12oz can, purchased from Perfect Pour a couple weeks ago. Printed on the can is "#183 12/10/13". Mostly hazy orange color. Pours with a bigger off-white head. Leaves good thicker sheets of lace. Tastes like there might be something a little off, like a hint of tartness to this. Some caramel malt, good spicy malt, bit of citrus rindy orange hop, hint of pine. Something like rye malt. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter, light (out of place) tart. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light slick texture. Alright pale ale now, despite it’s flaws. Reasonably smooth and easy enough to drink. Probably a lot better fresh, though, as intended. Dragged as it went.

Transfer from BA review on 4-5-12 - Poured from can into pint glass Appearance – It’s not so pale. Pours a beautiful deep amber color with a large billowy off white head. The head has some pretty good retention and leaves a fair amount of lacing. Smell – The smell is of some bready and biscuit malt with a toffee sweetness and a very light citrus aroma. Taste – A very bready taste meets the tongue up front. The breadiness has some nice roasted malt flavors mixed in. There is not much of the sweetness that is detected in the nose, but maintains a relatively drier malt flavor. The hop flavors really start to develop more toward the middle and end with nice citrus flavors. Mouthfeel – Creamy for a 5.1 % abv beer. The carbonation is very normal. Overall both serve the beer quite well and are quite suiting. Overall – This is a very tasty and very drinkable beer. This is a wonderful session beer and one I will definitely come to on more occasion.

Una buona birra americana, ma con un carattere un po’ spento che però lascia indovinare una buona presenza luppolata e amara nel finale.

ippopotamo36 (599) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 20, 2014
355ml can purchased at Bibere bottle shop in Rome. Pours a fantastic orange colour, a bit cloudy, with a small but persistent white head. Nose of bread, malts. In the mouth this beer gives a little bitter palate, but the overall is quite malty and a bit flat. All in all a good beer but I have drunk some better ones.

Burk @ Domus Birrae, Rom. Bärnstensfärgad med smutsvitt skum. I doften hittas säd, malt, apelsinskal och jord. Smakinslag av apelsinmarmelad, kåda, citron och örter. Något torr och jordig munkänsla. Ingen särskilt god APA.

I poured a 12oz can into a mason jar. I was canned on 1/8/14 and cost $2.65 ($0.22 per ounce).

Appearance: Slightly hazy shade of orange/copper. Pours an average sized, off white, foamy head which laces and retains fairly well.

Smell: Sweet malty scent with orange marmalade notes.

Taste: Sly Fox Phoenix Pale Ale is not your typical American pale ale, in fact it’s probably better classified as a British pale. The British malt character seems to be the star of the show as it imparts a distinct malt character you don’t find in American offerings. Orange marmalade is the predominate flavor, coupled with light nutty character and perhaps some toasted bread. The hops impart some mild spicy/dry bitterness, though they also accentuate the orange taste. Additional sweetness on the finish, which is nice. While this palette is satisfying, it’s a little average and familiar. Perhaps the age of the can has diminished the beer a little, but it’s still more than decent.

Drinkability: This beer has exactly the mouthfeel and drinkability you expect in the style. Medium body, crisp mouthfeel, refreshing for a moment, but a little residual dryness. At 5.1% ABV it’s not particularly heavy nor robust, though not light enough to session. Sly Fox Phoenix Pale Ale works fine as a standalone beverage.
