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.

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.

Fatehunter (1833) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 28, 2015
Pours a finger of head on a hazy darker straw body. The aroma is nice: grainy and a little honey. The taste is on the verge of dank grapefruit, a little malt sweetness. The texture is crisp. A nice pale ale.

Pyobon (1180) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 30, 2015
(Bottle) Clear amber with slight shirt-lived white head. Pleasant aroma if citrus, pine and toffee. Medium body with slight stickiness and good carbonation. Taste like the aroma: caramel toffee with pine and citrus, plus some peppery spice and some tasty but gentle bitterness in the finish. Pleasant beer.
