During a convenience store stop in Wisconsin, I spotted this New Glarus brew, grabbed a six-pack, and headed to the counter. My friend’s husband, who we were traveling with, saw me and proclaimed, “You got Totally Naked!” Needless to say, the wife wasn’t too thrilled until she saw he was just talking about beer.

I think there are a couple of ways you can approach this beer. First, this is a great brew which can introduce a person to craft beer. I can see a person who normally drinks Old Style or Miller being able to enjoy this and think that craft brew is not so “high-fallutin’.”

However, if you’re a craft beer afficiando, you may not think this beer is much. It’s a good, solid summer lager that’s not really light, but it’s not super heavy either. It looks good, it tastes nice, but there’s nothing super-special about this beer that makes it worthy of more mugs.

Still, if you’re sweating and need some refreshment, a bottle of this will totally fit the bill.
