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

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 (3990) - 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 (8800) - 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 (835) - 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.

ElGaucho (2329) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle. Perfumy, floral hop aroma. Similar to Widmer Hop Side in aroma. Clear amber body with a thin off-white head. Following the Hop Side I was concerned that a lower alcohol, lower flavor beer might be a little subdued but I’m really impressed with this. Session qualities with a slight bready finish. Really nice.

r464 (2126) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Quite malty with a caramel sweetness, full with hints of butterscotch. Thin at first, but builds quickly. Hops are sidelined.

Finhead (1433) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2013
A slightly hazy, reddish-gold pour with a white head. The aroma is fruity and floral with notes of strawberry and orange. It has a medium body with a smooth texture and average carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet with slightly more bitter finish.
