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

355mL. Pours a clear, lighter orange. Medium off white foam with decent retention and rockiness. Aroma is delicate floral, citrus. Taste is bland, papery with some heftier rich butter biscuit backbone. But soapy, bland body distracts and it ultimately tastes like nothing.

ben4321 (4383) - 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, it’s 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 wasn’t a huge fan of this one. It’s an okay at best, fairly uninspired APA. It is fine, but I really just didn’t love it at all.
