Timothy Taylor's Landlord champion again
Keighley best bitter Champion Beer at Great British Beer Festival
Aug 3, 1999 - Michael Jackson's report, tasting notes.
Timothy Taylor's Landlord was judged the Champion Beer of Britain by a panel of consumers, brewers and journalists on Tuesday. It is the fourth time the beer has been so honored.
The Keighley-brewed beer was chosen as the overall winner from nearly 50 finalists in judging at the Great British Beer Festival in London. Mike Benner of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), which organizes the festival, said: "This is tremendous news for Taylor's .... It proves how beers from regional family brewers can compete on the national stage. It's a wonderfully distinctive beer with all the qualities a national champion should have."
CAMRA's "Good Beer Guide" describes Landlord as having "an increasingly dry, bitter finish which complements the pungent hoppiness and complex fruitiness of this well-flavoured and well-balanced beer."
Stephen Beaumont, one of the judges of the best specialty beer, reports on that judging in World of Beer.
