Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Thank you shan8454 for this brew in trade.

Appearance: Golden amber with a thin white head. Lots of carbonation, and mild lacing on the glass.

Smell: Hops, Pine and citrus.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of bitter hops/pine and citrus.

Overall: Good brew, glad I could try this one.

Light amber/golden in color with a faint aroma of light malt and pine, Back Forty Naked Pig Pale Ale is a crystal clear beer that produces a decent level of foam that lasts about a minute. It eventually settles into a thin white layer and leaves little or no lacing.

This beer tastes about the way I expected based on appearance: Lighter than average and very clean, with flavors of biscuit malt, pine, caramel, and bread. There is some fruit in there as well, but it is more pear- like than citrus and isn’t as dominant as the other taste components.

Naked Pig is an easy- going, basic pale ale that is acceptable enough that most anyone who tries it will like it. The beer is non- assertive and lighter than most, but not so light as to taste watery. There is just enough going on here to satisfy the palate but not enough going on to make it a standout in its class.

This pale ale is crisp, clean, and agreeable overall and while I don’t rank it among my all- time favs, it is good enough for a try.
