COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First brewed as a one-off by Brian O’Reilly roughly three years ago, the easy drinking session brew returns by popular demand (really). Sly Fox Pub Ale is brewed with British Pale malt and a very small amount of wheat. It is lightly hopped with a combination of continental hops.

Ungstrup (29207) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2007
Cask at the Phonixville location, July 2006. A yellow beer with sediment floating around, and with no head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of hops and malt. The flavor is sweet malty with a light citrusy note, leading to a slightly bitter end. Easily drinkable, but nothing special.

On tap at the Phoenixville location. Poured a medium yellow/ golden color with a small sized white head. Aromas of citrus, toffee, and lightly grainy. Tastes of citrus, grain, toffee and a wheaty finish. Smooth and creamy body that was on the thin side.

hopscotch (9041) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2006
Nitro... Clear, light yellow ale with a mid-sized, creamy, never-ending white head. Citrusy nose with a note of lemon peel. The flavor is well-bittered and just a touch citrusy. Light-bodied and creamy with pillow-soft carbonation. Finishes crisp and lightly bitter.

egajdzis (5290) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2006
Poured a golden color with a large, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of itrus fruits, toffee malts, cereal, and light floral hops. Taste was crispy, with light citrus, grains, some toffee, and light, dry, bitterness. Extremely quaffable.

Mehmet22 (35) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2006
Golden color and extremly clear with a white foamy NO2-induced head. This one minute-pourer finished well balanced, smooth and came across ricey with hint of apple skins or pear.

TomDecapolis (4470) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Nitro @ Royersford location. Pours a translucent light golden yellow with a medium creamy white head. Nitro gave it that great sustaining creamy head. Aroma of a sweet maltiness, very light hop presence and in general a light aroma overall. Flavor of a grainy lightly sweet malt with a very light hop bitterness with some grassiness, wheat and dough/cereal/bread. Smooth, light and refreshing.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2006
Nitro @ Phoenixville: Slight wheaty aroma. Poured golden in color with large, just-off-white, Nitro head. Clear. Head Lasted. Great lacing. Flavor was slightly hoppy and bitter in the begining. Then it turned yeasty and tasted like dough. Not much malt flavor. Lightly hoppy and malty; Moderatly yeasty. Well balanced. Nice, long-lasting, lightly dry finish. Smooth. Light to medium body. A little creamy in texture. Overall, a good, easy-drinking ale with a nice body to it. Superior to Boddington’s. I like Nitro!

DocLock (7824) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2004
Deep yellow color, with excellent head and lacing (which goes without saying since it is Nitrogenated). Tastes extremely smooth, crisp, and slightly dry, with a hop/malt finish. My only complaint is that I couldn't get this one to go.
