Pours a pale golden yellow with a white head. Not much carbonation. Smell and taste is honey malt. Has a grassy aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Overall a good lager.

Pours-Light golden color. Super clear nice bubbly 1 finger head. Love it. Aroma- grass, biscuit, apple. Taste- some biscuit, little banana, grass, light Apple. Super crisp and clean. Kind of catty. Mouthfeel refreshing and bubbly. Not overdone. Overall- diggin this as a refreshing beer to drink a lot of. Or drink quickly. Not super deep. But a good drink.

Transparent with brilliant gold color. Thin white head. Yeasty nose with a little honey and grass. Slightly buttery flavor. Mild and balanced. Not a lot going on, but solid for what it is.

Meh. Grainy aroma and taste, almost corn like. Very light floral hops. Finish is barely semi-dry which doesn't make it very drinkable despite the simplicity. On par with many macros.

Pure, light and transparent, the beer that has nothing to hide does have a little trick up its sleeve. The use of 2-row malt gives a hint of savoriness, caramel, toast and nutty influence to a beer that would otherwise align itself well with Czech pilsner.

Bright golden and crystal clear, Totally Naked tops with a loosely knit foam stance with sweet grain aromas with hints of honeysuckle, light caramel and bread. Herbal and floral hops sooth the grains and help the first taste to lead with sweetness. Malty with caramel, honey and bread crust- its savory upstart is realized.

Sweetness carries across the middle palate with a savory cereal taste. Bread, mild honey and powdered sugar is simple and somber while the hops turn lightly grassy, peppery and with a dry hay-like bite. Lemongrass and apple share a light ester quality while the beer trends brisk and snappy.

Medium-light in body, the beer's lingering sweetness keeps it from premiere dryness. Its subtle but complex malt taste allows the beer to take and sweet balance into finish. A short aftertaste of cereal and herb carries a mild bitterness and a bright grassy spice.
