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

Smells good, looks good, mouthfeel is a touch oily, mediocre taste, just ok. It seems Widmer has been hastily putting out mediocrity the last year or two. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml bottle (Oak Barrel, Vantaa)
Pleasant fruity hoppy aroma, lots of caramelly biscuity malts. Dull sweet caramelly malts. Watery palate. some minerally harshness. Finish gently bitter. Extremely boring ale.

Diabobale (271) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - APR 12, 2015
Si presenta con un bell’arancio, medio, velato con lievi riflessi dorati. La schiuma è poca, beige e cremosa, ma con persistenza quasi nulla. Al naso straripante è la presenza dei sentori di frutta matura (pesca gialla su tutti), sopraffatta dal miele e dalla carruba sul finale. Il corpo è nella media, molto morbido, con una carbonazione essenziale. Il gusto però è leggermente stucchevole, troppo dolce, con presenza di un leggero sentore resinoso e con un amaro finale erbaceo di lieve persistenza. Il sorso, così, diventa rotondo, per nulla secco, che non lascia una bella sensazione di pulizia.

Belle couleur miel, mousse faible et sans tenue. Odeur amère très présente, très agréable. Bière plutôt plate, goût houblonné très fort, touche florale bien développée vient après. Très bonne bière, entre la Pale Ale et l’IPA, avec cependant des arômes très développés.

A very nice beer. Poured 12 oz bottle into a weizen style glass. A nice golden to orange color, 13 SRM. (a little cloudy). About a finger of off white eggshell color head. I drank this a week before the "Best by" date so that might account for the slight lack of carbonation. A nice orangy pale ale aroma and a well balanced American pale ale flavor. Nothing extraordinary. The body was probably a little on the heavy side and the finish was a little dry. But a nicely crafted beer.

hotstuff (4393) - Indiana, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Rated on 12-06-2013 (Bottle from Kroger’s Marketplace-Fort Wayne, IN) This beer’s appearance is a small off-white head that mostly diminishes, transparent golden head, slow rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt and pine hops. The flavor is pine, citrus hops, bitter, and bready malt. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. A quaffable APA that is not overly hopping tasting.

AWISLguy (1622) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle from the Malt Shoppe. No bottle date, but the 30th anniversary cap. Pours a clear pale orange with a bit of an off-white head. Aroma has subtle citrus, pine and old beer hall malts. Taste is of sweet and sour fruits, some light citrus, some chewy resin and pale malts. All fairly subtle. The citrus with some pine show better down in the glass. Medium bodied without much to it, unfortunately. Finishes somewhat short, sweet and a bit earthy. Nothing to see here, move on. Not been impressed - typically - by this brewery, so the theme continues. 12.2
