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

Though the beer was very light on the palate and smooth going down, the rest of it was unmemorable . The aroma offers a hint of wheat, and the taste was much of the same. It is not a bad beer, but it is not great either.

A lot of head that is long lasting. However the rest of the beer doesn't look overly appealing. Aroma is good, but unfortunately is very light and fades quickly. The same can be said for the taste. Definitely not a must try... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nickls (1815) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - APR 7, 2014
Tap. Frothy offwhite head on a hazy sorry rust hue. Light citrus in both flavor in aroma, with some slight passion fruit sweetness in both areas as well. Some slight grassiness and finishes astringent which is weird for such a uninteresting brew. Lighter soft body.

Ambro206 (105) - ITALY - APR 4, 2014
Una onesta birra commerciale. Ben luppolata, discretamente bilanciata anche dalla maltazione comunque generosa. Ottimi sentori erbacei e di fiori. Gusto pieno. Noto nel retrogusto una leggera astringenza. Rinfrescante e dissetante. Ittima d’estate

Wolfbass (889) - Firenze, ITALY - MAR 31, 2014
Non è il diavolo dai, si lascia bere abbastanza bene. Bel colore, discreto naso e un gusto a metà tra caramello e agrumi.
