    I don't recognise the winner at all. In the categories I've had one or more of all of them and it's only the Golden Ales where I've tried them all.

    It's in lots of pubs round here. Must admit I haven't tried it, the name tends to encourage me to try something else.

    Never heard of it.Twitter seems pretty disgruntled. I suppose it's good to see a Bitter as Champion. Pity nothing from Kent or Sussex in the lists.

    I've had a few Church End beers around Warwickshire ,IMHO they are fine without being exceptional so surprised by the accolade . CAMRA often seem to choose modest ABV beers as Champion Beer and maybe this is a sop to the anti drinking lobby.

    The choice of Golden Ale winners is more like it,very glad that Blue Monkey get some recognition for exceptional brewing,personal view and all that.

    Never had it but its not raved about on Rate Beer. Currently reviewing at 3.1 / 5, so decidedly average.

    Not sure what that says about Rate beer or CAMRA ?

    Agree the name is crap. Wouldn't mind the chance to try it though.
