This beer rocks! Light alcohol, heavy caramel and light flowers in the aroma and flavor. Lightly bitter on the backside. Crytal clear, deep amber hue. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. Lightly pungent, lightly bitter, dry finish.

Draft. One of the top beers out of 10 on offer. Aroma and taste of a Butterfinger bar. Interesting.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2006
On draught at brewpub: Hazy redish amber colored body with a small, creamy beige head that has nice retention. The aroma is sweet malt, caramel, toasted malt, and hints of dark toasted bread. The taste is earthy caramel, toasted malt, lightly burnt toast, and what seems to be a bit of a house yeast character - earthy, very slightly salty yeast (I like it). Light-medium bodied, medium carbonated.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 11, 2005
Dark reddish amber, light tan creamy head. The nose was roasty and toasty, nutty, some caramel, with a touch of chocolate. More roasted malt to start, then backed up nice with a slight hop bitterness for decent balance. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, roasty, lightly bittered finish. Not my thing, but could be used for a newbie crossover beer...

Bottle from the brewer: Pours a clear copper with a thin white head, aroma has light malts and grassy hops, light bodied, mellow carbonation, starts and ends lightly bitter with a clean aftertaste. A fine brew from an exceptional brewer.
