  • Ale is best used against monsters with high health, but low attack.
  • Due to the defense loss suffered on consumption, Ale is not good to drink while battling a boss. Although, using an Ironskin Potion can be a good way to counter the defense decrease.
  • Despite the fact that it's considered a "buff" potion, once drunk the icon cannot be removed by right-clicking. Considering that, it may be classified as a "debuff."
  • Getting healed by the Nurse will remove the effects, further indicating debuff nature.

Update Info



  • Became an ingredient in Molotov Cocktail.


  • Added to the game.
