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.

PorterPounder (7768) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 16, 2009
Tallahassee, Fl. - Publix Supermarkets - 12 oz bottle.Pours a slightly murky medium golden with a bit of a glint and a slight white head. Sweet aroma with hints of distant fruit and some buttery notes. Refreshing flavor with some of the same buttery notes, muted citrus, and just a hint of cereal. Crisp mouthfeel. Not a bad summer refresher.

TheAlum (7135) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2009
12 oz bottle courtesy of the Binnys Singles Rack (Orland Park, IL). Pours a nearly clear golden hue, light, well carbonated, small white bubbly head that dies to a film eventually, light lacing. Aromas are some citrusy lemon, adjuncty malts are a bit harsh and corny, faint pale, lemon juice, cereal malts. Initial is light bodied enough, with a big watery lemonade feel, faint cereal and corny malts, with a mellow sweetness but a funny watery lemonade tart note. Finish dies out hard, strangely, with little remaining on the palate at all which is surprising given the lemony citrus that youd think might stick around. Largely water, with light lemon juice and weak malt. Perhaps Im being hard on this, but this beer is simply a macro made up to convince you it isnt.. which loses even more points with me.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle:   So I held onto this one for a while.   Having said that, its fiery golden, moderate to large frothy white head, spotty lacing, with fairly strong carbonation.   Somewhat of a musty hay/straw/grass aroma, with minor wheat, a little stale wheat.   Pretty much stale maltiness up front, the aroma of grass/hay/straw translates but not as defined.   Feels a bit stale.   Likely age I am guessing.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Finish is clean, not a lot there, guessing thats how this one was intended.   Perhaps appealing to light beer drinkers?   One that I will stear away from given other options, albeit its not disgusting like so many others.

Pours gold with a white head. Smells of dry malt with a stray floral note. Tastes grassy and watery with some peppery splashes on the finish.

JPDIPSO (6095) - Wauwatosa, USA - SEP 14, 2009
Light golden color with a diminished off-white head. Pale malt, grain and grass in the aroma. Starts with bits of malt and honey in the flavor. Middle has some hay and grass. FInish gets drier with more grain and hay. Feels is a little prickly, but ok. A simple, boring ale.
