COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Exmoor Fox is cunningly crafted from a cunning blend of several malts and hops to produce a mid-brown beer of unusual subtlety and taste. The slight maltiness on the tongue is followed by a burst of hops with a bitter-sweet aftertaste.

jackl (4596) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Cask @ JDW, Victoria Station. The pour’s deep gold with a small creamy white head. The nose is honey, white grape, soft summery sweet aromas. The taste is much the same: lightly syrupy summer fruits, mild grain. Some red apple. Light, soft body. Overall, well-rounded, if unremarkable.

kingstoni (1508) - FINLAND - JUN 5, 2013
Tap, real ale. Clear copper color with a lasting white head. Aroma of hay and malt. Smooth feel. Slightly bitter sugary taste of malt. Some sourness in finish. Low carbonation.

jookos (2135) - FINLAND - JUN 5, 2013
Cask@angle. Golden, clear. Biscuity bready malts on nose, some earthy tones. Body lightish, soft. Good med bittered, caramel biscuits finish. Ok, but past its prime.

stravale (2099) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - NOV 16, 2012
Cask @ A G Bell, Edinburgh 141112
Amber, clear, thin white head, some lacing
Aroma - light pale malts, very little on the nose
Taste - soft sweet pale malts, light hops, light fruits, dull
Palate - thinnish body. Finish - slight soft bitter linger
Overall - Can’t say much about this as it’s dull with not much flavour or aroma. Very average in all aspects

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2012
Cask handpull, The Felix (JDW), Nuneaton, 13/11/12. Clean shining brass with a low white collar. Barely any aroma; slight oak and peppery spice. Weak jellied orange and peppery taste lapsing into virtual tastelessness. Dab of rauch? Dull beyond description.

berkshirejohn (4526) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2012
Cask at the Monks Retreat (JDW), Reading. Pale amber with a thin cream head; biscuity malt aroma; sweet malty taste with a touch of barley sugar; then a watery and indistinct finish. Average and unexciting.

yespr (31178) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2012
From cask at The Counting House. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is toasted malty, breadish and light toffee. Fruity hoppy, toffee malty to breadish. Bitter and lingering malty flavoured. Smooth and toasted malt finish.

wimpyjoe (3879) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2012 Deep golden colour, some malts evident, but it is the smooth creamy texture produced on the tongue which is the surprise.

tombyars (1356) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - DEC 12, 2011
First tasted this at the Troon Beer Festival in October 2005. Cask, gravity dispense. Clear dark amber in colour with light russet highlights and a thin open white head. Whiff of wood smoke and malt extract in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and poor lacing. Mixed malts give a slight roast grain note followed by a maltloaf flavour, could not detect any strong fruit flavours. Spicy hops evident in the short floral aftertaste. Finish is weak and short on legs with a slightly sweet toffee note struggling through. An ok session bitter.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense) at Kingston Beer Festival on 13 May 2011. Very surprised to find I’d not rated this before. Amber colour. Loose white head. Excellent condition. Rather farty sulphur aroma. Fruity flavour. A bit sweet. Ok but not too inspiring. Not convinced this was in top nick - flagged for re-rate.
