The hottest 100 of beers is like the hottest 100 of music - a popularity contest, not a blind judged competition.Got voted number one beer in hottest 100 beers on the craftypint website.
Was quite a controversial result at the time because many hadn't heard of the beer.
Plenty of folks (on theads here and elsewhere) suggested they had run a bit of a social media campaign getting mates to vote to get that result.
I quite like the beer myself but as another long post on the subject around the traps on AHB, question whether McLaren should have won, I think some of Stone & Wood's stuff should have taken top gong, but maybe that's just my love of hops talking.
It is a pleasant inoffensive session beer though for sure. Good one for the hot weather months and is made pretty flawlessly. Yet to drink a bad one.
