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

Kind of a basic lager with a little hop finish. Nothing too noteworthy but not a bad backyard beer.

backdaft (286) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2013
On tap @ Basil’s in Appleton. Clear amber in color with a thin white head. Sweet caramel malt aroma... not a good sign. The taste is sweet caramel malt and some piney hops. Pretty average, nothing really jumps out at you, I’ll pass.

Pour from a bottle on an Alaska Airlines flight. Darker golden color with a slick of white foam. Aroma is heavy sweet malt and caramel with a very small touch of pine into the finish. Taste has more pine and bitterness but it takes the backseat to the sweet malt and caramel. Clean mouthfeel but very ordinary and almost as though they went out of the way to hide the hops.

12 oz bottle from the six type sampler case. A nice blend of hops makes this stand out from the rest.

Brew42 (62) - - JUL 24, 2013
Appearance- Pours clear amber with slight head Smell- Best part of the beer. Smelled like a mix of caramel and fruit. The fruit/sweetness mix reminded me of a blueberry muffin. Great smelling beer. Taste-Completely different from the smell. Basic bready/crackery flavor with a little citrus Mouthfeel- Smooth with very slight carbonation. Overall- I was a little let down. I was expecting a stronger flavor after I smelled it but still a decent beer.

This golden ale has floral notes. A hoppy flavor which finishes clean and doesn't linger. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Butters (4020) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Clear golden amber with good near white head. Nose has almost a perfumy/earthy note. kinda like lima beans, but not offensive. Citrus, but herbal. Smooth and not bitter, until the very tail end that has a grassy bitter twinge. Overall, pretty easy drinking pale ale. I could drink quite a few of these.

3fourths (8984) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber body with a short white head. Juicy maraschino cherry / pear / fruit cocktail nose with lighter hints of tropical bubble gum and pine sap; leafy and grassy at times, and a little musty and sweaty game-y (animal hair), but that character seems to shapeshift back into a more typical Cracklin’ Oat Bran / bread / grain / toffee Caramel, Munich and Vienna malt character. Sweet and oily with medium carbonation. Nothing to change your world here, just a lot of resins and juicy hops and a typically-rough Widmer malt texture with their grating artificial carbonation. Chalky + sugary = sweet tart candies in the finish.

GnarlyGnome (852) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Bottle: Caramel orange pour with a foamy light tan head. Aromas of toffee and grapefruit. The flavor is a wonderful balanced roasted citrus flavor. It’s one of the best beers I have tried from the widmer bros label. Nice middle of the road, solid drinker.
