    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?

    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?

    Maggs Mild is a very good Mild and by far the best thing they do, agree with everything else you say here.
