On the 8th Day of Xmas......

I don't  really believe in Santa Claus, but as my previous post proved, there is always a place for  kind person to provide me with excellent beers, as is the case with Vocation. As I said, I had fully intended to return to the Market Tavern for another dose of their 'Chop and Change' but circumstances dictated that I had to trip into Huddersfield. And it would have been rude not to sample the odd beer or two.

My first call was the Sportsman; good beers but nothing with the wow factor, but I had overlooked the two empty pumps. I was returning my glass to the bar, I am a tidy creature, when I espied a green pump clip that had a familiar look. 'North Riding' Mosaic Pale had arrived. It arrived quietly without bells and whistles and almost eluded me. It was as excellent as ever. A great hop, a great brewery, and a great beer. There is a Santa Claus after all...
