look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Poured a hazy blood-orange/brown color from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. A cute, 1-finger head appeared, with some decent of lacing down the glass.

S: Malty aromas of apple, barley, and a touch of citrus. Not much on the nose, and it smells a bit thin.

T: Sweet up-front, with an oaty, bready middle, and a bright swallow. Thin flavor character, with lots of bread, malt, and nut tastes, with a hint of apples and grapes. It seriously tastes like a lager, not a pale ale. Out of the bottle, this doesn't bring much to the table outside of a tastier session beer alternative.

M: Thin, with a slightly meaty middle, but an overall watery complexion that leaves something to be desired.

O: This beer is a straight-up, middle-of-the-road beer, with more lager flavor than one would expect. On draft, I remember it being much more delicious, but seeing as how the bottle is most readily available, I'm a bit disappointed.

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.
