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.

beerguy101 (5294) - Newark, California, USA - APR 21, 2009
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.

heemer77 (5109) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 4, 2009
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.

BrewDad (5040) - Olympia, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2009
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.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, 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.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 14, 2009
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.

dwyerpg (4653) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 28, 2009
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.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
ChainGangGuy (4422) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 3, 2009
Appearance: Quite clear, deep yellow body with a smallish, fine, but sustaining, white head. Smell: Mildly sweetish, meager malts with a lightly earthy, vaguely floral hop scent. Itís not exactly a stand out aroma. Taste: Light pale maltiness with an infinitesimally small amount of wheat grain. Subtly sweet overall. Earthy, lightly floral hop character with just enough hop bitterness to balance. Ill-defined maltiness in the later half with an encroaching wateriness. Finishes dry, clean, but a little on the weak side. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A light ale, indeed! Thankfully, no off flavors, and, it has kindly low ABV%, so thereís that. But, being so light, itís hard not to the shout 1...2...3... CHUG!! Although, Iím left wondering who in the Production Development Dept. tasted their Blonde Ale and said "not light enough!!"

Aurelius (4379) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2009
Pleasant, sweet, lightly honey-fruity aroma. Bright, clear, specimen gold with a very fne-grained lacy head. Ho-hum label, bottle, packaging. Crisp, dry. Light tonic bitterness and acidity. Aftertaste had some issues, and it hung a little too long on the sides of the back of the tongue. Medium light body. Bunt single, hot weather beer.

hotstuff (4284) - 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.
