    No boating due to ice,and only one pub trip .

    BOTW goes to Thornbridge Crackendale on top form in The Old Cross Tavern.A single hop citra pale ale ,delicious and dangerous at 5.2%.

    Next week boating in Oxfordshire once conditions allow.

    Gentle week:

    Hop Back Haka
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Blue Monkey Tie a Yellow Gibbon*

    BOTW Blue Monkey Tie a Yellow Gibbon. Great name, great traditional pale ale starting round and fruity and finishing delightfully bitter. Blue Monkey just don't brew bad beer and at 4.3% this one flew through the three pint test.

    Another decent week for me.

    North Riding - Cascade.*
    Stod Fold - Jarrylo.
    Five Towns - Peculiar Blue.*
    Neepsend - Rollabout Stout.
    Yorkshire Brewing Co - Waverider.
    Nethergate - Umbel Magna.
    Abbeydale - Unbeliever. (Keg)
    Acorn - Black Oak.
    M&B - Brew XI.
    Vocation - Life & Death.*
    Ossett - Treacle Stout.*
    Phoenix - Monkeytown MILD.
    North Riding - Citra.*
    Dark Star - Hophead.
    Five Towns - What in the World.
    Riverhead - Happy Valley.
    Fernandes - Double Three.*

    Several in that list capable of winning on a quiet week, but the Life & Death, a hoppy, fruity delight of an IPA won by a nose. Sampled in The Hop, Wakefield.

    A run of the mill sort of week.

    Purity Pure Gold
    Adnams Mosaic
    Youngs Bitter
    Sambrooks Wandle
    Beavertown Neck Oil
    Harveys IPA
    Shepherd Neame Masterbrew

    Botw is Adnams Mosaic taken in The Ship.

    Not much doing this week either I suspect .

    Goacher's Special House Ale 3.8% abv
    Harveys Sussex Best Bitter 4% abv
    Both fine, but too cold:the Beast from the East must have got into the beer store and dialled down the flavour.
    My future son-in-law gave me a couple of cans of Gun Brewery-Zamzama IPA 6.5% abv. (The training must be taking effect.)Not necessarily a beer in my comfort zone, but my BOTW.

    from the wood, at the brewery, served by the head brewer and his wife. Not sober when I left either.
