Concluding Remark: I really wanted this Sly Fox Pilsner to taste like a Gummy Bear, but it doesn’t. Not even a watered-down Gummy Bear. In fact, it doesn’t really taste like much. It has maybe a slight taste of cider, but weakly so. However, as Joe remarked, there’s no strong flavor, but it’s not necessarily offensive. And it comes in a can, and as the Oskar Blues Brewery tells us, that’s a pretty good thing.
And on second thought, maybe Gummy Bear-flavored beer would be kinda gross.
