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.

kidmartinek (3674) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Good tame pour considering its a light lager. Light golden color with a 1/2 inch white head lasting less than a minutes. The aroma has crisp, light hops, and a pure mineral water smell. It tastes pretty refreshing and quite malty and almost like an ale yeast. This could be an ale, I don’t know. Anyway, the flavor is much more full bodied than you’d expect for a light beer. Palate is brisk and refreshing, and agreeable.

BrewDad (5003) - Olympia, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2009
12oz Bottle – Top Foods – 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.

Pours light gold with white head. Smell is actually nice and pleasant, yet mild. Floral, fruity notes along with some lightly honey like malt. Taste is definitely wheaty, slightly sweet and with some light, sweet corn as well. Kind of corn pops light, like. Slightly sweet and long finish for a light beer with some floral flavors lingering as well. Light bodied and crisp carbonation. I enjoyed this one for what it was.

12 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a crystal clear golden color with a one and a half finger thick white head. Light lacing. Aroma is light toasted malt with a hint of esters and hops. Flavor is light malt and a touch of hops. Medium body. Nothing fancy, just an easy drinking light beer. Worth a try.

asedzie (607) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 31, 2010
Bottle. Pours a rich golden with a small white head. Aroma is earthy hops, light citrus. Flavor has quite a full malt character for such a low gravity. Nice lightly bitter citrus/herbal hop burst near the finish and lingering.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - FEB 26, 2009
2/26/09 From the bottle. Aroma is very light, bready, with no real sweetness or sourness. Appearance is clear yellow with almost no head. Flavor is clear bready with light sourness, a little bit of sweetness and citrus bittering. Mouthfeel is medium-low bodied with a low, slightly acidic tang. Overall, not as rich as the Redhook blonde, but quite similar to other blondes on the market.
