look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from can into Leffe chalice.

A: Clear medium amber brown. tan eggshell head, not long linger, not much lace. Good carbonation.

S: not much, probably typical. progresses and improves over time. Malty, beery, almost beer hall, and a little stale stink.

T: Nutty, sweet, malty, brown german bread. Some hoppiness, bitter on tongue edges. Brown german whole grain bread + caramel, + Black tea, + a little cocoa. All subtle and gets better as it warms.

M: Creamy for a low alcohol lager. Cream soda. Feels medium weight and nice finish.

O: This one definitely grows on you, a worth example of the style.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from the can into a pilsner style glass.

A great copper brown and crystal clear body, with good thin rising amounts of carbonation. Head is uniform and light tan with about three fingers with a little bit of retention and settling to a small soapy puck and collar.

Nice light sticky malts, a sense of crispness and light toast that seems almost white bread. Mild clove sensations. Pretty solid.

Palate has a little bit of light wet body, with not much backbone. Quite hop forward a bit with a nice pine and stinging grass finish. Caramel and malt sweetness seems to be a little present but takes a bit of a backseat on the swallow. Clean. Mild grainy and toasty aromas with a good hop like heat to it

Overall pretty easy but a little unexpected, but still pretty fun to drink. Interesting this SlyFox brewery is with their German styles...

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a clear amber to dark amber in color with light visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall creamy beige head that reduces quickly to a very thin film in the center of surface of the beer. Light to moderate lacing is observed.

S: Light aromas of caramel malts with some light sweetness present as well.

T: Moderate flavors of bready malts with some light amounts of caramel sweetness. Light amounts of lingering bitterness.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Creamy and smooth.

O: This beer is really enjoyable and easy to drink - definitely a sessionable beer and one I would enjoy having again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a mostly clear medium brown, moderate cap of slightly off white froth, little retention on lacing. Scent leads with plenty of sweetness, but lacking in malt character, light caramel, faint faint vegital note. Taste again is sweet, but not in a pleasant malty way, mostly residual sugar-like, light caramel. Lighter side of medium bodied, some creaminess but no crispness. Uninspiring, lacking character.
