Sly Fox Chester County Bitter

This was the other beer that I had at Brick House. It’s just listed on the menu as a “cask beer.” But, after some investigation (read: asking the waitress), I found out it was Sly Fox Chester County Bitter. I had tried Sly Fox before (not this particular type) during Philadelphia beer week and really liked their stuff, so I was excited to try this. I couldn’t get any decent pictures of the brew due to the low lighting in the restaurant.

ABV: 4.5%

Style: English Bitter

Trivia: Sly Fox runs a Bock fest and goat race annually in May.

Random: I don’t think that I’ve ever had an English Bitter, nor seen one. I was pretty excited to try it.

I received my Sly Fox Chester County Bitter served in a pint glass. The lighting was pretty poor, but from what I could see, this was a copper color that poured with two fingers of head. The head stayed throughout drinking it with some lacing on the pint glass. It had an earthy smell to it, and on first taste was definitely bitter, but pleasant. I put the ABV higher than it was (thought it would be about a 7). I got some hops on the taste. Mouthfeel was smooth. A decent brew, but nothing I’d rush back to. I’d like to try some traditional beers of that style before I come back to this.

Untappd Rating: 3.0/5.0
