An uneventful blonde ale that has a pretty decent flavor that strikes me as unfiltered. (No idea if it is or not.) Flavor seems muddled above all else. Can't draw much specifically from it all. Smooth feel. Nice enough to drink. Glad I had a chance to try it. Not a typical blonde ale.

A: The beer is hazy dark pale yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin yet dense off white head that never completely died down and also left lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of pale malts are present in the nose along with notes of lemon and orange citrus; the smell becomes a little stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The malts aren't as prominent in the taste and seem to be balanced off a little by the citrusy hops and a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and is a little flat (unlike the picture of the woman on the can), having a low amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and seems relatively good compared to other beers in the style. It's not a bad lawnmower type of beer if you are looking for something all-malt that isn't hoppy, but it does seem a little bland.

The Phat Chance is a good blonde ale. The hoppy floral scent gives one hope for a nice hoppy blonde....but the taste is more malty than expected....in addition there is a metallic twang in the back drop. The beer poured a clear slightly darker golden color with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The mouthfeel is medium to light with smooth carbonation. Overall it is a good beer and perfect for summer evenings.
