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

cheap (4525) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2015
From a bottle this is a more of an orange pale ale. Has a somewhat cloying sweet aroma, alarming. Quite strong on the palate at first with hops but then it smoothes out a little. Pretty good co2 impact. If this is celebrating alchemy, so be it. I’m just not sure if this beer is alchemy. One thing I gottah say, this beer hides the alky, would never know its near 6%.

malvrich (95) - durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2015
A: Dark amber almost orange very clear little head not long lasting S: baked biscuit with herbal or piney hop presence T: biscuit or slight burnt toast malts combine nicely with the hops providing a lingering piney note on the back end especially. good balance, nice tasting pale ale M: light medium bodied. slightly below average carbonation. finishes with clean bitterness. nice and not overwhelming at any stage O:a very good, inoffensive ale. not much really stands out but thats probably good as this is a very tasty and drinkable brew. i like it and would buy it again

fantti (785) - FINLAND - JAN 4, 2015
Pullo @ Baltic Princess Pub. Kaatuu lasiin kullanoranssina ja suht kirkkaana, vaahto on niukkaa. Tuoksussa on karamellia, pihkaa ja kevyemmin havua, perus APAa. Maussa karamellisuus ja havumetsän pihka, puu ja havuisuus jatkuu, jälkimaussa on hieman ruohoisuutta. Suutuntuma on keskitäyteläinen ennen kuin se loppuu kuin seinään. Humalointiakaan ei ole, johtuen tod. näk. vanhasta pullosta. Pettymys, turhan hentoinen näihin prosentteihin nähden ja tylsähkö olut.

Braudog (5999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle. Orange-golden-amber, little head. Slightly metallic but outdoorsy character overall. Mellow caramel with a mild hop flourish. Decent. (#5909, 12/31/2014)

airrick2003 (666) - Louisiana, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Appearance: the beer is a very clear light amber color, pours with a medium beige head, Aroma: not much aroma at all, possibly some malt Taste: lightly sweet malt caramel up front followed immediately by a bitter kick, has a spice to it as well, bitter finish Palate: bitter aftertaste, lively carbonation, lighter but not super light mouthfeel Overall: a good pale ale, could use more character from the hops besides the bitterness, the malt shines thru as well, needs work on the aroma ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
