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

Caytinator (959) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Kind of lackluster for a pale ale fine overall, spicy hops, nothing that special but passable...fine fresh taste and stuff. Definitely no magic here.

Scopey (7058) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle thanks to the Moncada folks during RBESG 2014 Grand Tasting. It pours clear amber with a small bubbly white head. The nose is soft, fruity, caramel and generic stone fruit. The taste is bitter-sweet, pine, tropical fruits, straw, light pepper and grapefruit with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Simple enough APA, but not bad.

lusikka (6343) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2014
355 ml bottle @ Kaisla, Helsinki. Pours a golden hazy colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of floral hops, orange, some ripe banana and grass. Flavour of overly sweet malts, floral hops, apricot, grass and citrus. Medium bodied. Not that fresh unfortunately.

hopscotch (9242) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle... Pours clear and apricot-colored with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma offers citrus fruits and fuzzy stone fruits, along with a nice caramel undercurrent and a suggestion of resin. Medium-bodied with adequate carbonation. The flavor strikes a perfect balance between caramel, grapefruit and bright, juicy peach. Tongue-numbing, Novocain-like finish.
