    This must be the first time in decades when I've actually tried (or even heard of) the three overall winners.

    Wandle??? WTF? Unless it's undergone a dramatic recipe change, injecting some (any!) flavour...

    Pleased to see Salopian do well, their beers have been exceptionally tasty over the last couple of years.

    Another shocking choice from the guardians of real ale. New drinkers will think if this is the best what are the others like.Self promotion fail?

    Had an Ape Ale there today and it was top notch as was the Saltaire Triple Chocoholic.

    Amazingly, for once, I've tried all the Gold medal winners, apart from the Strong Bitter. Still quietly stunned about Boltmaker being Champion. Citra would definitely have got the nod from me.
