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, youre 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. Dont get caught with your pants down, drink responsibly.

An extremely drinkable amber ale, nice and malty with a little sweetness. Blows Fat Tire out of the water IMHO.

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.

Draught at the brewpub. Pours amber with an off white head. Smells of caramel, some peppery splashes, tea. Tastes of sweet citr4us, rosey, some caramel notes, earthy finish. Enjoyable.

A - Pours a clear amber-orange color with a a finger of white frothy head. The head fades fairly quickly to a ring, but laces okay. S - Aroma is full of cirrus hops and some sweet fruity aromas. There is also a touch of sweet lightly roasted carmel malts in the background that breaks through. T - Starts off with some fruit esters and orange peel flavor. Lots of fruit elements here. Through the middle the malt comes through alongside some hop bitterness. The finish has some nice sweet fruit flavors and more of the hop bitterness that linger nicely. M - Medium to medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Very nice and all around crisp beer. Lively on the tongue and very clean finish. D - Extremely drinkable. The flavor is fairly sweet, but it stays balanced throughout. Feels very nice and crisp and very refreshing.

I poured a 12oz bottle into a dimpled mug.

Appearance: Pretty shade of dark copper/brick orange-red. Very hazy, but some carbonation visible. Forms a small, yellowish, soapy head that mostly fizzles away and leaves trace lacing.

Smell: Light perfumey flowers with sweet malty undertones. Slight confectionary notes of caramel, toffee and nuts.

Taste: This is a by-the-book amber ale. The flavors are akin to an Oktoberfest with the Midway flavors of candy apple, fried dough and roasted nuts - only with the intensity turned way down. Lightly bitter up front which gives way to sweet, confectionary notes of toffee and hints of red apple. The only problem the volume is set on low. Sure, theres plenty of maltiness to carry the palate, but not enough hops to give it some bite. The complex, but mild palate is very drinker-friendly, though and Bear Naked Ale would make an ideal starter amber for the craft beer neophyte.

Mouthfeel: Lower end of medium-bodied, but not thin or watery per se. Seems a little tepid, but bitterness gives it some intensity on the tongue. Slight malty, sweet aftertaste.

Drinkability: Bear Naked Ale is one of those beers thats easy to drink because its not a beast of a beer. The tenable palate and low ABV of approximately 5% makes it quite light even for the style. Good as drink on its own or with bar fare or a stew or gamey meat.

Overall, this is a pretty standard American amber ale - not bad at all, but not all that impressive.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2011
Growler. Pours clear coppery orange with a small creamy beige head that leaves a trail of blebby lacing. Aromas of fruity, slightly bready malt, caramel, and a little bit of pine. The flavor is spicy pine, a little dough, and slightly sweet caramel/berry. Very drinkable and smooth, with moderate carbonation. A solid beer; this growler didnt last long.

Bottle. Golden orange with a thin white head. Toasted malts, bread, crackers, light earth, and a light floral bitterness. Clean and really drinkable.
