This reddish amber ale is generously hopped throughout the brewing processes. Extra flavor and aroma are obtained by adding raw hops during fermentation - a process known as dry hoppng.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2004
Nice amber color,small head that faded very fast leaving little behind.The aroma was sweet malt and caramel with a faint hint of hops that gets stronger as it warms up.A bit thin in the body but the flavor is decent.Malty and hoppy with a decent but mild caramel taste.This is another brew from them that has a sad lack of carbonation.Over all i guess it's somewhat refreshing in a water sort of way,but the lack of carbonation in the 2 brews i've sampled so far is disturbing.Thanks to Joeybgood for sending this brew my way.

DocLock (9243) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2004
Pours amber/reddish, with medium head. Aroma of hops and malt. Tastes hoppy, with a malt/sweet undercurrent. Finishes with more hops and more malt...pretty good.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Draft sample, July 03. Say this really ain't bad! Nice caramel nose, a rather rich-looking golden hue with some real head; dry-hopped, fairly bitter throughout and with some pungent hints on the nose, very fresh, bitter herbal hints.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 30, 2002
Head is minimal. Aroma is sweet/caramel malt. Color is an opaque/amber. Flavor is somewhat hoppy and malty sweet. A bit unbalanced if you ask me.

ElGaucho (2371) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2002
Faint aroma; too faint to detect specific components. Deep goldish amber color, reminiscent of the New Orleans Saints football helmet. Some sweetness, some malt and medium hop bitterness. The hops are what make this one Fox River’s second best brew (behind Trolley Car Stout). Still, Fox Tail Amber falls a little short of what it could be.

Better than your average beer.
