Back Tracking A Little...

Good full beer. 1 pint 0.9 fluid ounces. 6.0% ABV. Camra Gold Medal 2001 (A British award?) Around Mary: A beautifully executed bottle-conditioned ale. Split this one with Dan the Geologist on my birthday. UPC: 62067 02810.

To the right of Mary: RCH Brewery. West Hewish. Weston-Super-Mare. Hand brewed ales. Ale Mary is bottle-conditioned by Wessex Craft Brewers. The ale, therefore, contains live yeast and matures naturally in a bottle, producing the sparkle and complexity of a cask conditioned ale. Store upright in a cool place and pour gently to avoid disturbing the natural sediment. (Swede comment: some people like the sediment - I'm impartial.)

To the left of Mary: Ale Mary - A dark, rich spicy bottle-conditioned ale, resonant with Christmas seasonal flavours (spelling error :P ) and designed to take the chill off the coolest winter night. Ale Mary has a warm and sweet aroma of cloves, corriander and ginger. The palate provides touches of rum, raisins and sultanas, with a dry fruity finish. This ale has been exclusively brewed for us by Paul Davey of RCH Brewery.

Does anyone know what the Camra Gold Medal is?
