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.

Smells like a malty pale lager, looks the same. Mostly this doesnít seem much like an ale at all to me, more like a bad pale lager. Quite a bit of malt up front, a thin finish. Thereís a slim chance Iíll buy this again.

Light golden color with a diminished off-white head. Pale malt, grain and grass in the aroma. Starts with bits of malt and honey in the flavor. Middle has some hay and grass. FInish gets drier with more grain and hay. Feels is a little prickly, but ok. A simple, boring ale.

Bottle from Binnyís beverage Depot In Orland Park, Illinois: It seems from the description ("a crisp, refreshing ale without the extra calories") that this is bland by design. Clear yellow/gold in body, itís capped by a short-lived little head. No lace. The light aroma is honeyed grainy malt, and thatís what it tastes like, too. Thereís a dash of grassy bitterness at the end that lingers a while. Okay for a lawnmower brew.

Tasted at the San Diego International Beer Festival. Clear yellow with a fizzy head. Faint malty aroma. Dry cereal grain taste.

mansquito (5474) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Tastes very unexciting. Looks like a pale lager, but basically has as little taste as possible to be offended at. Not interesting at all. Waste of space in the mix pack.

Bottle:Slim chance? Wow, thatís a setup. Light flavor and hop for low calories? Novel! Light husky malts and a crisp fairly bright hop note. Malty body, thin finish. Thereís a slim chance Iíll drink it again.

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.

Sampled on 4/21/2009. This light/blond ale pours a medium yellow gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and grassy, touch of sweetness. A light bodied blonde ale, designed as a light beer. The malts are grassy, fruity and slightly sweet. The hops are slightly spicy and grassy. The description of this beer as a light blond ale fits this beer fairly well. It has some flavors but they are so light itís hard to figure out if this beer is good or bad. Itís a hot day here so it doesnít taste all that bad. Kinda fizzy, but light and refreshing. If you want something low in alcohol that still has some flavor this might be a good choice. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is crisp and dry. Rather nice really. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

12oz Bottle Ė Top Foods Ė Olympia, WA
Aroma: Light malt and hops aroma.
Appearance: Golden in color, clear with a thin head.
Flavor: A nice lager flavor this was good for a great poker night with a decent malt and hops flavor.
Palate: Dry finish, with alight lager finish.
Overall: Not a super beer this will be for the masses as they like little flavor and a beer flavor.

Deep gold colored body with a bright white head. The aroma was meaty and beefy with bread dough. The taste is fairly light with bread dough and some sweet potato. There is also some hints of corn husk in the finish. Overall, this is decent but a little too much vegetable in the flavor.
