COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

ben4321 (3846) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/6/13

Aroma: The aroma is a little light, metallic hops, some grass, and caramel/toffee malts
Appearance: It pours a reddish-orange color, with a white colored head that leaves plenty of lace
Flavor: The taste is not really all the hoppy or malty, itís decent, but also a little thin flavor-wise
Palate: The body is light-medium, though it feels a little thin, with a decent, not great, mouthfeel
Overall Impression: I wasnít a huge fan of this one. Itís an okay at best, fairly uninspired APA. It is fine, but I really just didnít love it at all.

nuplastikk (4321) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2013
12oz bottle. An interesting enough APA, maybe Widmerís answer to CItra Pale Ale craze? The Vienna and Munich malts here really make the difference, giving it a nice German feel, approaching Rye, with a firm earthy, citrus hop bill. Pleasant melon tinged aroma. This is a really solid beer, straightforward and well done.

Amber color with very little of an off white head. Big hoppy nose with some citrus and pine notes. Strong bready malts with coarse bread, English muffin and lots more citrus and pine hops. Nice hoppy ale.

Vestlake (134) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle pours a golden amber color with virtually no head. Aroma is malt, hops, and a bit of spice. Hoppy on the front, but not much in the middle or back. Pretty good taste, though I wish there was more flavor on the finish.
