Light gold color, small white foamy head. Aroma is griny, grassy and sweet. A light bodied lager, some malts and hops. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. Good flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter

I like the bear motif of this company, as well as the labels. Each case comes with its own general fun facts on the species of bear in question which is a part of the label's name.

Poured from a 341ml brown bottle, it's a clear deep golden colour, no real head worth speaking of, and a wee bit of lacing. Aroma contains sweet biscuity malt, seems a little off, this may be an old batch. Flavour is biscuity as well, and has a subtle mesquite aftertaste to it. Hops are very faint and don't even compete with the malt. The curious (odd) aftertaste catches in the back of my throat, not really making me want to reach for another.
