So gentlemen and ladies we have a winner
1st place we have silly old sod from @Dads_Ale 44/50
Joint 2nd place we have bramele bitter @Hazelwood Brewery and English pale ale @dave_77 41/50
And 3rd place we have north mill bitter from @HalsteadMills 37/50

Thank you to everyone who entered. All beers which were entered were stored in my brew shed which is quite cold so I appolagise for and beers which are scored lower on aroma, flavour or appearance (chill haze ) but all beers were stored the same. I will send Feedback tommorrow evening to everyone.

Cheers all!

I like the BEoIR yeast, I have used it a few times now in American Brown & Amber ales. Very reliable and good value.
