Itís only been 3 days and Iím already trying to avoid Fullerís pubs. Theyíve got the market cornered at least on the streets I walk down on the traditional old British pub looking places. So Iíve tried the majority already.
Anwyays, the Fox itself. It was a little sweet, sort of fruity (pears). There was a musty, earthy quality about it (and in a tasty way). itís deep and dark ruby red in color.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask. At Volo Cask Days 2009. I guess I was the only one to love this beer. Hazy amber with a large, lasting fluffy beige head. Dry aroma, mild pine duff, black tea with lemon - the taste followed - lemon/yea, herbal, with light crisp red apple sweetness - quite dry and crisp, lovely. Soft, dry, leafy mouthfeel, a bit still, but really well-balanced with a perfect finish. A lovely, lovely cask! Youíre all wrong.
