mr_h (5927) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - NOV 5, 2017
Cask (3.8%), 1/3 pint by hand-pump from the County Bar, Ayrshire Real Ale Festival 2017, Walker Hall, Troon on 5 Oct 2017: grassy, pale malty aroma, golden with a thin white head and sparse lacing, little bit herbal, aromatic, creamy.

EdButterfield (41) - Dronfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2017
Hand-pulled cask @ The Church End Brewery taproom. Light straw malts on the nose, biscuit malt base in the mouth and on the finish. I'd stop short of calling it 'champion'...

2.9
Towey1989 (3260) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2017
Gravity at The Nottingham Beer Festival. A clear golden colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of cereal malts, some straw, a little citrus, a hint of pee and subtle grassy hops. Taste of cereal malts, grass, some straw, a little melon, a hint of pee and subtle lemon. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, malty and grassy hop bitterness in the finish. More hop than expected but I would say they dance over the tongue. Not worth the CBOB17 title.

Stowaway (1) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2017 does not count
Really not understanding the negative reviews for this beer. Maybe an acquired taste for some, oddly hoppy with a bitterish aftertaste but a little different and very pleasant overall.

jjsint (3492) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2017
Handpull cask at the Blue Boar, Leicester. Dark golden, looks the tiniest bit hazy, with a large loose white head. Aroma’s decent: some light fruity hop with some malt biscuit and a touch of sweat. Taste is bittersweet but also very buttery. Acrid buttery finish. Metallic and citrus notes in the aftertaste. Not terrible but... CBOB? Really?

3.1
MrTipple (6446) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2017
Sweet grain and bread malts, dough, straw, light caramel, light citrus fruits. Clear gold, small, creamy, white head. Light bitter. Some citrus fruits, more grain and cereal malts, wet straw, grass, soft carbonation, light to medium bodied. Average Golden Ale, no idea why it was crowned the champion beer of Britain - it’s dull and boring. Cask at GBBF17, Kensington Olympia.

mR_fr0g (13485) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2017 Cask at the GBBF 2017. Day 5. 12/08/2017. A clear golden orange coloured pour with a a lasting rocky white head. Aroma is soft bready, delicate hedgerow hop. Palate is semi sweet grainy, decent cask condition. Flavour is composed of semi sweet bready little twig bitter grassy hop. Fairly assertive back of the throat bitterness. Not bad.

2.5
sound67 (784) - Offenbach, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2017 Church End Goats Milk, 3.8% - on tap at the GBBF at Kennington Olympia, 2017. Pale golden yellow, clear. Championship Beer of Britain 2017. Lemon, honey melon, milky note. Watery and light. Lemony and grainy at the start. Bitter and hoppy in the middle, but rather flat. Hoppy bitter finish and aftertaste. Nothing much.

3.4
ThreeCats (1002) - ISRAEL - AUG 8, 2017
Clear gold color. Aroma of citrus and honey. Taste citrusy with a grapefruit note and very bitter palette.
