London Craft Beer Review: Naked Ladies from Twickenham

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's London craft beer review is for Naked Ladies from Twickenham Fine Ales.

Share It!

Naked Ladies was a cloudy light gold bitter. Hoppy with a citrus bitterness. Herbal rather than floral like chrysanthemum leaves or asparagus. Also very very faintly thyme and honey.

OK I know I would usually start off a review for a beer with a name and pump clip like that with some side eye. However, I am willing to let this one slide because it is named for a famous Twickenham landmark. This sort of thing is not unusual for brewers.

The rest of their branding is FAIRLY gender neutral but I don't see why it has to be a woman on the clip for beers like Red Head, or Pale Beauty. Why does no one ever call a beer Tall, Dark, and Geeky and have a picture of a beardy dood nerd on the clip? Come on people. I would TOTALLY buy that beer just to get a picture of the clip.

The Beer in Review is a blog about beer. Mostly British beer because that is where I live. I post a review every week day. Make sure you check in on Friday which is when I reveal BEER. OF THE. WEEK! You can contact me with comments and questions on twitter or facebook.
