2013 Advent Beer 16: Crosswind Pale Ale

Returning to Baysville, Ontario for today's selection and yet another elegant and minimalist bottle design from Lake of Bays Brewing. I drank this beer with supper several hours ago, but was unable to write about it until returning from an evening meeting at church.


In some ways, this beer was tailor-made for a busy night such as this: no high alcohol content or complex flavouring, just a smooth tasting, crisp, fresh ale with a decent amount of hoppiness to complement the pizza so commonplace on Monday nights at our house. Nothing fancy, but admirably executed, not unlike landing a small plane in a crosswind.

Bethlehem sees its cow population double today as a second bovine appears on the scene. I can't quite fathom why a cow would be hanging around a stable instead of a barn or field, but perhaps it was just in the neighbourhood and wanted to see what all the commotion was about. Or saw the other cow and wandered over for some species-specific company.


At any rate, I'm sure they are just as confused by us humans; I know I certainly am at times.
