YOUNG AND JACKSON’S NAKED ALE

Young and Jackson's Naked Ale. On a trip to Melbourne I swung by Young and Jackon’s after hearing about it from fellow Beerio, Graeme Bernauer.

Located on the corner of Swanston and Flinders streets, it’s a nice looking old school pub that’s been around since 1861. Along with the usual suspects I saw a tap of the pub’s own beer the strangely named Naked Ale. I decided to take a punt and order a pint of this mysterious ale.

Well it wasn’t what I was expecting. Very pale yellow, slightly opaque with a thin body and high carbonation.

It looks suspiciously like a mediocre Hefeweizen. I was expecting some kind of old school English style ale. It tastes like a very watery Hefeweizen. Thin body with a mild banana flavour and low bitterness. Halfway through I was wishing I got the Hop Hog for the same price. Apparently it is a Hefeweizen and is brewed by Matilda Bay Brewing Company.
