COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

DocLock (7702) - 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.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Dark golden color with a tall beige head. Mild caramel malt mixes with wild flowers, thorns and light goldenrod. Flavors seem to match the aroma well. Late tartness distracts.

muzzlehatch (4424) - 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.

badgerben (4385) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2005
Amber (duh) color with no head. Slightly floral aroma. Bitter hops in the taste. It’s very dry and dusty. I could have sworn I tasted a bit of bread.

Pretty Decent Ale. Amber Coloring. Small Head. Good Hops and Malt. Balanced Well. Some Caramel. Not Bad.

ElGaucho (2189) - 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.

jcr (2165) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 19, 2005
Translucent brown with a thin head. Aroma of earthy malts. Bitterness in both taste and especially aftertaste. Slightly sweet, citrus flavor. Medium body and minimum carbonation.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Pours a clear copper colour with little to no head. Watery on the palate, and noticeable metallicy taste. Aroma is soft almonds and caramel malts. Finish is slightly hopped but mostly watery.

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.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Deep rosy amber in color with no head. Aroma is pine, cedar panels, honey and grass. Overall sweet smelling, hoppy and a nice change of pace in relation to their other beers. Taste is bitter and souped-up with some caramel and rye. Thin - we’ve got an understanding of the importance of hops, but in doing so, the malts were forgotten. Citric hiss, some fresh cut wet grass, but overall lacking in flavor. Highly bitter and dry aftertaste.
