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.

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

12 oz bottle, drunk straight from bottle. Aroma is mild malts, grains. Flavor is grains, slight sweetness, touch of hops. A pretty refreshing beer.

FCBF 09. This was portrayed as a light beer and in that category this excels. Malty, some graham crackers, some decent taste and body for a low cal beer.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 18, 2009
2009 Bottle - First rating of this enigma brew...pours golden yellow with no head...aroma is clean, yeasty grain, light malt...flavour is pretty decent considering this is diet beer...heavy wheat grain, heavy carbonation, not much bitterness, but a residual cereal quality...not my favorite beer by any means, but as far as these diet beers go, this is the least offensive one yet...

Clear light gold, short lived wispy white head. Pale malt forward aroma, slight fruitiness. Reminds me of a cleaner Redhook Blonde. Dry wheat character, light body, finishes very clean. Hope this beer catches on, there’s a gaping void in the light category.

12 oz. single bottle from Total Wine here in Jacksonville, FL. A new offering from Red Hook? Strange. Pours a clear light gold color with a thin head. Aroma is mild with a bit of grain and maybe a touch of citrus. Taste is a bit grainy but very clean. I think this deserves a bit better than what the hopheads have given it---much better than your average light beer.

nick76 (4145) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2009
The aroma is dusty and malty with adjuncts, citrus hops, and a touch of grain husks, honey, and grass. The appearance is deep gold with a large foamy head. The flavor is like the aroma with some acidity and a bread like finish. The palate is average for the style. Overall an enjoyable beer but damaged by junk malt.

ChainGangGuy (4280) - 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. It’s 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 there’s that. But, being so light, it’s hard not to the shout 1...2...3... CHUG!! Although, I’m left wondering who in the Production Development Dept. tasted their Blonde Ale and said "not light enough!!"

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - JUN 18, 2009
Golden yellow color, well carbonated with a well diminished head. Malty, spent grain aroma. Slight hop flavor, smooth malt texture. Crisp semi-dry light body. Decent lawnmower beer, slim chance i would buy again.
