4, 2010
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a and a fair lacing. The aroma was orange peel and lagerish. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.
