Beer Tasting: Sly Fox E.S.B.
Jake's E.S.B is brewed by Sly Fox Brewing Company. This was from the tap at their Phoenixville location. Have you tasted this beer? Let us know what you think. As a suggestion, try to keep the review as brief as possible for each of the following: appearance; smell; taste; mouthfeel; and drinkability. Appearance Adam: thin head, copper Bryan: a quickly dissipating one-finger head Smell Adam: nothing of note (it was smoky in the dining room) Bryan: faint aromas of malt and hops barely perceptible Taste Adam: bitter tang, lingering bitterness Bryan: malt and hop character much better balanced and easier to identify than in the Sly Fox Red (the beer we had before this one) Mouthfeel Adam: light upfront, clean, carbonated Bryan: well-rounded and fuller flavors than the Red Drinkability Adam: yes if you like ESBs this is a good example Bryan: Yes, and enjoyable too Seconds? Adam: oh, yes Bryan: yes, please!
