look: 4.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance:
Bright, golden hued body that is incredibly clear. A nice, pillowy head hangs around for awhile leaving plenty of lacing in its' wake. A soothing carbonation is present, although light. A bit more carbonation and it'd be perfect.

Aroma:
Boring and a bit skunky. Faint grass and clay notes. A bit of clean lemon zest is present, but lacks potency.

Taste:
I'm not typically a fan of this style, but I found myself enjoying the crisp, refreshing nature of Totally Naked. There isn't a lot to note sadly... Sourdough, wheat, and yeast are pretty much all there is. A very dull bitterness steps in for an encore but is quickly shoed off-stage.

Mouthfeel:
Ultra light! Refreshing and crisp. Very, very easy to drink.

Overall:
As I mentioned above, I'm not really a fan of the style. Hwever, this one was decent and easy to drink. I pefer this others in the genre, but definitely not a go to beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: A pale golden color. Creamy head with thick lacing left on the sides of the glass. Above average active carbonation in the glass while drinking. Clear transparent body. Very clean look to this brew.

Smell: Clean pilsner yeast aroma. Mild hop bitterness. Refreshing wheat tones add an extra level of complexity. Leafy greens come through on the back end. Refreshing.

Taste: Medium bodied hops on the front end. Pilsner style wheat body keeps coming in waves. Light malt combines well with hop presence. Bright front transitions well to a medium dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Easy drinking. Something that will not sit long in anyones fridge.

Overall: New Glarus continues to knock it out of the park with many styles that other breweries ignore and neglect. The clean mouthfeel of all their beers has to be their trademark for me.

What am I missing? 98 by The Bros?? Is this beer just a master of its style? It doesn't have the impressive impression on my palate. It's like 33/77 on ratebeer as well. I think it's a great, drinkable American Pale Lager, but it's nothing to write home about.
