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

Very disappointed. Where is the refreshing part. This must be an Anheiser Busch venture . Lemony, like a Corona, but very flat. I have nothing else to say...I have 5 left in the fridge

kramer (4994) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Tap. Pours a clear bright copper body with a small fizzy off-white head that fell to a thin covering. The nose is pretty bright and showing lots of tropical fruit like hops over a slightly sweet caramel malt base. The flavor is really pretty great, surprised that this is from Widmer. The hops are juicy and bright with lots of mango and passion fruit, minimal bitterness, just a slight caramel and toasty malt sweetness on the back end. Lighter bodied and very easily drinkable due to the light bitterness. Pretty nice APA.

Bottle to weizen glass. Clear orange pour white head dissipates quickly. Aroma of toasted grain floral hops slight vegetal/herbal notes. Biscuit malt toasted grain floral hops with a slight vegetal and mint bitterness. Its not bad but I had higher hopes.

Elwood (3211) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a light copper color with a small but lasting off white head. The nose has a little toast, caramel, orange, and pine. The flavor highlights the citrus from the hops and the toasted notes on the malt side. Medium bodied with a medium to long finish. Overall a solid and enjoyable pale ale.
