    Shere Drop and Citra for me,both taken in 2013 and not since for some reason,though both enjoyed in bottled format since. I marginally preferred the Shere at the time.

    I get Shere Drop and Citra on a fairly regular basis, bit surprised with Shere Drops success though it is a decent drop,Oakham citra is heavenly but never had the Grey Trees before today , fittingly at Olympia, It was OK but only a 6/10 for me.

    I'm not sure if I've actually tried Shere Drop but I know the name. Church End have done well again and their Gravediggers Mild is a lot better than the Goats Milk. I wonder if any were unfined?

    At the GBBF tasting tonight, the Grey Trees Afghan Pale won the participants' vote (including mine), although Roger Protz went for the Lacons Audit Ale, but the Shere Drop is certainly a decent beer of its type.

    Mrs Ale here - wondering how on earth Castle Rock ever win anything - even if it is a bronze...all of their beers just taste the same to me!

    I haven't even heard of most of these.

    West Berkshire Maggs Mild - I hope this is less boring than Good Old Boy, Best and the other one that's always for sale.

    Five Points Pale - nice!

    Oakham Citra - very nice!

    Greyfriars Afghan Pride - I wonder how well this would go down with the Taliban?
