Very surprised it won a Gold award for it’s styleat GBBF. To me, it was simply "run-of-the-mill", nothing outstanding or noteworthy.

Cask. Light scent. Brown chestnut ale with white top. The brewery commends its moderation. This may be a new word for bland. But the bitterness is accented today by a slight over-chilling. Smooth enough but unspectacular.
