COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
Tesco Brewing Awards winner.
"This fresh, light, award-winning beer delights with its grassy, crisp taste and zippy floral aroma. Flavours of white grape and melon develop to reveal a subtle bitterness... a taste that is quintessentially English. Perfect with chicken and pasta - and exquisite with fresh Dorset fly-fished trout."

Mothroy (80) - - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle at home. Attractive golden brown ale with small head. Aroma is "Turkish Delight", heavy on rose scent which is not unlike spicy American hops which is carried through to the flavour. In this case there I not a lot of hop bitterness. An interesting beer but not a session ale.

jjsint (771) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle at home from a gift set. Bright gold, like a lager but deeper in hue. Fast-fading head and lots of bubbles. Smell is flowery, perfumed: rosewater with lagery malts. Weird. Taste is very sweet and artificial, again with a Turkish delight theme. Some bitterness pops up if I slurp great gulps. I try it from the bottle to ensure that it isnít my glass (it isnít). Final verdict: strange and a bit of a pointless beer, but not altogether bad. Badger core range beers are often fairly simple & inoffensive but good. So why are they mucking about with this sort of thing?

Bottle as Badger Englandís Own. Blond ale with a pleasant balance of sweet citrus tang and bitter hops finish. Best Badger ale Iíve had. Decent lacing too.

jmgreenuk (4350) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2013
Bottle from Sainsburyís. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a broken frothy white head. The aroma is malty and aromatic hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a smooth malty bitter hop palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A super refreshing summer ale. Really liked this.
