Slim Chance ale combines the best attributes of a crisp, refreshing ale without the extra calories. Golden kilned malt and a touch of wheat create this smooth, satisfying ale that is not your typical light beer.

Pale gold pour, with nose of hopcitrus and pale malt. Tastes pale malty, grainy, with hops, citrus, slight spice, and a watery palate. Not much going on here.

This yellow/gold beer poured with a decent white head and a caramel aroma. It goes down fast and clean, but there is not much flavor.

blipp (9691) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 7, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear gold with a white head. Sweet grainy malt aroma, rather light. Light flavor as well hints of grainy and sweet malts. No off flavors. A decent, easy drinking session ale.

My first rating from the Beerhive. Not exactly the nest beer, but anyway. Pours a light golden color with a nice medium white head. The aroma was light glue-like malts, light hops. The flavor was simple and decent; lots of sweet malts, sort of glue-like. Watery and easygoing. Not bad.

drowland (9057) - Georgia, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Drank straight from the bottle for lack of a glass... Not bad, doesn’t taste too adjuncty, but it’s still a light beer. Aroma reminds of mild soapy water and the flavor is light with a hint of grain and biscuit.

2.6
Ibrew2or3 (8814) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Pours clear gold with micro thin white head. The aroma is bit grainy with floral hops, a sense of esters and a touch of lemon. The taste consists of both a grainy malt and floral hop bite enhanced by carbonation. Soon after the water thin body becomes alarmingly apparent. By midway I get a sense of citrus and esters mixing with grain and floral hops as well as a note of sweet malts. Not something I’d try again. Just too thin, watered down and lacking.

jredmond (8644) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 23, 2009
Bottle. Pours a light yellow, gold body with no head. The aroma is feint malt and maybe wheat. The flavor is very crisp and refreshing for what it is, which is a moderatley boring golden ale.

I was just looking in the mirror today, and said "boy, are you fat!?!" ..thank goodness they made a light beer for the overweight beer drinker ... . Pours a standard gold with a low fizzy head ... and whats the deal with airline food ... . light corn husk in the nose .. . gambling is great, no doubt about it .. . hmmm, some flavours , light corn and other light sweet notes .. . scott fell last week and hasn’t shut up about it since ... . If this was on tap at shitty BMC bars (95% of all bars) and it was a mystery $2 pint deal, this would replace butt light in a week! ... that being said, it lacks any real micro brew flavours, but it gives you what it says... a light golden ale, no frills, and not offensive .. .

12 oz bottle, drunk straight from bottle. Aroma is mild malts, grains. Flavor is grains, slight sweetness, touch of hops. A pretty refreshing beer.
