Outstanding hoppy beer using Pilgrim and Styrian Goldings for full-flavoured satisfaction. Good body and luscious aroma. Inspired by the statues of water nymphs in York House gardens in Twickenham, known locally as the "Naked Ladies".

jjsint (1962) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2015
Cask at the Eagle, Cambridge. Mid-gold with a loose white head. Slight citrusy smell: grapefruit and blood orange. Pleasant but simple. Lovely sweet taste with a bitter kick in the finish: hints of pear drops and Lotus biscuit spread. Competent golden, bordering on the gorgeous.

shortcake biscuit malt, dry lemony, herbal spicey, quite big bodied, brief finish. A little safe and unimaginative.

Grumbo (1089) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2015
Cask at my local GK hungry horse, which normally only has GK beers so this was something of a find! Poured a pale gold colour with small bubbly head. Aroma is mildly hoppy, floral with notes of orange. Fairly high level of bitterness, light sweetness. Light body, average carbonation. Texture slightly sticky. Lasting bitterness to finish.

mzaar (2571) - Varberg, SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2015
Klar orange öl med ett långvarigt vitt skum. Nästan imponerande tråkiga och svaga dofter, där det är säd och malt som ändå hittas. Samma återkommer dessvärre i smaken, men där hittar ändå en del frukt in också. Medel mot lite kropp. Liten beska. Tråkig.

Cask@gallows. Yellow light hazy. Pale malty, mellow yellow fruity- tangerenes, some herbal tones. Med light bodied, spft, well bittered. Bit bready malty, fruity sweetness. Liked it. Flavourful, and just perfectly bittered for my taste right now. Some murkyness though.
