The aroma is toasted malt, sour wheat, grainy. The appearance is a brownish/blonde color, white head. The flavor is bad, lots of toasted malt, some light fruit. The finish is noble hop bitterness. Medium in body. Not good.

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.

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.
