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.

DocLock (10702) - 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.

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.

JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, 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.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 30, 2002
Head is minimal. Aroma is sweet/caramel malt. Color is an opaque/amber. Flavor is somewhat hoppy and malty sweet. A bit unbalanced if you ask me.

Juelze (1146) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2005
Aroma of floral hops and malt. Taste is malt, roasted grains, and a bit of hops join the party. Color is reddish-copper. It had a thin and watery finish as well as bitter.

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.

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.
