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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
I have a pretty high standard for this style because itís one of my favorite session beers. Before a brewery has their chewy double IPA or their thick barreled stout there should come a deliciously drinkable pale, weather it be English or American in style. Widmer has done a few but Alchemy is the latest and greatest? Replacing Drifter Pale, unfortunately Alchemy is a mere glimpse upon what this style can be. What frustrates me here is the base aroma and flavors are there but only watered down and fall terribly flat in the finish. Iíve grown to like a Widmer beer here and there but most of them come off watered down and almost soulless. Sorry Wid bros, I bought three six packs this summer and my tastes buds are still not convinced. For some reason Iím still fortunate to drink a fresh, beautifully colored beer even though it washes down like water, could it be the incredibly low price point and shiny packaging?
