    Default Beer of the Week (w/e 10th January 2021)

    A pub is for life not just for Christmas

    Default

    "Not Waving but Drowning":

    Bottles:
    Oakham Citra*
    Elusive Lord Nelson 2020*
    Phipps NBC Stingo No 10
    Oakham Green Devil IPA*
    Titanic Plum Porter*
    Vale Gravitas*

    Cans:
    Oakham Hop Slam*
    Yeastie Boys Gunnamatta
    Marble Lagonda*
    Marble Rufus*
    Brew York Big Eagle*
    Oakham Citra T90*
    Marble Extra Special Marble*
    Marble Berimbolo*
    Marble Cross Collar*

    An impromptu visit to a local micro now turned bottle shop added to variety. All welcome except the Spingo No 10 which I'll leave on the shelf in future.

    BOTW Marble Extra Special Marble. Malty for Marble but beautifully done and balanced with just enough bitterness to keep it going down. An excellent winter beer which I'd like to try on cask.

    Pub withdrawl symptoms evident.


    BrewDog/Cloudwater -- New England IPA (c)
    BrewDog -- Dead Pony Club (c)
    Titanic -- Captain Smiths *(b)
    Oakham -- Citra* (b)
    Marble -- Earl Grey IPA * (c)
    Marble -- Uppe Hela Natten Macchiato Porter (c)
    Marble -- Lagonda* (c)
    Black Sheep -- Milk Stout * (b)
    Marble -- North South Petite IPA (c)
    BrewDog -- Punk IPA (c)


    Although the Lagonda was superb BOTW goes to Marble Earl Grey IPA ,the extra kick helps and I got the faint tea smell .

    Next week no need to reorder just yet but no harm in doing some research so that I can diversify the portfolio.

    Winding down a little after Christmastide:

    Hook Norton Greedy Goose (4.2%) (b)
    Vocation Heart & Soul (4.4%) (c)
    Robinson's Trooper (4.7%) (b)
    Hook Norton Double Stout (4.8%) (b)
    Titanic Plum Porter (4.9%) (b)
    Northern Monk x Fieldwork Eternal Sunshine (5.5%) (c)
    Siren Broken Dream Breakfast Stout (6.5%) (c)

    Also had a few lagers just to mix it up a bit, but in terms of 'wow' factor, it's an oldie-but-goodie:

    BOTW: Titanic Plum Porter

    Having a week off the beer this week and will reconvene the week after.
