Widmer Alchemy Ale

CIMG7543

This is a new year-round pale ale from Widmer named after Alchemy hops. This beer also features Pale, Caramel, Munich, Vienna, and Extra Special malts.

Stats:
American Pale Ale. 5.8% ABV. 40 IBUs. Oregon.

Caramel color. Nice fluffy head with a nice sticky lacing.

The nose has a huge floral hop note coming through. Hints of citrus are also present. It smells pretty fantastic.

Mouthfeel is a bit too light, but it’s highly drinkable with a medium carbonation.

Slightly sweet malts up front with a coconut flavor appearing just after. The hops aren’t all that similar to the nose, but a more piney and earthy flavor but quite well muted. Just a bit of bitterness on the finish with a light cracker flavor.

Decent flavor, even better nose, but just not quite “there”. 86 points.
