Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: pale orange-amber hue with a crystal clarity and a goodly effervescence. Head is a thin finger of frothy ivory foam. Decent.

Smell: nice aroma with plenty of caramel, bread and biscuit. There's also a light fruitiness here with a hint of citrus that works quite well. I actually like it.

Taste: flavor is rather caramelly with a light biscuit component and another hit of that light fruitiness. This is an amber that I actually rather like.

Mouthfeel: a surprisingly heavy and well-integrated carbonation gives this beer a good creaminess despite a somewhat light body. I like it a lot.

Overall: this is a tasty and drinkable amber that I would gladly quaff again. Good stuff.

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.
