Notes/Commercial Description:
Pure and crisp this is a beer with nothing to hide. Wisconsin two-row barley malt ensures a mellow and smooth body. We imported Noble Hop varieties from Germany and the Czech Republic to ensure a fine mature aroma with no coarse bitterness.

3.58/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

12 oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass.

A - Pop the cap off this bottle and Totally Naked pours a nicely carbonated pale straw yellow color that's crystal clear and crowned by an everlasting start white cap of foam. The frothy pile of beer mousse lays sheets of lace all over the glass for a stunning display of beauty.

S - Simplistic pale malt brings a grainy aroma with a crispness matched by soft nuances of floral noble hops for a pleasing, bare-bones nose.

T - Completely basic, pale malt flavor just peeks through the blinds at breadiness leaning more towards grains while nearly non-existent hop flavor trails off giving the beer an almost tonic water-like flavor.

M - Totally Naked's touch of carbonation barely keeps this light and crisp beer from being pretty watered down-feeling. The slick, almost oily body lacks any pizazz, finishing clean leaving no trail that you even just had a sip of beer.

O - Totally naked, Dan Carey is letting his skill hangout for everyone too see and, as their track record might suggest, it's a pretty big skill. But I feel his skill as a brewer is just about all Totally Naked has going for it because there's little about this beer that's otherwise interesting. As they say, "this is beer at its most basic" - completely free of any sort of flaw but also lacking much of any reason to drink it, I feel. Just a vehicle for introducing alcohol to the blood stream, Totally Naked, along side Spotted Cow are two perfect beers to draw the "big beer" drinkers into craft.

Bottle at the hotel bar in Wisconsin. The beer is mostly clear and has a straw yellow body with a half inch of white head. The expected aromas of malt, grain, cereal like notes. Pretty clean and refreshing. A decent example of the style, and certainly a large step up from the ubiquitous macro crap that floods our culture like a mudslide avalanche from the darkest depths of Dante's Inferno. Anyhow, this is light on the palate and simple. A straightforward, easy drinking beer. OK.
