We practice alchemy every day turning water, malt, hops and yeast into liquid gold. Alchemy Ale melds years of experimentation and our special Alchemy hop blend, in a pure expression of brewing art and science. Join us in unlocking the mystery to the perfectly balanced, perfectly hopped ale. Alchemy Ale has a bright, distinct hop character balanced with hints of caramel and a remarkably smooth finish.

Proprietary Hop Blend: Alchemy hops are a blend of choice hops from the Pacific Northwest, hand-selected by our brewers each year. This secret blend is the backbone of all our beers, and the magic behind Alchemy Ale.

Malts: Pale, Caramel, Munich, Vienna Extra Special Original Gravity: 13.8 Plato

Keg at Bishops Arms Hamngatan, Gothenburg. Hazy pale golden, small head. Clumsy cardboard nose. Sweet, medium bodied, sticky mouthfeel. Fairly low bitterness. Useless junk.

Widmer bros gargle my nuts. I hope they go bankrupt. Once again a semi-giant in "the business" is throwing their "gravity" around for NO GOOD REASON!!!!!!! GLBC KICKS ASSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!

This is a good, inoffensive pale ale. There is a hint of caramel in the aroma. It’s got a smooth finish, with a mildly bitter aftertaste. It has a grainy taste.

944play (380) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Draft at Sprenger’s. Bright deep gold, smallish white head. Pleasant sweet tea scent at a very low level. Flavor starts promisingly, bringing coolly balanced warm malts and herbal goodnesses, but nothing to focus on, and an unfortunate swampy bit cropped up early and I can’t shake it. Medium body and a slightly salty finish.

One of my favorite. None of the notes are over-powering. It’s a nice blending and good balance of the ingredients. Not too hoppy, not too fruity or spicy. Served best in a frosty mug at 34degrees.

dekester1 (346) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Poured a deep gold/amber with a light head and lacing. Aroma was of piney and citrusy hops. Taste was similar - piney and citrus (grapefruit) w/ a decent malt background. Mouth was pretty good - nice density. Overall, a decent pale ale.

Drjohnrock (592) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Twelve ounce bottle from Widmer Brothers/Red Hook/Kona variety summer 12 pack purchased at Western Hills Kroger, tasted on September 21, 2013. Moderate amber color with good clarity, bittersweet aroma with interesting tropical/pineapple notes, medium flavor heavy on the fruit, hops come in at the end. This beer is OK but I hardly think any mysterious alchemy is responsible for its creation--if the commercial deScription was part of my rating, the score would be much lower.

GenDV138 (4122) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - FEB 22, 2014
From notes, consumed on 4/24/13. Bottle poured into a tulip. Pours amber/caramel brown with 2 fingers of off-white head. Aromas of caramel, pine, citrus, light tropical fruit. Tasting notes of pine, citrus, floral notes, herbs, good hop/bitterness balance. Medium body with a semi-dry finish.

tightslice (601) - Redwood City, California, USA - FEB 18, 2014
An average, nice, middle-of-the-road, clean pale ale with nothing too exciting going on. High expectations, low patience. Common.

Draft pour at ditkas Orange I think. Foamy head. Apricot grapefruit and slightly bitter taste. Really good. Wasn't expecting much and was happy
