John Troegner Describes Naked Elf

John Troegner spoke about 2011 Naked Elf on Facebook today:

Naked Elf is an exercise in deconstruction and minimalism. This ale has distinct roots in The Mad Elf minus some key components.The cherries? Gone.The honey? Gone.The chocolate malt? Gone.Coming in just under 8% ABV, Naked Elf is an unfiltered golden beauty that displays a pronounced yeast flavor that made The Mad Elf famous as well as a touch of alcohol and some mellow malt flavors.

Naked Elf was last available about 2 years ago. (I was told in the taproom last December it wasn’t made in 2010. ┬áIt’s back this year as Scratch #46
