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.

Wasn’t expecting much, but this really wasn’t bad. Few ingredients, not much flavor, but very drinkable. Moderate carbonation and crisp finish are positives for this beer. Slightly better than the average pale lager out there. No aroma

Bottle. Pours clear gold with a white head. Sweet grainy malt aroma, rather light. Light flavor as well hints of grainy and sweet malts. No off flavors. A decent, easy drinking session ale.

rugbydude05 (478) - Bridgewater, NJ, New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2009
Pint x2 on tap at a local bar. Pours a clear light golden color with little head. Aroma is very sweet, kind of sweet and hoppy. Flavor is kind of bitter with a little malty sweetness, but very subtle. Palate is kind of rough but not too unmanageable. Pair this beer up with a flavorful food for full effect. Nice summer bew.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear gold with a lacy white head. Seems to be a little corny on the aroma, along with some grass and toffee. Light body, medium carbonation. Lightly sweet taste of cereal, almonds with a crisp and lightly wheat-sour finish. All in all, not so bad.

Light tinge of amber. Plentiful carbonation feeds a nice, but deflated, head. Nice grainy malt nose and some tannic hop notes. Pleasant graininess through the body and easy malting. Well-balanced, pleasant, beach-side golden ale.

Yellow pour with small white head. Fruity notes in the aroma, slight sweetness. Medium carbonation and metallic mouthfeel in taste. Mediocre at best.

I was just looking in the mirror today, and said "boy, are you fat!?!" ..thank goodness they made a light beer for the overweight beer drinker ... . Pours a standard gold with a low fizzy head ... and whats the deal with airline food ... . light corn husk in the nose .. . gambling is great, no doubt about it .. . hmmm, some flavours , light corn and other light sweet notes .. . scott fell last week and hasn’t shut up about it since ... . If this was on tap at shitty BMC bars (95% of all bars) and it was a mystery $2 pint deal, this would replace butt light in a week! ... that being said, it lacks any real micro brew flavours, but it gives you what it says... a light golden ale, no frills, and not offensive .. .

12oz bottle. Clear golden color, white fizzy head. Aroma of corn, hay, and old boards. Light flavor of straw and a nice floral hop follow up. Light bodied, medium flavor. It’s alright, not anything good.

Draft. Pours a clear golden yellow color with a foamy white head. Nice fruity, floral, hop aroma. Flavor is light and refreshing with a fruity aftertaste. Not bad for a light beer. With its pleasant, but very mild flavor I could see this as a nice transition beer for people trying to branch out from the flavorless macros they may be used to.

my latest sub 5%. bummer that this is well done bad beer. tastes like a perfected bud light clone with similar hopping and residual light malted sweetness. it is a typical light beer. some dry hopping and .2% or more less abv and you have a real ultralight.
