Naked Elf takes a hard look at the less-is-more theory. Ever since we developed The Mad Elf, we’ve speculated what it would taste like without the cherries and honey. So what lies beneath the fruit? Naked Elf is unfiltered, so the spicy yeast taste is more prominent in this strong, hazy orange ale. The combination of the Pilsner, and Vienna malts give a lot of body and minimal sweetness, but Naked Elf has a dry finish. Finally, the heat of the alcohol makes its presence known in the finish. The Naked Elf’s finest quality is the delicate balancing act between a lively yeast kick and a slight alcohol note that lingers in the back of the mouth—constantly reminding us not to overindulge in this complex, warming elixir.

Red copper pour. Big head. Smells of esters and fruit. Tastes with a bit of Clove and cinnamon that mellows out and tingles. Very nice and exactly how I imagine my tangle with a naked elf would go

DiarmaidBHK (4244) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2016
Draft at taproom. Pours brown with a thin khaki head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Orange and Other juicy fruit on the nose. Solid triple aspects on the tongue. Finished with that warming thing you get from mad elf. An interesting experiment but I'm missing the fullness and the fruitiness of the mad elf. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle via trade. The beer is a clear copper color with a white head of foam. The aroma has sweet candies and some toffee and caramel. The taste is more sweet than anything, but I get some spice as well. Bigger body and medium carbonation.
