COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

0.33 l bottle, brought by a friend, from Lake George, USA. Orange colour, clear liquid, dirty white head. Aroma has notes of figs, raisins, anise, bilberries, malt and brown sugar. Light to medium body, bitter and a little bit sweet taste, dry texture, bitter aftertaste.

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 (5980) - Valdosta, 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.

Not surprisingly, this is not the only beer named ’bear naked’ ;) Nice looking, handsome auburn with nice lacing pattern. My favorite color for beer. Nose is fruity and grassy. Taste is caramel, heavy malt notes, with a bit of hop dryness. Good beer for fall and watching football. Thanks for the trade Ron, I’m liking this brewer.

Ron (2451) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle. Poured gold in color with a thin cream head. Aroma is a little toasty with just a touch of hops. Flavor is almost like an attempt to provide equal parts caramel malt, hop bitterness, and some toastiness. Non-offensive, but very different.

Jow (2014) - New York, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle while hangin out by lake. Nose is faint of malt. Tastes if caramel, toasted malt, earth, and hint of florals. Kinda bland but fine enough

Draft at the battle of the brews in Saratoga. Deep amber color with a malty backbone and sweet tasting. Good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
