I went to the Bedford Beer Festival on Wednesday and tried the Camra CBOB, Church End Goats Milk; a 3.8% golden bitter. Quite sharp citric fruit; quite bitter; a touch astringent. Brewed with USA hops. I quite liked it, but there a good number of beers around now that taste similar to this. Is this really the best beer in Britain? Pale beers with USA hops now seem to be the fashion. To be honest, I don't think I have ever agreed with the winner of CBOB. My favourite was Pig and Porter Ashburnham Pale Ale, a more traditional style of bitter.
