this beer wasn’t brewed to be the best beer in the world, this beer was made to appeal to the bud light, miller light crowd and i think it did that wonderfully. if you are looking for a simple beer this is what you should get. brewblackhole get it right when he said "not meant for rate beerians."

Talk about your average lager. New Glarus’s Totally Naked sounds kind of sexy, but it’s certainly not. It pours a gold color with no head. There is little aroma except for the usual barley/grainy scent of most mass-produced beer. It’s better ice cold because the flavor stays the same (zero) but at least it’s refreshing. For a brewery that consistently puts out good to great beers, this one disappoints big time.

totally naked seemed to be totally naked when it came to taste. It is by far the worst New Glarus beer I have had. It has a taste like Miller Lite to me yet still much better but lets face it thats not saying much.

Faint golden, almost translucent, fizzy thin white head. This is your typical light lager,(insert the usual descriptions here). I would classify this as a good light lager, there are no horrific off flavors.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2007 Rerate. 12 oz, no date. Pours a clear pale golden with a one finger quickly fading head. Aroma of some corn and grain with light grassy hops. Flavor is grain with a corny slightly sweet finish. Light body with moderate carbonation. Works well as a summer beer, but there are plenty of better ones.Old rating follows.Sampled at the brewery (May 21st/ in their little shot glass thing. Pours a clear yellow golden with a tight, fizzy white head. Despite being from New Glarus, I can’t tell what makes this "premium"--seems more like a pale lager. Aroma of corn and grains. The taste is much the samewith a biscuity finish. If we put this in the same category as Bob’s 47(as it is), this gets smoked. As a pale lager I think it’s pretty decent, but otherwise, not so much. 5-3-6-3-11--2.8

Light golden yellow with decent white head. Aroma and flavor decent for the style. Sweet corn like aroma with faint noble hop background. Flavor much the same with some residuel sweetness. Decent for the style.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Almost a clear ,maybe tainted yellow, light aroma of a malt hop mix,and maybe some corn adjunct, palest straw,must be a 2-3 SRM very light ,slightly sweet malt taste,just a touch of bitterness,seems like it was hoping to be a Continental Pilsner,but ended up more an American Light Lager. Obviously not meant for Rate Beerians

Pours clear light bright yellow with little to no head. Aroma of corn, metallic and grains. Flavor? Well let’s jnust say this beer should be called "A Traditional Flavorless American Lager".

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of grain and delicate floral hops, but mostly grain. Appears the palest yellow, with a modest white creamy head. Flavor is mostly of grains, and a bit sweet. Palate is light, soft and refreshing. I suppose the beer is perfectly to style, and an excellent example of a premium lager, but I guess it is a perfect example of a style that does not excite me. Overall it is equal to the sum of its parts.
