COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The official beer of the Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta held annually on the Schuylkill River each May. A perfect balance of North American malt and hops create a supremely drinkable pale ale with a vibrant, citrus character. Perfect for sippin’ on the banks of the Schuylkill while you enjoy the races. Look for the Sly Fox beer tent at the Regatta on May 9 & 10, and for Dad Vail Pale Ale on tap at your favorite Philly area bars in the weeks leading up to the event.

[Cask] Amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, orange, caramel, and light toast. Taste of citrus, pine, orange, and light grapefruit in the finish. I’d like to try a SF pale ale with little to no speciality malts...

Firkin at Yards Real Ale. Pours a lightly hazy copper with thin off-white head. Aroma of caramel and grapefruit. Medium body. Sweet malty caramel with citrusy hops. Moderate bitterness.
