Black bears can weigh 600lbs, sprint over 25mph and climb like a squirrel. They have terrible eyesight, yet can smell you 20 miles away especially if your packing fruity gorp and apples. Hey, to a bear, you’re just like a 180lb fruit bowl coming down the trail! Bear Naked Ale is an all natural medium-bodied amber ale with a brilliant copper hue. Top fermenting ale yeast and a high proportion of imported Munich malt create a clean and crisp beer with a toasty, fruity backbone. Don’t get caught with your pants down, drink responsibly.

Bottle: Cloudy, light brown-orange with a small, off-white head. Grain malt and caramel aroma. Taste is slightly tangy, fruit and grain. Caramel malt....citrus. Slight herbal hopping. Not bad, but nothing outstanding.

Pour from a 12oz bottle, BOM club. Nice copper colored brew but virtually no head. Aroma is crisp green fruit and a cheesy lactic. Taste follows. aroma. OK but no standout.

On draft at Adirondack. Again, the waitress did funny things labeling my sampler, but the one labeled Bear Naked poured clear yellow with a white head. Nose is some sweet malt, some floral hops, some toast, and some fruity yeast. Flavor is similar with some mild floral hops and sweet yeast in the background. Light to medium in body with lingering toast and yeast in the finish.

Pretty good amber. Has all you would expect from the style with a little bit of hops to balance. Smooth and dry.

Not a very good amber. Pours a nice clear red with a white head. Smells of berries. Taste however is of salty sweat. Not great. Had on tap in Saratoga.

I love this beer. It is one of my favorite beers out there. Very smooth taste with an amazing, deep after taste. Highly recommend it.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - JAN 5, 2014
1/5/14. 12oz bottle thanks to JBVatkeens. Clear light copper pour under a small khaki head that fades. Mild caramel and butterscotch aroma, some metallic aspects, biscuity. Very mild flavor, hints of caramel, light fruitiness, more metallic aspects, otherwise quite bland, but not overly offensive. Not bad.

Bottle. Light copper pour with a thin white head. Caramel, grass, pound cake. Easy to drink and light but sufficient body. Smooth finish. Caramel throughout. Overall nice and well balanced everyday beer.
