Naked City Screening Room Red
Roasty malty aroma. Deep copper red with sudsy white head. Roasty malt flavor spiked and balanced with a nice hop pine character. Quite good for a red. Notes: On tap at the Pike brewery, Seattle visit May ’17

Naked City Ch-Ch-Ch-Cherry Bomb
Toronado, Seattle. Lacing gray soap, dark amber-tinged brown. Cherry sweet syrup, cough syrup, with some bitter grain. Astringent and sweet. A bit of a mess.

Naked City The Can In Black
Tall can, courtesy of riversideAK, pours with a very un malt liquor like deep dark body that supports a tan head. Is this a Malt Liquor? Sure enough, proudly stating Premium Malt Liquor right on the label. The aroma offers up roasty notes that feed right into a molasses sensation and then thin spicy black licorice notes and not too much else at this low serving temperature. The taste is similar as I get dark roastiness and a modest level of spicy black licorice nuanced molasses. As it warms a tad and after a few more ounces the sweetness ramps up a bit but at the same rate as the roasty to almost charred molasses. Fun beer that is a pretty big departure from the traditional put-your-fist-through-the-wall in-order-to-choke-it-down Malt Liquor.

Naked City Genius Juice
Tap at brewpub. The description on the menu is essentially that this is a filtered vermont IPA. Tropical fruits with medium-low bitterness. Pineapple, mango. Nothing overwhelming but solid.

Naked City The Can In Black
Tallboy can extra on a trade. Poured a sort of flat black body with not much of a head. Aroma is wet burmt toast, booze, rotting burnt citrus and bad wet paper bags. Flavor is a bit better, wet burnt toast, earthy, booze, dirt, more bunt mzlts. Body is medium at best with fizzy contemplation. Meh..,,

Naked City The Big Lebrewski
Dark brown, sweet but uneventful...the nose goes nowhere. Touch of coconut, hint of alcohol and roast, has a touch of sweet sugary goodness but never rounds into that full richness the best examples have.

Golden, sweet malts are a bit sweet, so really basic, with just a touch of fruity hop.

Cloudy, has a light stewed fruit, lots of bitterness, the malts are harsh, honestly. Husky. Like doing that style but at the margins.

Naked City Genius Juice
On tap at Naked City, pours a cloudy dark orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out piney hops, citrus and biscuity malt. Flavour is very cloudy, with piney and resinous hops, with a dry bready malt. Very messy and confused, but pleasant enough.

Naked City Brother Orchid
On tap at Naked City, pours a clear dark copper with a small beige head. Aroma brings out Belgian yeast, some fruity esters, and candied sugar. Flavour is along the same lines, with candied sugar, Belgian yeast and cloyingly sweet brown sugar. Way too sweet for the style and totally inauthentic. Not a fan.

Naked City Scotch Wha Hae
On tap at Naked City, pours a hazy amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out Belgian yeast, raisins and general fruity esters. Flavour tastes more like a cloyingly sweet raisin beer, with intense candied sugar and caramel. Way too sweet and messy. Not good.
