The Bear Naked Ale is a decent simple to drink amber. The beer poured a hazy amber with thin head that did not lace. The scent and taste were fairly non-descript...pretty much a simple amber. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with decent carbonation. Overall this beer is ok...definitely sessionable....but slightly boring.

It had a great light to it. Nice and golden view through the glass. It's aroma was very pleasant. I could smell the faint odor of the hops lightly. Surprisingly, the hop flavor was very well balanced to the thiness of the drink. One could sip the drink fluidly without being shocked with hops flavor. Personally, maybe I would have had the flavors be stronger, but the drink itself can definitely be drank by a general audience. Its light flavor allowed it to be a very drinkable beer for its flavor.

A: Tawny yet light copper with a bit of haze. A few random bubbles rise to the small off-white head. It keeps a ring of foam and leaves an okay amount of lace.

S: Citrus, floral/herbal, barest hint of spicy hops. Some bright fruity esters. Background, lightly toasty pale malt. Smells good, but I want more umph.

T: Balanced, but leaning to the hops. Fruity citrus of orange & tangerine up front, floral/herbal/spicy in the middle, end is lingering citrus & herbal which gets increasingly woody as the finish continues. Lots of light, bright, juicy esters are mingled with the hops. Toasty pale malts provide a good platform for the hops show, and just a hint of sweetness. Quite a nice showcase of hops and nice fruity esters.

M: Just medium budy but still with a hint of chew. Lightly balanced carbonation. Bright & refreshing – leaning to crisp – yet only semi-drying finish.

D: Nice juicy-fruity citrus – both from hops and esters. Rather more pale and amber. Lighter body, loads of citrus hops, mild malts, and all the light & fruity esters. Regardless of style, it is a very nice, characterful, tasty, and drinkable beer.
