Slim Chance is a low-calorie light beer offering from Redhook Brewery in New Hampshire. I’m going to have to take a different approach to reviewing this beer, as the target market for this beer is MUCH different from the beers I typically review.
It’s a light beer, and it acts/smells/tastes like on. Given that, let’s compare it to other light beers:
Analysis: Higher than competition-
Bud Light: 110
Coors light: 104
Michelob Light: 113
Miller Lite: 96
Analysis: Weaker than competition-
Bud Light: 4.2%
Coors light: 4.15%
Michelob Light: 4.3%
Miller Lite: 4.2%
I do appreciate that a smaller brewery is trying to compete in the light beer market with the “big boys”. That said, from a business perspective, it appears that the Slim Chance isn’t matching up. From my tasting, it’s indistinguishable from other light beers. Goes down like water…probably because it’s mostly water.
